The theme for today in Sunday Stamps
is Professions or Trades
I am sure somebody else is contributing with stamps from the same set. But I have received these recently, and they are the first ones I thought of:
These Brazilian stamps belong to the series Profissões
issued in 2005, 2006 and 2007, designed by Hector Consani.
The stamp Sapateiro
('Cobblers') and Costureira
('seamstresses') were issued in 2005, along with another one dedicated to Engraxates
('Bootblacks'): Empreendedores com raízes no passado
('occupations with roots on the past').
('Manicurist') was issued on 2006 along with a stamp I would like to receive: the Pipoqueiro
or `Popcorn seller'. I could not imagine a stamp dedicated to this profession!
And still in 2007 were issued the stamps of the Barbeiro
('Barber' and 'Carpenter').
