Being a lover of all things stationery and snail mail, I've always been attracted to the idea of using vintage postage. Sometimes an item arrives with the day's postal delivery decorated with multiple (and older) stamps and I can't help but to think, "this is going to be extra special." It's a good thing they don't mail my student loan statements like this...
Often times, people like to use vintage postage for special occasions like weddings, birth and moving announcements. There are thousands of stamp options but are mostly chosen by theme or color to coordinate with the event. But if you're like me and looking to use them on the everyday special person or occasion, it can be quite pricy to purchase vintage postage by the sheet. Insert our newest product here at TC&P: individual bags of curated vintage postage!
I've done all the hard work for you: I've scoured the Internet for stamps that "belong" together, shlepped out the cash, carefully ripped each and everyone out, and with the help of Taylor, packaged them oh-so-nicely. You're welcome.
Who might these vintage stamps be perfect for? Your space loving partner. Your parent that did something parent-like and deserves a hand written thank you. That college professor/mentor that you've lost contact with over the years.
Here are the details:
- 6 vintage "space" themed postage stamps, ranging in age from 1938-1978
- stamps total 49 cents, good for mailing one standard letter
More themes to come (hint hint the holidays) with the more stamps I acquire.
Happy writing! Jona
