Exclusive to All Nations

Collecting is like a box of chocolates, you don't know what you are going to get.

Richard Purdy opened his first chocolate shop, on Vancouver’s high end shopping mecca, Robson Street, in 1907. Purdy’s now has over 50 stores in British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario, often at the entrances to shopping malls. How often do collectors get to combine their love of chocolate and their love of covers?

Purdy's recently approached All Nations with an offer to buy the remaining limited supply of their 2007 Centennial Covers, which had quickly sold out at Canada Post. Order one here and read the newsletter here.

Store Hours:

  • Tuesday to Saturday 9:30 am to 5:30 pm and by appointment
