PENPEX Stamp Dealers
The Sequoia Stamp Club is a place to learn, share and get encouragement from others who love stamp collecting. Our philatelic interests are what draw us to our club meetings. Some of us collect U.S. stamps, others worldwide and some cannot make up their mind and collect everything. We also have others who do not even collect postage stamps but revenue or Cinderella stamps. Only $3 a year to join!!!
Becoming a member: Membership dues are $3 per year with a $1 initiation fee for new members. Pro-rated dues are $1.50 after July 1st. A membership form must be completed.
The SSC Member Handbook gives details about each of the following offerings:
- Auctions: We have auctions approximately every 4th meeting. Members can place stamps or related items on sale in the auctions with no minimum bid (except face value.) All members can bid on auction items. Each seller can place one bid on their item if they feel that the item is selling below its value. If their bid remains the highest, they will receive the item back at no charge. If the item sells the club receives 10% of the sale price.
- Silent Auctions: Member items are placed on sale in the back of the room at every meeting where there is not an auction. Members can place bids on the bid sheet with their member number. The silent auction closes approximately 5 minutes after that day’s program. The person with the last bid gets the item. Members can place stamps or related items on sale in the silent auctions with a minimum bid. If the item sells the club receives 10% of the sale price.
- Kiloware Sales: The club purchases stamps on paper or collections from stamp organizations. The stamps are then offered to the club members for sale.
- Circuit Books: Circuit books contain stamps for sale that are assembled by club members. Books can be checked out at every meeting from Jim Mosso.
- Member Raffle: At every meeting member’s names are drawn to receive a $10 or $5 voucher that can be used toward the purchase of stamps from the club circuit books. Members must be present to win.
- Reference Material: Current Scott catalogs, other clubs’ newsletters, and reference material can be signed out at every meeting from Leroy Harbaugh.
- Members are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
- Newsletter: The Sequoia Chatter is published and mailed to members every odd month.
- PENPEX Stamp Show: The Sequoia Stamp Club helps organize and run the annual free PENPEX Stamp Show which is held the first weekend in December at the Redwood City Community Activities Building.
- Summer Picnic: On a sunny summer weekend, a member and family social potluck picnic is held.
