I went to a local stamp show over the weekend. In my late 50's, I was one of the youngest people in the room. The dealers reported that not much was happening. This was a larger local show, but it has shrunk over the last decade. Saw one kid, who was avidly going through the stamps as the free table that the club runs.

I've started disposing of my dups to a charity. I was holding them for sales into strength if a revival happened, but I think we've passed some critical point and that revival won't happen. (Which probably means that the revival starts just as soon as I've gotten rid of the dups...)
