Blog > Collecting Magic: From Stamps to Wands


Remember back in July, when the Singapore Philatelic Museum asked everyone’s collaboration with Harry Potter postcards for their newest thematic exhibition? Mishelle Lim from the museum recently wrote back to let us know the responses to this call for postcards were stunning, and that they’ve received almost 100 beautiful postcards — including hand-made ones and some bearing Harry Potter stamps. Woohoo! Ten points to Gryffindor Postcrossing!

The museum is now busy replying to the submissions, but have sent back some photos of the exhibition which opened last month. Have a look:

Merlin’s beard… that looks amazing! We’re always in awe of SPM’s exhibitions — you can tell they work hard on all the details to really take the experience to the next level.

If you’re in the area or planning to visit Singapore in the next few months, “Collecting Magic: From Stamps to Wands” will be open until June 2017.

I was thrilled with my Harry Potter themed card back. I also have virtually all of the Harry Potter Lego Mini figures even though I am a young 62! I am sad I cannot visit the exhibition though but it looks simply MAGICAL.

Hi, I'm a huge Fan of Harry Potter and I remember the request for sending cards to this museum, back July. I send one, It's a handmade nice card and I hope that it is on display.
I have still a hope for a card in return......wait with me,
Deep in my heart I wish that I could see "Collecting Magic: From Stamps to Wands".
Greetings from Anneke.

Wow, the exhibition looks magical indeed! I didn't know you could send handmade cards, or I'd have sent one... I'll be on the lookout for next year's exhibition!
