The Twin Cities Philatelic Society is the oldest stamp club in Minnesota and is this year celebrating it’s 100th anniversary. The club originally started in 1913 and has been operating continuously ever since. We have a real mixture of people and collecting interests, with a very strong USA representation, although many of our members are worldwide collectors and some specialize in other areas like British Commonwealth.
The club meets twice a month, on the first and third Thursdays of each month. People start gathering at 6:30pm for swapping, circuit book review, socializing and fun. The meetings start at 7:30pm.
The club meets at two different locations:
Minneapolis Meetings – first Thursday of the month
Bryant Square Park Recreation Center
On W. 31st St, near Lake St and Lyndale Ave So.

We generally have an auction in one of our meetings, at least once each month. Each member is allowed to have up to eight(8) lots in the auction. Please describe then correctly and mount them on a sheet of paper approximately 8 1/2 x 11. Whenever possible please list Scott’s catalog number and value. Try to keep the lot of sufficient value so that $1.00 or more can be realized. On lots sold, you will receive 90% of the auction price, with the remaining 10% going to the club. Donation lots are gratefully accepted.
We have circuit book books available for your perusal at the start of each meeting. Many different interests are covered, you might even fill that gap in your collection that you have been searching for.
