Thank you for another successful year..........
Novapex is Atlantic Canada's Premier Stamp Show and Exhibition. Held each year in the Halifax area by the Nova Scotia Stamp Club, anyone in Atlantic Canada who is a member of a recognized stamp club is welcome to apply to exhibit at the show. Dealers, both local and from away are invited, bringing their wares to expand and enhance your collections. This is a great opportunity to find out what your collection is worth or possibly to sell it back into the philatelic community. Look, Learn, Buy, Sell and have a good time!
