- Sandwich Shop: a multi-layered plastic container with separate compartments for bread, meat, cheese, tomatoes, pickles, spread, etc. Keeps ingredients fresh until you're ready to eat. The disadvantage is you have to build your sandwich before you can eat it.
- Fly Vac: A battery-operated, hand-held vacuum that stuns flies with mothball vapor, then sweeps them up for disposal. Suggested for restaurants and commercial establishments where swatted fly carcasses might ruin the ambiance.
- Mirrored Oak Toilet Seat Lid: A mirror embedded into the top and/or inside of a toilet seat for guys who want to make sure they've zipped up when they're done.
- Opti-Cool Sunshades: A do-it-yourself sunglass kit that allows you to cut special UV-reducing vinyl cling film to the shape of your eyeglasses. Just stick the film on or peel it off as needed!

Stamps in unusual shapes are fun. My niece and nephew particularly like stamps sheets that are specially shaped to create a scene or mimic an animal shape. County Stamp Center offers several artfully crafted sealife stamps designed to make you and the children in your life smile.
A particular favorite is the beautifully-designed, dome-shaped souvenir sheet shown above featuring dolphins in multiple poses. The Pacific Explorer sheet, issued by Samoa at the 2005 World Stamp Expo, is only $5.03 at County Stamp Center. Click the link to order.
New Caledonia came up with this unique stamp design in 2004. The 4-stamp sheetlet commemorates sea turtles, mimicking their shape. Available from County Stamp Center for just $5.99, click the link to order.
This delightful whale sheet always makes my niece laugh. The whale seems to smile right back at you! Yours for only $4.88 at County Stamp Center, the whale sheet was issued by New Caledonia in 2004.

Americans love their pets. In honor of National Pet Appreciation Week, County Stamp Center calls your attention to this great Yorkshire Terrier sheetlet from Togo. Inset against a traditional city brownstone, this stamp is one of three charming sheetlets issued by Togo celebrating our love affair with cats and dogs.

From trains to space exploration, from the Olympics to Boy Scouts, from Yorkies to African wildlife, the African nation of Togo issued an eclectic mix of beautifully designed stamps from the 1960s to 1990s. County Stamp Center has recently expanded its listings of Togo mint sets from that era. Visit our website to view our complete Togo mint listings. The African locomotives commemorative set shown was issued in 1984 and sells for just $9.76 at County Stamp Center.
A tiny strip of land on Africa's west coast, Togo is a country of rolling savanna, lagoons and marshes which attract a great variety of wildlife. The area that is now Togo was part of the Slave Coast when the Portuguese exploited the populace in the 15th through 18th centuries. Briefly a German protectorate in the late 1800s, Togo was divided between France and Britain after World War I with the British half choosing annexation to Ghana. Togo gained independence from France in 1960. Primarily an agricultural state, Togo exports cocoa, coffee and cotton and is a major producer of phosphate. Its culture, wildlife, economy and people are reflected in the beautifully designed and colored commemorative stamps issued in the latter half of the 1900s -- a provocative addition to any collection.
