You can look at the following websites

www.virtualstampclub.com
www.askphil.org
www.stampshows.com

Each country has a Philatelic Society (hope I spelled it right). And Im sure they will have an office in major cities. Just check your Yellow Pages or some Directory Service and you can get their number. They will provide you with all information.

Remember Stamp Collection is an hobby, but making it as a profession means you have to have some good links, contacts, and not to mention funds to sponsor yourself till you find some organisation funding you.

All the Best…

P.S: I too was collecting stamps (I had 1000+) till my cousin swindled the whole collection when I had to leave the city for taking up a job elsewhere
