Item DescriptionThe BUFFLEHEAD LOCAL POST really did start out as a working local post. Named after the Bufflehead Ducks that made the lake outside our studio their home, the BLP was created to carry my coworkers' mail to the Post Office which was several miles away.
The Local Post Collectors Society observes the final Monday of every January as 'National/World Local Post Day' and encourages all Local Post Postmasters to issue a stamp on that day. A theme is offered every year for the design of these stamps.
In 2007 the theme was "35th Anniversary of the Local Post Collectors Society", and the Bufflehead Local Post chose to issue a stamp showing the LPCS mascot, Lowell, the Local Post Owl, shaking hands with the BLP's Bufflehead duck mail carrier.
The cover, on a cream-colored envelope with the color corner card of the BLP, is franked with a single from the Gee's Bend Quilts issue and was postmarked on World Local Post Day at the Los Angeles Preuss Station . . . whose zip code is 900•35•! Similarly, the BLP stamp is cancelled with the BLP postmark of the same date.
