I guess it's not very common these days to send actual mail with real stamps on them, but I still get them here at work. I used to save the stamps and send them to my best friend's dad in Italy, but he is very sick now (Alzheimer's), and he does not even remember his family, never mind stamps.

So...just wondering...anyone here collect them? Know someone who does? I have some really cool stamps from Ethiopia I would be happy to send free of charge, and keep on sending them in the future.

Thanks!

That's awesome of you! If you can't find a collector, perhaps you can find someone who would use them in collage work or something else crafty?

I would love to have them if someone hasn't already grabbed them. My grandma got me into stamp collecting when I was little, along with coin collecting, and it's one of the few things I still do.

Great!! They are still up for grabs. Just PM me with your address and I will send them to you. I'm happy to find a good home for them!
