Vintage Post Office Dept Buttons

By  | 

Pretty sweet, huh? These vintage Post Office Department buttons are circa 1940. The governmental Post Office Department eventually became the United States Postal Service in 1971, a (supposedly) fiscally independent agency. It hasn’t quite worked out that way, has it?

You can find lots of these on eBay and they are a great way to add a vintage touch to a new garment…

She is infinitely intrigued by the way experiences can slip from the ordinary to the extraordinary and she endeavors to design things that hold this possibility. Leafcutter Designs, her creative studio in Berkeley, CA, makes the world more playful and peaceful one little experience at a time.

    Oh – I get it now. It’s still a federal agency, it’s just fiscally independent. Thanks for letting me know!

    I found the buttons on eBay. There are tons of them.

    Where did you find these? (BTW, the USPS is still a federal agency.)
