Stamps are too cute to use!

I went to the post office yesterday to drop off some packages and I bought a sheet of stamps. Cashier - Showed me his selection of stamps (2 styles of the American Flag) Me - Do you have any "cute" stamps? Cashier - Um, like what are you interested in? Me - Hearts? Flowers? Anything... cute. Cashier - I don't think we have any cute stamps. Me - *Points to the sign* How about the cherry blossoms? Cashier - Okay! Gosh - men can't tell which stamps are cute! Ha I ended up purchasing this "Gifts of Friendship" stamp - featuring cherry blossoms! Instead of the regular book of 20 stamps, this one had only 12. Are you picky on the stamps you purchase? Or it doesn't bug you? I always like using girly/cute stamps! Photo belongs to me!

Those are cute cherry blossoms stamps! I'm not picky when it comes to stamps but those you just bought are indeed CUTE! I'll probably not use them and just keep it.

They were too cute to use but I ended up using them. There will be more designs/selections to pick from when I run out.

I do everything electronically, so no I am not picky with which stamps I use. Men are clueless on the cute stuff!

I do most things electronically also! But here/there bf/I have some stuff to mail - not too often do I buy stamps so these will last throughout the year. I do prefer the stamps to be cute if possible, if not its okay though hehe.

@infatuatedbby Then it is a very good value. Does your bf mind using the "cute" stamps?

If I am buying - I mind as well get a cute design! They have lots but the branch I visited didn't have a lot of styles on hand and they cost the same. Just as long as you don't buy the collector / unique ones. Hehe. But if I'm getting it from my parents (for free) they usually buy bulk ~ I don't mind, but I don't want to ask them unless I really need a stamp.

He could not see the different from nice cherry blossoms and flags. Those in your photos are cute.

Yes - the man couldn't. He probably thinks the flags are cuter but he has to think of a female prospective, lol.

@infatuatedbby I am sure that if there were stamps with pinup girls on them he would have found them "cute".

It's good that you can choose what types of stamps to buy. I can't be picky, as I don't think we have a choice here. Those are quite normal ones, and not cute at all. I'd like to have those beautiful stamps as well.

@infatuatedbby I loved cute stuffs when I was young too. Well, I still like them now, but perhaps not as much as I did. I prefer something that gives me more natural and peaceful feeling now.

Hehe. I have a few here/there but this entire sheet of 12 will last throughout the rest of the year. It was less than $6.

My parents buy bulk @ Costco and they only have the flag. I don't mind too ~ but I like buying cute patterns, I'm a sucker for cute packaging too!
