From March 23 through March 25th Azusa Collectibles had a booth at the Garfield Perry Show in Cleveland, Ohio. The show was very well run and Azusa had a successful show. We were able to meet many stamp personalities for the first time. These included Russ Eggert of Dutch Country Auctions, Chris Harmer, Bill Langs, Stanley Pillar, and Sergio Sismondo and his wife Liane. Tom also talked to ASDA President Mark Reasoner about possibly joining that organization. And Gail talked to APS Executive Director Scott English about promotional material for youth stamp collecting programs.
Most of our sales were US and British Commonwealth Stamps, plus lots of Cinderella material. We made many stamp purchases, mostly Italian area material, which is now available for sale. All in all, the show and the trip were very positive experiences.
