I have a new obsession: old, unused stamps.
It all started when I ordered a Vintage Pen Pal Kit from Saturday Morning Vintage. The kit comes with old, unused postage! All of a sudden, a light went off and I dreamed of sending mail Weasley style.
My mom is a lover of estate sales and treasure hunts. She also loves a challenge, especially if one of her kids is asking. In less than a month, envelopes started arriving filled with old stamps. I love them!
Then she called me. I hadn’t used them yet. Apparently the big haul she got came from an old house that had a rat problem and I probably shouldn’t lick them. Noted mom, noted. I’m calling them the rat stamps now.
Regardless of provenance, I’m excited to start using them. I ordered a bunch of penny stamps from USPS and we’re all set! Long live snail mail.
