Last week I posted on my hobby dealing with genealogy. This week I want to share my interest and hobby in collection of commemorative envelopes.
I started with this hobby in 1979, when I was fourteen years old.
I followed the issues of the envelopes and cycled from Wonderboom to the city center in Pretoria to buy them.

I bought envelopes from all former TBVC states (Transkei, Bophuthatswana, Venda and Ciskei), South West Africa and South Africa.

Over and above the envelopes and the beautiful stamps, each envelope also have an insert which explains the topic depicted on the envelope.

Currently I have more than 100 of these envelopes and is very proud of them. I have posted many of them in some of my previous posts. Please have a look.

Cheers 🍻🍻🍻
I took the photos with my iPhone.

They are lovely! It's such a pity that today's documentation is so slap dash, nothing beautiful about it! Thank you for participating in the Hobby Hub challenge!

Wow, really interesting. That's cool that you have so many of them. My husband used to collect stamps, but when we moved he got rid of them. I think he did at least. Look like some cool stamps...and some older ones!
