Postcrossing ID Stamp

In: Snail Mail + Postage

I love snail mail (no surprise, I am sure!) In the earlier part of this year… I joined a fun website called Postcrossing. If you are into snail mail, mail art, pen pals, etc at all… you may already have heard of Postcrossing. In fact, quite a few of my customers come to my shop […]

Tea Themed Snail Mail

USPS Muscle Car Stamps

In: Snail Mail + Postage

Oh my goodness… I am thoroughly impressed with the soon-to-be-released Limited Edition American Muscle Cars stamp previews! (I hope they’ll have a 60’s Corvette!) I had hoped there would be a 1960’s Corvette… but alas! It’s okay… I still can’t wait to pre-order! I also heard from the artist who created these beauties! Visit the […]
