Welcome to the Dallas-Park Cities Philatelic Society website! We are a stamp club serving collectors in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities. Membership is open to anyone of good character who is interested in stamps, and learning more about them.

Dallas logo Our meetings feature door prizes, show and tell sessions, auctions, a variety of stamp-related programs, member presentations, and guest speakers. In addition, members can take home on approval stamp collections and purchase individual stamps at substantial discounts from Scott catalogue value. Visitors are always welcome.

We meet at 7:30 p.m. at the Edgemere Retirement Community, 8523 Thackery Street, Dallas, TX, 75225 on the second and fourth Wednesdays January through October, the second Wednesday in November, and for a Holiday Dinner on the second Wednesday in December.
