The British Compact Collectors Society
Welcome to the world of vintage compact
& glamour collecting!
COVID-19 UPDATE -
The BCCS Committee is continuing
to implement measures in the current
membership year to compensate for the
cancellation of the Convention:
CONVENTION SPECIAL - Saturday
While this year's
Convention has sadly had to be
cancelled again, on the afternoon of
Saturday 9th October, when it would
have taken place, the Committee will
be organising some online talks
using Zoom. Further details will be
emailed to members.
The private Facebook Group
launched in early 2021 continues to be popular,
and currently has 75 members. It was set up in
order to provide information and encourage
discussion about compacts, especially for members
who are geographically distant. Compact themes are
continuing to be announced at the beginning of
every month as an activity for the group, and many
members are also posting about their collections
and latest purchases. Examples of recent monthly
themes were 'Beside The Seaside', 'The Sporting
Life', and 'Back To School'.
It is still hoped that more BCCS members will join the Group in 2021/22, even if they're not currently Facebook users (it is free, and there is no obligation to participate in anything else).
Members who renewed / joined in 2021 have been contacted by email to ask whether they would like to be included in a second annual BCCS Membership Directory. As last year, this will be produced as a booklet in electronic format, with maps, and will only be emailed to those members who opt in. Its aim is to facilitate networking and help members to reach out to others with similar collecting interests.
