July Fireworks


If you have not yet joined the KPS, consider joining this month and getting a shot at purchasing one of the great errors in US stamp production. A KPS Membership application is just a click away (below right  on this page).  While the KPS is currently not meeting face to face, members are still receiving our newsletter (KPS News) and have access to the KPS inventory of stamps which can be sold by mail.  Go to Monthly Sales and Special Programs under tab Market Place for more information and watch this page for Monthly Sales and Special Programs until (and after?) we can start meeting face-to-face.

Upcoming Events

Mar 22, 2020


Following from KPS President Brent Marquand, March 22, 2020:


Given the current coronavirus situation, all KPS meetings are canceled until further notice. Once the appropriate medical authorities have given an all-clear and we have clearance from TVUUC or other meeting sites, we will announce the resumption of our meeting schedule.  Until then, please stay safe at home.

The Knoxville Philatelic Society web page is designed to be a resource for stamp collectors in the Knoxville, Tennessee area. It contains information about local philatelic events, clubs, meetings, shows, and other fun stuff. Hopefully, stamp collectors from other regions will also find this site a useful and fun place to visit. Everyone is encouraged to submit content and suggestions. KPS is a member of the Southeast Federation of Stamp Clubs. Visit our website hosted with them at

We would greatly appreciate your feedback on the content of this site. Please let us know if you find any errors or inaccuracies. We would also like to include original content from the stamp collectors who would like to see their hard work displayed on the web. Therefore, if you have articles that you have written, exhibits you have created, presentations you have put together, or even short (less than 10 minutes) videos, we would love to give them a home on the web. Please provide your contact information so that we may give you credit for your work and direct any questions or comments to you.

If you have a stamp collection you wish to dispose of, KPS members can help.  Contact us for an appraisal, a purchase offer, or assistance with selling valuable properties through national dealers and auctions.
