Circuit Books

Our Circuit Books provide an assortment of worldwide stamps at very reasonable prices.  Currently there are approximately 20 circuit book in our collection.  There focus tends to be on areas of interest to our members who both buy and sell through this venue. Canada, Great Britain, and Australia are well represented while other countries may also be found.  Purchases may be made from our circuit books by either members or visitors. However, only members may sell stamps. All stamps are to be paid for at time of purchase.

 Silent Auction Tables

Our silent auction table also has a wide variety of both stamps and philatelic material for sale. These may be single stamps, complete sets, stamp packets, covers or postal history. This material may relate to a particular country, time period or specific topic. Members or visitors may place bids on any of the items. However, only members may sell material. The Silent Auction end time is announced during the meeting.  All items must be paid for at that time.

Our Members

Our club members have a wide range of both collecting interests and experience. Some collect a particular country or countries, others may collect by topic, some collect a particular time period, while still others may take an interest in cancels, covers, postcards or other items of postal history. Some of our members specialize in very particular areas of the hobby.

Visitors

Visitors are always welcome at the Barrie District Stamp Club. We provide a relaxed social setting where people can ask questions, receive guidance and socialize with other collectors. Whatever your type of collection or your level of experience you will find someone you can talk to, who may have just what you have been looking for. Come visit us, share a cup of coffee, some light refreshments and see what interests you!

Appraisals

The club itself does not actively offer stamp appraisals. We do however, have both stamp dealers and some very knowledgeable collectors among our membership. If you have a collection and require some guidance on it, drop in for a visit and someone will be happy to sit down and chat with you. You may even find a member interested in buying your material. Who knows?
