Mick’s Local Post issues its first local post stamp

There’s a new local post operating on the West Coast of the United States! Mick’s Local Post out of Portland, Oregon, recently released its very first stamp, a non-denominated issue captioned “Kirsten in KwaZulu-Natal, 2009.”

The proprietor, Mick T., writes that the stamp pictures his late wife, Kirsten. I think this is a lovely tribute, and a very appropriate subject for his first local post stamp.

Mike plans to issue more stamps in the future, and I’ll be looking forward to getting to share them here. Welcome to the local posting community, Mick!

Hi Kenneth. I think I will limit Mick's Private Post to my own mail for now, as I did not get a large number printed. But I'd love to send you a cover with one of them affixed, if you want it for your collection. Just shoot me an email ( with your address.
