A CROWD of enthusiasts put their stamp on things when members of the Bundaberg Philatelic Society held their annual fair yesterday.

Society president Denise Dalziel said just under 100 people came through the door.

"We're happy with the crowd that came," she said.

Ms Dalziel said the stamp fair gave members of other clubs the chance to bring stamps they had for sale.

Dealers also travelled from Brisbane for the fair.

"It gives members the chance to source items they may not be able to get locally," Ms Dalziel said.

She said the club had even helped with the flood recovery.

"One of our members was helping clean a house and found some old stamp albums," she said.

"We were able to wash the stamps and restore them as best we could and give them back to the lady who owned them.

"They weren't in the mint condition they were when she last saw them, but at least she got them back."

The society, which was formed in 1967, has held a stamp fair every year since 1969.
