However today I got RAK'D a Random Act of Kindness. Imagine my surprise when I see the big envelope in my mailbox from my Birthday buddy, Angie Hall Haviland.
More like my much younger little sister who just happens to have the same birthday as me. Birthday, not Birth year. I'm like the much older brother..... Anyway.....

In the box was several wooden mounted stamps along with a complete block alphabet, some All Night Media stamps, a set of All Night Media color brushes, an All Night Media idea booklet, 2 sets of insect stamps, a rainbow Colorbox stamp pad along with 2 unopened Colorbox black pads. Some kind of deal huh?
Next I found some vintage unused cork lined bottle caps. Check out the patina that's already on these. The box had 86 caps all for $3.00!!
At another stop I got a bag full of vintage ephemera all for a Buck!!!
Just look at some of these items. I got ticket stubs from the 40's, a blue ribbon from 1937, old travel pamphlets, Christmas cards, Airline ads, calenders, even some old Blue Horse images from the old school paper packs. Too Cool!!
At several other stops I picked up an item here and and item there that can be seen in the next photo.As you can see I got an unused vintage Crown stamper that was most likely made for a bank or an accounting firm for it has mostly numerical images for 2 dollars. A Bingo game with cards and makers for a quarter and something I had never seen before a printing kit that has two handles with two different sets of fonts that you can use to spell out whatever message you like for only a buck!! Had to have it. LOL
