Our retail store, Chris Green Stamps, is one of Canada’s few remaining bricks-and-mortar stamp shops. Located in central Ottawa’s historic Glebe neighbourhood, only blocks from Lansdowne Park and the famous Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the area is home to many of the city’s most popular boutiques and restaurants.
Our shop is a friendly philatelic home-away-from-home for the neophyte to advanced collector. In addition to an in-depth worldwide philatelic stock, we carry a varied selection of supplies from Lighthouse, Unitrade and Canadian Wholesale Supply, and can often find those elusive album supplements or special-request items.
Free customer parking is available in the adjacent lot on a first-come, first-served basis. Other abundant parking surrounds.
