About

Saving Real Mail, One Stamp at a Time

Dear Pen Pal,

Patrick my name is and I live in beautiful Minneapolis, Minnesota - a land of ten thousand lakes and ten million dreams.

My love for vintage postage is genetic. My grandfather Earl (a WWII Vet and small-town Iowa farmer) was an avid life-long stamp collector. His postage collection is vast, and I have followed in his footsteps by carefully curating a collection of my own.

But unlike Grandpa who kept his collection buried in thick catalogs and dusty boxes deep inside his study, I want to share my vintage stamps, dispatching them through the postal system and beyond, with your help. Grandpa explored the world through his stamps but I want to share my stamps with the world.

The internet, for all its efficiency and convenience, has made communication something you cannot touch, cling to, keep, and pass down. When is the last time you received a thoughtful hand-written letter, a tactile note or a party invitation in your physical mailbox?

Postage is a beautiful but dying art form. Our mailboxes have been relegated to the status of junk depositories and checking the mail has become a chore rather than the adventure it once was, fueled by anticipation. I want to help change all this in my own little way... and I'm thinking maybe you do too.

Regards,
Patrick

    Stamps are beautiful pieces of tiny art. But they're more... They're magical little tickets which allow your thoughts in physical form to fly to whomever on earth you choose. A card is a gift; the envelope it's wrapping. Make an impression.

Welcome to my postal shop. Thanks for having a look-see.

My love for vintage postage is probably genetic. My grandfather Earl (a WWII Vet and small-town Iowa farmer) was an avid life-long stamp collector. His postage collection is vast, and I have followed in his footsteps by carefully curating a collection of my own.

But unlike Grandpa who kept his collection buried in thick catalogs and dusty boxes deep inside his study, I want to share my vintage stamps, dispatching them through the postal system and beyond, with your help.

Edelweiss Post is a supporter of snail mail. We are a proud member of the mail art community and strong proponent of the burgeoning *real mail* renaissance. As such, we try to keep those unsightly digital bar codes to a minimum and we *never* use impersonal machine-printed address labels when shipping your orders to you.

We place great trust in our time-honored U.S. Postal System to deliver your order in 2-8 business days after mailing for flats and 3-10 business days for parcels, but if you need an order expedited, please message me and I will alter the listing to include faster delivery. ***Please notify me if you have a deadline approaching***

While most orders shipping outside of the US take approx 7-14 days to arrive, occasionally transit times can/may vary and are out of our control.

Any costs incurred above regular shipping will be the buyer`s responsibility.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you do not receive your purchased item within 10 days (or four weeks internationally) it is your responsibility to contact us.

If you feel the items you receive are not what you expected, you may return them in original condition within 10 days for a refund, minus shipping charges.

Please contact me before returning an item.

You will need to be responsible for the return shipping charges.

If an item is received damaged, please contact me so I can make arrangements to replace it for you. It will not leave my shop damaged and the Postal Service requires photos and proof of damage while in their care.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please contact me for custom orders! I would love to design some special postage arrangements just for you.
