COLLECTORS EXCHANGE/ORLANDO STAMP SHOP have survived the ravages of Irma. The store will re-open next week as soon as we have power back on.


Just a note to say that COLLECTORS EXCHANGE/ORLANDO STAMP SHOP can be your source for Stanley Gibbons products, including “One Country” catalogue – so much more comprehensive than Scott catalogs for the specialist. By purchasing your needs through us, you may avoid the trans-Atlantic frieght charges that can be so high.



The publication of the latest edition of this superb catalogue has been delayed. It is now due out by the middle of July. We understand that the reason for the delay is a major revision of the Machin and ‘Post&Go’ sections. We are excitedly waiting to see the results of the update of this area of the “best reference of British Stamps available on the market today”.

We hope to have copies available for the CHARPEX show at the end of July and also at the APS Richmond Exhibition. We will only have a limited quantity, so please pre-order to ensure you will have your copy. Call 407-620-0908 to reserve you copy.


Jean and I are excited to be once again attending NAPEX in Washington this weekend.

NAPEX is said by some to be the Premier Stamp Exhibition in the Nation. Others may disagree with this assessment but NAPEX is certainly right up there with the best.  If you are planning on coming, please drop by and say ‘Hello’.

We have selected some wonderful and scarce British Empire/Commonwealth items to bring with us. As always we will also have an assortment of our Wonderful World Wide Topicals for you to browse through.

All round it looks like a fun weekend – see you there!


We will not be open this coming week other than Tuesday and will remain closed until Thursday June 1st.

We are working to prepare for the maitland show which will be held on Saturday and Sunday June 3rd and 4th.


Jean and I spent a very pleasent weekend in Portland, Oregon attending their regional stamp exhibition. Good exhibits, slendid food, friendly people and a chance to buy a variety of items that we needed for our stock – our customers will be pleased.

We also discovered some wonderful locally created wines!!



Jean and I will be attending PIPEX next weekend in Portland, Oregon. Therefore the ORLANDO STAMP SHOP will not be open on Wednesday or Thursday, May 10 or 11. We will make an exception and be open Monday May 8 from +/- 9:30 until +/- 1:30. We will be open on the Tuesday, May 9 during our normal hours of 10 to 4. We expect to be back to normal during the following week, commencing with May 16. There is still much to do in the store but you are welcome to come and have a look round – maybe, just maybe, you will find that item that you have been searching for.


A big thanks to all who sent greetings on my special event.

Jean organized a surprise party in a beautiful house on the shores of Lake Ontario. It turned out to be a complete Latter family reunion (plus a few other folk). The high light as far as I was concerned was meeting my first great grandchild – Lillian- who has just turned 1 – a lot younger than I!!

Jean expended a lot of ingenuity, deviousness and energy, not to mention lots of $’s, in organising the BIRTHDAY BASH, and I am very grateful for all she did.

So again I thank each and everyone of you for making my 2017 birthday the bestest ever!


I am not a great fan of PRICE LISTS as they are virtually out of date by the time they are published. However a variety of our customers have asked us to develope such lists, and therefore TO HEAR IS TO OBEY! If you would like us to create a pricelist of your special interest, we will do our best. You only have to ask.

As you might expect, all items offered are “SUBJECT UNSOLD”. However to reduce risk of disappointment, you may phone or email us and we will hold an item for up to 2 weeks. Better still present us with CC information and we will attend to your needs right away.

If you would like a sampling of present pricelists, you have only to ask.
