Say what you feel with vintage postage stamps.

This selection is titled WORLD's FAIRS. Everyone likes to go to a fair. Whether it be your local fall festival, county or state's fair there's something exciting about going to the fair. These stamps were issued to commemorate the largest fairs of all: World's Fairs. The earliest Commemorative stamps were issued by the post office to be sold at World's Fairs held in Chicago, St. Louis, Buffalo, San Francisco and New York. They were sold as souvenirs and also to be used to mail postcards and letters from the fair to tell friends and relatives of the wonders they had seen there. They were only sold during the period that the fairs were open. They became very popular with collectors and helped increase the interest in collecting stamps.

You receive the following stamps:

5 20¢ Knoxville World's Fair (4 unique designs) issued in 1982
5 10¢ Expo '74 World's Fair stamp designed by Peter Max in 1974
5 6¢ Hemisfair '68 World's Fair stamp issued in 1971
5 5¢ New York World's Fair stamp issued in 1964
5 4¢ Seattle's World Fair Space Needle stamp issued in 1963
5 5¢ Circus Wagon stamp

You get enough stamps to mail 5 one ounce letters with 50¢ postage on each.

These are genuine, never before used postage stamps. All are gummed or self adhesive. Some are 40-50 years old or more. Your order will be mailed to you with vintage postage stamps on it for you to collect or use in an artistic way.

WOW WHAT A BONANZA! SO MUCH MORE THAN I WAS EXPECTING AND EVERYTHING IN MINT CONDITION. Peter Max is headed for the frame store and probably an homage to the World Fairs as well. Everything else will be tenderly loved, especially the bonus stamps on the envelope Thank you so much... I shall get all my future vintage stamps from you

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!!


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.
