Azusa Collectibles has been a family run business for over 40 years, starting on Long Island in 1973. In 1978, our first store location was in Medford, Long Island. After several years there and at an East Northport, Long Island location, Azusa spent over 20 years with a shop in Hauppauge Shopping Center, Long Island. For the past 11 years, we have been located in Upstate New York. Our spacious and comfortable well-lit one thousand square foot shop is conveniently located only a quarter of a mile off Adirondack Northway Route 87 Exit 10.
Our store atmosphere reminds many of an old-fashioned stamp shop – great selection of stamps, covers postcards and supplies, good music, free coffee, interesting discussions and personal service! These things were thought not to exist anymore, but they do at Azusa!
In addition to sales of almost every imaginable philatelic item - we have over 250 counter books and dozens of red boxes representing over 40 years of a store active in purchasing estates and collections – we offer both informal and formal appraisals, we purchase individual items and/or entire collections and estates, as needed. If we can’t use the material, we can refer you to other sources (dealers, auctions, etc.) due to our many contacts in the philatelic field.
We are proud members of the A.P.S., Adirondack Stamp Club, American Air Mail Society, American Topical Society, For Orange (Albany, N.Y.) Stamp Club, New York State Postal History Society, etc. In addition, Tom is currently president of the New York State Federation of Stamp Clubs and Societies, publishers of the online journal “The Stamp Insider.”
Our house publication, “Azusa News” is published six times a year. It contains informative philatelic views, our show schedule and an illustrated list of new arrivals.
Our current store hours are Thursday and Friday from 10 AM to 3:30 PM and Saturday from 10 AM to 1 PM by appointment.
