2020 Souvenir Building Collectors Society Convention Postponed !

The 2020 Annual SBCS Convention scheduled for October 23-25 in Jackson, MS has been postponed until October 2021, exact dates TBD (to be determined).

Stay tuned for further information regarding the Convention and what plans are brewing to keep SBCS Members engaged with each other.  Fun events using new technology are in the works.

In the meantime there are the FaceBook Follies over on the SBCS Facebook page to keep us entertained.  They started with the ABCs and before the group got to Z(ed) the National Building Museum followed suit with an A-Z Tour of the David Weingarten Collection of 20th Century Buildings.  When it seemed the ABCs were exhausted new categories for sharing sprung up: Real buildings that look funny, Multiples, Masked Statues (Right On!), Postcards paired with their miniature buildings.

Take a trip over to Facebook and feast your jealous eyes on those “look but don’t touch” gems.
