Long Beach Stamp Club Kids Korner (Booth 1064)

In 1985, the Long Beach Stamp Club established a program for encouraging kids to become interested in stamp collecting as a hobby.  Over the years, this program has grown so big that we now give away prizes consisting of stamp albums with stamps from around the world.  We have a "stamp drawer" which allows KIDS from 6-17 years old to look through and pick out stamps for free.  Everyone who stops by our booth and registers for the Grand Prize Drawing leaves with a stamp book with two countries and a profile of each country.
