American Spoon Collectors [ASC] is a national and international organization which was founded in 1974. American Spoon Collectors, unlike regional spoon clubs, is the only organization which supports the souvenir spoon collecting hobby on a national and international level. ASC members include individuals not only from the United States and Canada but also from Australia, England, Africa, France, Israel and Japan.
For the past 35 years, Spooners Forum has been published monthly and has provided souvenir spoon collectors with much valuable information and many resources. Spooners Forum includes: feature articles on souvenir spoons; information about souvenir spoon collecting; latest information about spoon club meetings and activities; letters and comments from ASC members; timely editorials on spoon related subjects; Spoon Shop (for advertising, buying, selling, trading, listing wants); Spoon Sale Section in which ASC members consign spoons for sale. While the content of various issues will vary depending upon the month and information received, I am sure that you will continue to find Spooners Forum to be a premier newsletter.
Spooners Forum is devoted entirely to Souvenir Spoons and is eminently useful, as our members attest, for the Avid Collector, New Collector, Casual Aficionada & Aficionado and Antique Dealers. Periodically ASC also sponsors educational seminar programs and meetings to enhance the souvenir spoon collecting hobby: e.g. a meeting at the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine, a seminar devoted to the Gorham Archives at Brown University (Providence, RI) and an educational program featuring presentations on souvenir spoons and a hands-on seminar on collecting silver at Replacements Ltd. in Greensboro, NC. In 2009 a ASC meeting is in the planning stages — details to be announced in a forth-coming issue of Spooners Forum.
The annual membership in American Spoon Collectors includes a yearly subscription to Spooners Forum and the Mail Auction Catalog. The annual subscription rates are very modest. Please submit your subscription payment in a timely manner so that you will receive the next issue of Spooners Forum and the Mail Auction Catalog.
