Sample Store X Celebrate the holidays at Philatelic Store @ GPO


This is the season to be jolly...fa la la la la.... Christmas is around the corner. What is a better way to celebrate this occasion than by gifting? Read this post and find out what are some of the hot-selling stuff which you can purchase for your lovely *philatelist friends from the Philatelic Store at GPO located at Paya Lebar. This store is operated and owned by Singpost.

*A Philatelist is one who collects or studies stamps.

The Philatelic Store @GPO Offers a comprehensive range of Singapore & Foreign Stamps, Thematic MyStamp, Souvenirs, and Philatelic Gifts that are available exclusively in-store tailored for the Philatelist at heart.

Join me as we take a mini tour around the store and find out what are the trending and interesting items which are available and you may purchase for our friend this Christmas.

As you enter the store you will spot a range of very popular character soft toys from Sanrio. These are put together to promote the Thematic MyStamp collection in collaboration with "Changi Mystical Garden with Sanrio Characters". Don't they look so cuddly and adorable? Spot Pompompurin, My Melody, Dear Daniel, Hello Kitty, Gudetama and more! I feel like bringing all of them home.

Changi Mystical Garden My Stamp Folder - $21.80 comes with free lanyard

Do you know that every item within the Philatelic Store marks a special moment in the Singapore’s history. The commemorative value and exquisite designs of the collections make them perfect for all occasions – as business gifts, or as cherished inclusions in every philatelist’s personal collection. Psst... these Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel Toys are exclusive to SingPost and available at a pre-order basis.

Walking in the shop somehow feels a little like exploring a mini philatelic museum with all the interesting post box, stamps and collectables.

For Lego lovers, they can purchase a pair of the Singpost Postman and Postwoman Mini Figurine Collection $28 each, $50 for a pair

For Foodies, check out the Local Delights or Traditional Biscuits Greeting Cards $8.90 each, $35.60 (for a set of 4 pieces). I featured a few pieces from the mixture of these 2 collections here.

As you know the government is working hard on clamping down the use of plastic bags. Why not get one of these big and spacious laminated bag at only $5. Furthermore, they feature a piece of history of our nation's iconic posting boxes.

They also come in the form of tea towels $12.90, cushion cover $19.90 and a durable canvas bag $15.90.

These small $23.90 and medium sized tote bag $28.90, pouches $14.90 with the symbolic posting box also make great gifts especially for working OLs (Office ladies), who can use them as a lunch bag/pouch. There I've just given you a great Christmas gift idea.

Looking for other more affordable gift items? Check out these Merlion Greeting post cards at $1.60 each, $5 for a pack of 5 post cards. Stamp booklet and stamp sheets from the merlion series are also available form $3 onwards.

How about having a piece of morning of Singapore in the form of a plastic folder , tote bag or postcard set?

OR a passport holder in the form of an envelop? Each of these item is available for sale at $5.

There are plenty of other stuffs available within the store at $5 - $10. I think you should drop by to have a look for yourself. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with the range of products which they have in store.

With Jessie at the iconic Post Box which is also the photo booth for the day. This colonial-era red pillar posting box has been restored and mail dropped into this posting box will be postmarked with a special date stamp in red ink.

Somehow I blend so well with the prop and looked as if I am one of them?
