Cachetmakers' Bourse August 23 at APS StampShow 2014

Tables are now available for the Cachetmakers’ Bourse, at the American Philatelic Society’s August 21–24, StampShow. The Bourse will be held from 12 noon to 5 p.m., Saturday, August 23 at the show in the Connecticut Convention Center in Harford, Connecticut.

This is a wonderful opportunity for cachetmakers to present their cachets before hundreds of collectors. The cost of $78 plus two serviced covers to be used as show door prizes, is less than what cachetmakers would pay for many advertisements. Cachetmakers may Register for the tables by downloading the form or by calling the APS at 814-933-3803 ext 217. Registrations are required by July 1 to guarantee inclusion in the StampShow program.

Up to 16 tables will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Each booth will consist of one six foot table with two chairs. No electricity, backup tables, or cabinets will be provided and table locations will be assigned at the discretion of the American Philatelic Society. Tables may only be utilized to sell the table holder’s own brand of cachets.

APS membership is required to obtain a table. If you are not currently a member of the American Philatelic Society, a booth request will be accepted along with a completed membership application.
