This week's shop update was small, but mighty. Only four new products made their way into the shop, but each is a labor of love with months of searching and collecting involved.
My favorite addition was this Army Green Metal Box filled with a long list of vintage office supplies, including plenty of old airmail envelopes, Dennison labels, and a cool orange stapler. This metal box remained in my personal collection for many years, but I finally ran out of space for it. It's a heavy duty piece weighing in at over 6 pounds - a good piece for a vintage and/or industrial space.
Second runner up is this Gray Metal Box with a rainbow of vintage tins and boxes filled with coordinating vintage ephemera. This is another vintage box that was once in my personal collection. It is the perfect size to fill with papers, pencils, and embellishments and take on a trip so send out mail art or make a mini scrapbook while on the go. The unusual size holds a lot, but is still thin enough to easily slip into a backpack or other carry on luggage. And packed into all of the vintage tins and boxes is over 300 pieces of old paper - used and unused postage stamps, tickets, price tags, milk caps, and much more!
These two topped my favorites list, but the other two aren't too shabby either - a Blue Metal Box with a collection of red, white, and blue airmail finds, and a Creamy White Display Piece stacked with a set of vintage office supplies.
I'll be spending today gathering and cutting papers for May's Paper Parcel, but will be back tomorrow to reveal all of the goodies that were in last month's Paper Parcel. All subscriptions are currently sold out, but subscriptions beginning with June go on sale next week on May 1st!
