Item details

This selection is titled: WASHINGTON DC. The US Constitution called for the creation of a National Capitol for the United States. The site selected was on the banks of the Potomac River. Land from Maryland and Virginia were ceded to create the District of Columbia as it was refered to. George Washington called for a design of the city that would make it an equal of any of the great cities of Europe. The design featured broad streets and avenues radiating out from rectangles, providing room for open space and landscaping. The Capital, President's Residence (White House) and the Treasury were the early Official buildings constructed in the Nation's Capital.

Use these themed Unused vintage US stamps for postage on your letters, birthday cards, wedding and party invitations or any special mailings. They will instantly catch the eye of the receiver who will likely save them to collect. These MINT unused stamps have all kinds of uses for Crafters too. Say what you feel with stamps.

All of the stamps in my listings are valid for use as current postage for mailing.

I do my best to keep shipping charges to a minimum while keeping it simple. For most orders there is a fixed rate which applies to the first item purchased and a small charge is added for additional items.

Other store items such as ceramics, vintage items, etc they have individual shipping prices that are based on the weight involved.

Your order will be shipped within 3 days of payment as a general rule but may take longer if I happen to be traveling which doesn't happen that often. If there is going to be a delay I will notify you. Custom orders will take longer if in the event I need to obtain stamps from other sources. I will keep in contact with you on the progress of custom orders and their expected shipping date.

Your order will be mailed to the mailing address provided to me by Etsy unless you request otherwise. Please be sure that the address provided by Etsy is your current address. Vintage postage stamps will be used to mail your order also.

Estimated Delivery Time: While your package will generally arrive much sooner, I allow the post office up to 2 weeks for Domestic First Class Mail delivery.

I have found over the last 5-7 years that 1st Class Mail takes longer than it used to as the Post Office has been closing down sorting centers across the country in an attempt to lower their expenses so it's not unusual for an order to take 7-10 days to be delivered especially if it's going cross country.

Tracking and/or Insurance: Optional. While unfortunate, mail does sometimes get lost or damaged in transit. Understand that I do not take responsibility for untracked or uninsured items once they are delivered to the Post Office. If you would like to pay the additional cost to have your order insured or tracked, please request that I add the tracking and/or insurance to your order BEFORE you check out. If you think your order is lost or damaged please send me a message and I will work out a replacement item with you at a reduced cost.

Priority and Express shipping via USPS: Available! Just convo me to let me know you would like your item shipped via USPS Priority or Express and I will adjust the shipping charge for your custom listing OR purchase the EXPRESS or PRIORITY Shipping Upgrade listings available in my shop. Enjoy your order Quicker!!


Payments

I accept Credit Cards through direct checkout, Paypal, personal checks, and money orders for payment. Payment is expected within 7 days of placing your order. If for some reason there is a need for delay please contact me. If I don't hear from you or receive payment within 7 days your order will be canceled.

Etsy now allows me to accept payment by credit card directly through Etsy. This is a great convenience for customers who don't have Paypal accounts.
