First Flight

At the monthly flea market last weekend, I got another two boxes of vintage envelopes. And hopefully even more at the September market.

So I started selling them, primarily the First Flight Airmail envelopes I got on my original score in July. I'm selling them through Instagram only at this point, have only listed airmail envelopes there thus far.

Most of what I have left at this point are business reply-type envelopes, from the 1900s through the 1960s, the earlier ones with handwritten addresses.  Someone saved every envelope they got with a payment of some sort in it.  MANY envelopes to several banks, a dairy, a chocolate factory, a manufacturing outfit, an outdoor-type magazine from back then.

I am doing "deals" for pals who want a bunch of envelopes. So if you're one of those folks, email me and let's talk. 

Life is otherwise lovely and I'm happy as a clam. Our weather has been overcast/foggy a lot, with mostly sunny afternoons. More like spring weather than our typical summer.  But it's early days yet, and we could get an Indian Summer.  Although there's a touch of autumn in the air already.

Hope you're enjoying your summer.  xx

You sound like you are in a good place. I don't know where you live, but in the Midwest on the south east tip of Lake Michigan we are having very hot and humid weather and lots of rain. The sunny days we do have are a bit overcast due to smoke from the fires out west. Makes for wonderful sunsets though.
xx, Carol

I wish we could feel a touch of autumn in the air, but must be grateful that we have not reached 100 since July. June and July were 100+ days with high humidity, so I'm not going to complain. Glad you are still feeling good and enjoy enjoying your summer!

I am so pleased that you are dealing. Can't wait for my "box" to arrive. Mailed the check yesterday. :-)
