|There are lots of stamps for serious collectors.......|
There are books and books and books you can browse through and pick out any and all the stamps you want for ten cents a stamp.
|I honestly thought I'd died and gone to heaven.....well, almost heaven...it was a little bit of hell not being about to grab as many books as I could carry and run off with them...|
|I got a wonderful selection of stamps from Russian....|
|I love Postage Due stamps, don't you? WHY didn't I get these????|
|Who do we have here?|
Miss Polly -- I know some of you you trade mail art with her. Doesn't she look happy?
There was a whole lot of swooning going on....
|LOTS of stamp head potential in those albums too.|
|And look -- is this the old way of what we all hate? The black Sharpie cancellation?|
|We were all invited to add a stamp to the wall to mark our visit.|
|By this time I was planning on ditching my plane ticket home and renting a car....|
|There was a teeny bit of competition over postal themed stamps. Niko was there to break up any fights.|
|But, no worries, we all left smiling and very happy with out stamp treasures.|

Thanks to my Portland mail art pals for arranging this wonderful visit and special thanks to Niko for unlocking the doors for us on his day off.
Here's the link to the Uptown Stamp Shop website
Looking at it will make you crazy. Maybe you better wait till you are heading up to Portland.
And you KNOW I will be heading back up to PDX at the first chance I get.
Anyone want to meet me there?
