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.
