Ephemera Giveaway

I'm going to start posting paper curiosities here that can be had for merely the price of an SASE.

Once I've scanned and blogged about an item, it's time to pass it on.

First this 1920s era real-photo flapper postcard. The subject is a real bobbed cutie wearing a nice top with ivory buttons and a cameo.

Next this vintage Sunshine Biscuits order sheet (makers of Hydrox, Cheez-its, etc) found in a first edition of the Kinsey report.

The back of the invoice bears this wacky note:
Dear Reader:

One that thing has slowed down, this book--or any other--will never serve as a rejuvenator. Let the dead rest in peace.

Verce of Hexperience

If you'd like either of these items (one per customer) send me an email. I'll provide contact info and you'll send me an SASE. I'll place the item in whatever envelope I receive so make sure you provide appropriate protection for the item and sufficient postage to cover the weight.
