Vintage stamp find #3 : I‘ve written to my grandma every week, for 17 years. She has dementia pretty badly now, and as my mom was cleaning out some of my grandma’s stuff, she found a box containing some of the letters I had written *years* ago. The letters themselves were cool, but I really enjoyed looking over all the old stamps again. There’s too many to post in one picture, so here’s the second set. More to come soon! There were lots! I thought you guys might enjoy them, too. If you’re interested in seeing the other sets, you can check them out on my feed. . . . . . #snailmail #aworldofsnailmail #worldofsnailmail #writemoreletters #sendmoreletters #snailmailrevival #snailmailrevolution #letters #postagestamps #postagestamp #envelopeart #envelopes #envelope #mail #letterwriter #writeletters #writemoremail #incomingmail #penpals #penfriend #penfriends #vintagestamps #vintagestamp #vintagepostagestamps #vintagelovestamps #oldstamps

Currently obsessing over vintage Christmas stamps. Many of our holiday card orders are hitting mailboxes this week and these stamps were the perfect extra touch to one of this year’s designs! The Christmas Wreath stamp shown here was actually the FIRST U.S. stamp specifically created with a Christmas theme! . . . Photo by @lisarobinphotography

• Country: Hungary • Year: 1959 • Series: Fairy Tales • Pictured: Image of three bears and a little girl, depicting the classic story “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”. • Extra Information: "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" (originally titled "The Story of the Three Bears") is a 19th-century fairy tale of which three versions exist. The original version of the tale tells of a badly-behaved old woman who enters the forest home of three bachelor bears whilst they are away. She sits in their chairs, eats some of their porridge, and sleeps in one of their beds. When the bears return and discover her, she wakes up, jumps out of the window, and is never seen again. The second version replaced the old woman with a little girl named Goldilocks, and the third and by far most well-known version replaced the original bear trio with Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear. • Face Value: 1 Ft - Hungarian Forint • Emission: Commemorative _____________________________________________________________ #Hungary #Hungarian #MagyarPosta #magyarország #1959 #1950s #goldilocksandthethreebears #TheStoryoftheThreeBears #Story #FairyTale #Culture #Bears #Girl #Goldilocks #ChildrensStory #Animals #Fauna #Wildlife #Child #HungarianForint #Commemorative #philately #philatelic #philategram #philatelist #stamp #stamps #postagestamps #stampcollection #stampcollecting

What in the world?... 😶 Apparently, three kisses (on both cheeks and the mouth) was a common way of greeting in Russia. A few highlights from old #Soviet postage stamp lots in the shop.
