A town named 'Stamps'

Did you know there is a town named Stamps in Arkansas?

It's not very big. Only 2,131 people according to the latest census.

Stamps was the childhood home of author Maya Angelou, and was depicted in her book, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

Anyone think of some other 'philatelic' town names - real or imaginary? I think there should be an Album, Alabama; Tongs, Tennessee; and Hinge, Hawaii.
