Welcome ZombieKitty. It’s great to read a new story here. Your avatar caught my eye, because I love Hello Kitty. I recently acquired two used Hello Kitty postage stamps from Japan at a meeting of my local stamp club. One has a pink background with a pink bow by her ear and one has a blue background with a blue flower by her (his?) ear. The face value of each is 80 yen(?). I don’t know if there are any others in the series.
I gave myself a 60th birthday present which was to walk the Mackinac Bridge on Labor Day for the first time. Upon completion of the walk, I discovered that the USPS had a special cancellation station. I sent myself and some others a souvenir postcard using that special cancel. I hope to do the walk again when I’m 70.
Do you collect special cancels, as well as FDC’s? I have met a few stamp collectors from other countries online and have begun exchanging postcards with them. It’s fun choosing the stamps and designing a card.
Happy stamp collecting to all.
