The Minnesota Stamp Expo is the largest stamp show between Chicago and the Rockies.  A notice will be mailed to all known Minneapolis/St. Paul stamp collectors.

If you wish to place a business card size advertisement in the show program and have the ad placed on the show web site, check the box on the Dealer Table Reservation Application.  You will be contacted in April for your camera-ready advertisement.  The cost will be $30.00.

Security will be provided during and after show hours starting Friday.   A guard will be provided.  After closing, a motion/security system will be set with the Crystal Police.  As always, dealers are COMPLETELY responsible for their stamps and supplies.  A Dealer cannot hold the sponsoring clubs, show chair, bourse chairs, or the Crystal Community Center responsible for loss or damage.  All Dealers must have a Minnesota Sales Tax Permit and it must be shown to the Bourse Chair prior to setup.  If you do not have a sales tax permit number, you MUST apply for one by contacting: Minnesota Sales & Use Tax; St. Paul, MN 55146-1120.  They may be reached by phone at 1-651-296-6181.
