The 31th Annual Stamp Fair is Over

It was held Saturday, October 23 from 10-3.

  Dudley House Museum,
197 N Ashwood Ave, 
Ventura, CA.

It was a wonderful event this year with lots of old and new volunteers and attendees.  There were lots of thanks from the happy parents!  A beautiful cacheted covers honoring first responders is still available.  Don’t miss out on this wonderful souvenir.  Limited supply – more details here.

Thanks to Sheri Oelschlager and her crew of volunteers who made this year’s “Youth Stamp Fair” at the Dudley House Museum a success.  Also thanks to the Dudley House for opening it’s doors to the “Youth Stamp Fair” in this difficult year when the Ventura Fairs Grounds were closed by the COVID-19 virus.  Great job everyone!
