|A little bit of heaven in the Lower East Side in NYC --|
well, it does say God's Gifts on the awning, now doesn't it?
|Outside the shop is a table with rubber stamps to play with and try out before you even enter|
the world of stamps inside.
|Happily I had some postcards with me ready for mailing and got to stamp a few|
just to say I did.
|If you like stamps -- this is the place!|
We know Ms Red Letter Day loves her rubber stamps
and she got there first but I think Casey's is so great you will all
want to hear about it again!
And now I know where a certain person named Alice found the fabulous tiny
stamp she gave me a while back.
|You want ink? You got it!|
|The man himself -- John Casey!|
A pleasure to meet and talk to and he will help you out with anything you need.
Too bad I didn't get to stay for the after-party on St. Pat's -- maybe next time.
Custom stamps are available too.
|The eyes see all.|
Why didn't I get one of these eye stamps?
|Choosing is a little hard when you have have so many to choose from.|
|You can browse the delightful catalog. But you better bring CASH because if you want|
some of these fabulous stamps ---
you've got to pay cash.
|A member of the younger generation discovering the box of rubber stamps|
outside the shop.
|Yes, I did leave with a lighter wallet but at least rubber stamps are easy to bring|
back home to San Francisco.
If you visit, NYC and like rubber stamps, Casey's is the place to go --
(maybe you'll see the postcard I sent John on the wall there?)
CASEY RUBBER STAMPS
322 East 11th Street (between 1st & 2nd Ave)

Now I think I'm going to go play with my rubber stamps!
(Thanks to C.S. once again)
Awesome post!!!! I smiled the entire entry. I was born and raised on 109th street (between 1st & 2nd Ave)!!!!!! SqueelzReplyDelete
Thanks for posting this!!! NYC love!!!
NYC Love is right! And you are a native -- how cool! Thanks for commenting. I cannot wait to get back there.....Delete
After Jennie's post about this place, it was on my list, but now I want to move up our visit to the city to this month instead of sometime this summer! Good to know to bring cash, too, so thanks for that tip. :)ReplyDelete
I agree -- move your visit up to as-soon-as-possible! Hit Casey's and the flea market too. Have fun! And definitely bring cash for Casey's....Delete
Amazing! I love the table of stamps out front--that is SO fun! Adding Casey's to the NY list . . . thanks so much for the helpful info!Delete
I am sure your brought some cool stamps back to embellish your mail art with, looking forward to your outgoing! Places like that are addictive, I was in my local one today, but they don't have the edgy stamps Casey's has. xox CorrineReplyDelete
Corrine--what a place! Really fun to look at all those great stamps.Delete
We have nothing like this in SF. Will send you an embellished envelope soon! xo
I love the idea of custom rubber stamps, although with a selection like this I can't imagine you'd need anything else.ReplyDelete
I would really like to design my own stamp though.....Delete
that's mind-blowing. I don't think I could choose.ReplyDelete
I chose and now I want more.....Delete
Holy S$*%!!!!!! I am most definitely going to this place when time I visit New York. WOW. (Denise C)ReplyDelete
Trust me -- worth the trip!Delete
Hurray -- I went there when I was in NYC last month!ReplyDelete
Bet you had fun, didn't you? Wonder what stamps you bought...Delete
That store would be heaven! I would need a lot of money!!!!!! It would be great to go there and just get to play with some of the stamps! That might be one of the few reasons I would actually go to NYC!ReplyDelete
There are about 100 reasons I would go to NYC!ReplyDelete
I've been wondering if there were any mail art and such locations in NYC. I go there once a year to visit my folks. I'll have to visit Casey's next time. Thanks for sharing!Delete
Wow-zer! Love the look of this place. How wonderful to have a table of play right outside the front door to draw people in...brilliant. I have Casey's web site bookmarked to see if I can do some online shopping. He's got some amazing images!!ReplyDelete
I must say, I love your blog. What an inspiration for mail art. :-)ReplyDelete
Hannah--thanks for stopping by and are you still interested in mail art?Delete
Ummm...you were in NYC 3 weeks ago & I didn't know it?!?!? Shame!ReplyDelete
steph--oh so sorry but I'll be back you know......Delete
