I’ve been collecting postage stamps since I was in high school. My collection isn’t really that grand but I’ve accumulated quite a few stamps from the Philippines and from other countries and I’d like to share with you what I have collected starting with stamps from the Philippines.
I have a few different stamp varieties that include those definitive stamps, commemorative stamps, special stamps, and all those other stamps like bird stamps and some history stamp.
But honestly, I’m not a pro when it comes to collecting unlike those that are members of clubs like the Philippine Philately clubs. When I find any Phil Stamp or stamps from other countries, I immediately cut them from wherever they’re pasted and keep them.
When I was surfing online, I discovered that in celebration of Dr. Jose Rizal’s 150th birthday anniversary, a special stamp was created for this occasion. I would love to have that special Philippine stamp in my collection and I guess I’ll be going on a trip to the post office soon just to buy that stamp. I haven’t bought any 2011 stamps yet so this trip is something I’m looking forward.
I really don’t know what is it with stamps but I have always been fascinated by them. I’ve even asked my friends who are based in other countries to send me stamps from wherever they are just to keep my collection alive. Aside from that, I also joined this organization that swaps postcards so that I can also get stamps and postcards from different countries too. I’ll show you those postcards in another time.
But if you are interested to join and receive postcards (and hopefully swap stamps too), check out Postcrossing.com! You only have to spend for your stamps and postcards and the rest is history!
