post No.107 Metered Postage

I can’t believe that the world/postal service actually operated at one time  with this amazing and innocent metered stamp art.    tootsieroll

They are awesome to say the least, and in many cases hilarious.  I found one Ad that states “August is Sandwich Time” and  another that says “Have You Seen Color TV?”   Thanks to Hi + Lo I dicovered  The Meter Stamp Society.

  1. wonderful! in love with vintage ephemera and such simple innocent type and advertising. thanks for the link. your shop looked so lovely over the holidays. congrats on the article bit! yes, ‘politeness’ should be added to everyone’s resolution list in ’09. or maybe we should all just drop by your gorgeous space!
