I did get a couple of pieces of ephemera, but before I get to that, here's what I wore.
Shirt: Ralph Lauren (here)
Vest: J. Crew (here)
Pants: J. Crew (here)
Shoes: Sperry A/Os (here)
Hat: Washington Post Digital freebie from when I used to be an advertiser
So, with that out of the way, here's what I bought for just a couple dollars.
Yep, a bunch of old paper. It's really cool though. First, the reason I was even looking at old paper is that whenever I sell something from my Etsy shop, I always throw a little something extra in the box. Lately it has been a vintage advertisement out of a women's magazine I bought that was falling apart. Some of the boxes I send out are small though so I wanted a few things that would be easier to tuck into small boxes. I got some pretty neat stuff too.
|A British clothing ration book from 1947 owned by an American diplomat.|
|A mid century brochure for Rockefeller Center.|
|A pocket hymnal from 1884.|
|A postcard from the War Department letting someone know their soldier had arrived somewhere safely.|
A truly odd assortment of stuff, but it made me happy and hopefully when someone in the future opens up a box from The Collector's Attic, it will make them happy too.
