US Postage stamps are mini works of ART. They have been used to deliver news of events that impacted our lives since the day we were born. Loved ones have been notified of births, deaths, weddings, travels, birthdays, holiday wishes, you name it by simply placing a stamp on an envelope and dropping it in the mail. With the development of e-mail the postage stamp has begun to become a bit of an endangered piece of the cultural fabric which connects people. I can help you bring back that personal touch when sending your letters to loved ones. Vintage postage stamps will dress up your letters in so many lovely ways.

Contact me If you don't see a theme that you would like to use and I will work with you to design a custom combination of stamps that will closely match your desired theme. All of the stamps I sell in my store are valid for use as current postage for mailing.

Rich accidentally sent me the wrong stamps, instead of the Alamo stamps that I ordered. After I notified him, I didn't receive the correct stamps until one whole week later. He included a pre-addressed envelope for me to return the incorrect order, but I was still expected to pay for its postage. Beautiful stamps, but I feel like he handled this very poorly.

I am sending you a $5.00 refund to cover your inconvenience for paying postage for returning the 10c Independence Hall stamps sent to you instead of the correct item 9c Alamo stamps. I was away at that time on a buying trip and am training an assistant to fill orders in my place. I told them to send you a SASE envelope but it appears they didn't realize the second S stands for Stamped. That is my fault for using shorthand in my message to the assistant when they appear to not know all the abbreviations used in business. Sorry for all the trouble. Rich TreasureFox

This custom design was a big hit to the recipients who made a big fuss over how the vintage postage had really set the tone for this adventurous wedding. I love to find out how happy my designs make the brides I work with and add to their special day.
Back from a hugely successful buying trip of vintage postage stamps for my Etsy shop. Some of these sheets are over 70 years old and in awesome shape. Visit my etsy shop and check out my listings or request a custom order. Best prices on Etsy.
The stamp studio has been rearranged and enlarged to better handle my ever growing inventory of vintage postage stamps. Sales are way up this year so I couldn't delay the expansion any longer. Be on the lookout for several new listings in my shop soon.

About

Give your snail mail pizzazz with Vintage US Postage stamps.

I have always used vintage postage stamps when mailing letters because I'm a stamp collector and dealer. Recently one of my daughters suggested that I sell vintage postage stamps on Etsy by topic or theme for creative and artistic people to use for special mailings such as Weddings, Save the Dates, Birthdays, Christmas cards, Art Gallery exhibits, Sport events, and any number of other kinds of invitations to add that special touch so they stand out when received in the mail. I liked the idea since I'm a collector at heart and since I was a kid it was always fun to save the pretty stamps found on the home mail. I have a large selection of pre-packed combos with themed topics to choose from in my Etsy shop. If you would like a custom designed order for large mailings, just let me know what you have in mind and I will do my best to personally design combos that will fill your wish list.

My goal is to give creative individuals the opportunity to use "themed" topics displayed on vintage MINT unused US Postage stamps to personalize your letter, invitation or announcement. Say what you feel with stamps. Unused Mint stamps can also be used to make attractive jewelry items, scrap booking, or framed for presentation as a gift. Stamps are miniature works of art to be displayed creatively, the possibilities are up to you.

I have been a stamp dealer for nearly 40 years and have had the pleasure and privilege to help thousands of collectors build some of the nicest collections in the country.

Etsy now allows me to accept payment by credit card directly through Etsy. This is a great convenience for customers who don't have Paypal accounts.


FLORIDA residents are subject to state sales tax of 6.5% which will be added to your invoice.
Shipping
I do my best to keep shipping charges to a minimum while keeping it simple. For most orders there is a fixed rate which applies to the first item purchased and a small charge is added for additional items.

Other store items such as ceramics, vintage items, etc they have individual shipping prices that are based on the weight involved.

Your order will be shipped within 3 days of payment as a general rule but may take longer if I happen to be traveling which doesn't happen that often. If there is going to be a delay I will notify you. Custom orders will take longer if in the event I need to obtain stamps from other sources. I will keep in contact with you on the progress of custom orders and their expected shipping date.

Your order will be mailed to the mailing address provided to me by Etsy unless you request otherwise. Please be sure that the address provided by Etsy is your current address. Vintage postage stamps will be used to mail your order also.

Estimated Delivery Time: While your package will generally arrive much sooner, I allow the post office up to 2 weeks for Domestic First Class Mail delivery.

I have found over the last 5-7 years that 1st Class Mail takes longer than it used to as the Post Office has been closing down sorting centers across the country in an attempt to lower their expenses so it's not unusual for an order to take 7-10 days to be delivered especially if it's going cross country.

Tracking and/or Insurance: Optional. While unfortunate, mail does sometimes get lost or damaged in transit. Understand that I do not take responsibility for untracked or uninsured items once they are delivered to the Post Office. If you would like to pay the additional cost to have your order insured or tracked, please request that I add the tracking and/or insurance to your order BEFORE you check out. If you think your order is lost or damaged please send me a message and I will work out a replacement item with you at a reduced cost.

Priority and Express shipping via USPS: Available! Just convo me to let me know you would like your item shipped via USPS Priority or Express and I will adjust the shipping charge for your custom listing OR purchase the EXPRESS or PRIORITY Shipping Upgrade listings available in my shop. Enjoy your order Quicker!!
Refunds and Exchanges
Your satisfaction is guaranteed. I will accept returns postmarked within 21 days of your receipt of the item. Once I have received the returned item I will promptly refund the purchase price of your order only and not the shipping charge to you. Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are welcomed. If you have a theme you don't see in my shop, contact me and I will work with you to assemble a selection of stamps that will meet your needs. For those who need selections for wedding invitation with 2 ounce postage requirements of 71¢ currently, or 93¢ for 3 ounces or postcard rate of 35¢ contact me.

If you want stamps for artwork, jewelry, framing, etc that you need several copies of particular stamps contact me and we can work on what stamps are available to fill your needs. Cost and quantity can then be mutually determined. I will send you photos of stamps you can choose from to fit your needs and you can choose what you like.
