PHILAS House Open Days

Days to share in our collections and passions, and to grow them further.

What happens at Open Days

Open Days are held three times each year - usually on the third Saturday of February, June and October, from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.

Members of collectors' clubs affiliated to Philas can bring Lots for sale-by-tender (minimum reserve $5.00). Submit your Lots to the organisers before 11.00 am.

Each Open Day features:

  • Stamp dealers
  • Stamp club circuit books
  • Sale-by-tender
  • Mini Auction at 2:30pm (viewing ceases at 2:00pm) - no buyers commission
  • Stamp collecting and exhibiting advice
  • Philas Library is open
  • Free sample bag for Children
  • Light refreshments can be purchased - Sandwiches, Tea, Coffee & Soft Drinks

The Open Days are timed to occur about three weeks before a Philas Auction on the second Saturday of the following month.

Special activities featured on the Open Days are:

  • Displays arranged by the PDC in February
  • Displays by members of one affiliated club in June
  • Inter-clubs competition in October*

   * In October, three members from each of ten clubs display 8 album pages each. The winning club is decided by popular vote of visitors to the Open Day.
