M is for Mammoth

When this fantastic piece arrived from Eric I knew exactly when it would be published - as part of the A-Z for Sunday Stamps.

The envelope is made from a paper bag from the now defunct grocery chain, Mammouth. Eric says the bags are somewhat of a collectors item now.

And he matched the stamps perfectly. They come from a 2008 set of Prehistoric Mammals.

For more stamps beginning with M, head over to Sunday Stamps.


  1. The mammoth stamp is exceptional and a pleasure to see.

  2. Coluche un humoriste français disait"Mammouth écrase les prix et Mamy écrase les prouts " .L'envoi d’Eric est vraiment bien et les timbres bien assortis !

  3. Beautiful Mammouth envelope and Mammouth stamp, and how coincidental that the Megaloceros stamp matches with this Sunday's theme, too!

    1. I didn't even notice that the other stamp began with M - thanks for being so observant.

  4. I can see why this would be a collectors item!
    I was watching a show on finding the wooly mammoth just this weekend.

  5. I remember the Mammouth stores, I always used to enjoy the sign when visiting France, no wonder they are collectors items now. Who does not love a woolly mammoth. Those are a fine pair of horns on the elk, a great pair of stamps.
