Golden Gate Stamp Club meets on first and third Mondays of every month, 7:00pm - 8:30pm, at the Taraval Police Station Community Room (2345 24th Ave, San Francisco, CA). Meetings start with updates from members about all things stamps - shows, interesting articles, literature, etc., followed by a show-and-tell focused on a previously chosen subject. Last part of each meeting is an exchange of stamps and postal history brought in by members.
Our annual membership fee is $10 and collectors of all stripes and colors are welcome!
