    WINEPEX and the Dealer Arena

Our shows highlight a wonderful dealer concession arena that provides the collector with access to stamps and supplies.  Being able to see and touch the material and purchase first hand is an invaluable way to build your collection.  Our dealers have many decades of experience providing real stamp expertise in all aspects of philately.  This provides a perfect week-end philatelic entertainment for philatelists both local and national.   Contact us for interest in being a dealer next year!
