The bourse (laid out in the final floor plan below) is located in the brightly lit 9000-square-foot Graydon Ballroom at the popular four-star Hilton Mississauga on 6750 Mississauga Rd. in Mississauga, Ont. In addition to offering a smorgasbord of material on the bourse, our dealers always offer appraisals of show-goers’ material. Be sure to take advantage of this great opportunity at this September’s show!

Now heading towards retirement, Beddows is “really excited to re-engage in something that I’ve always loved.” As a dealer, he specializes in British North America, Canada and other Commonwealth countries plus “better” singles and collections and some U.S. material. “I have a decent selection of nice used early singles and some nice Canada collections,” he said, adding he was also a collector in the past but is unsure if that will continue in earnest. “My father always said, ‘If you’re a dealer, everything has to be for sale. You can’t be a collector if you’re a dealer because all you’re doing is feeding your habit,'” said Beddows, who added he has a comprehensive collection of Prince Edward Island he might sell. The two things he loves most about the hobby are the people – and their camaraderie – plus the opportunity for surprises. “Every time you turn a page, there may be a fabulous surprise,” he said. “I love the fact this is a place where your reputation is your business. That reputation is your introduction and brings you into a community of like-minded people who speak the same language and share a love of history and a love of knowledge. I really enjoy the people I meet in this business, and I always have.”
