Comment: Gabi! the variety of ephemera you send continues to amaze me! Those checks are crazy! There's lots of thrift and antique stores around here, but none have any ephemera. . . . Sadly, I can't read other peoples letters. It's so interesting when you know that is how people primarily communicated. Thanks again for the great swap and hosting this genuine ephemera swaps!
