Going Postal

First off, here's the kimono I completed knitting yesterday. I love how it turned out. It's made with Malabrigo Rios superwash wool, in their Tormenta colorway. I was really iffy about the striping of the yarn, but it works overall and I like it. (Disregard the spots on the mirror on the right side of each photo!)

I had more luck again at last Sunday's flea market, another three boxes of vintage postal stuff.  That makes seven boxes total, although everything has been organized and sorted to where there's actually five boxes now.

I'm selling these vintage goods, as I mentioned previously. I'll only be listing things on Instagram -- in fact, having my first online live sale next Friday and Saturday at 5pm. However, as before, for those of you who might be interested in purchasing anything but you're not on IG, just email me and we'll take it from there. All sales are through PayPal. If you are on IG, find me @connieandbeegee.

Here's a list of what I'll be selling over time.  Eventually I'll get to most or all of it.
  • old holiday greeting postcards
  • old postal postcards (the kind you buy at the P.O.), going back to the 1890s, with various things on the back
  • old small business envelopes
  • old #10 regular-size business envelopes
  • unused old postal postcards
  • unused old postal envelopes
  • a few collections of old picture postcards, from World's Fairs/Expos, and a few site-specific collections from outside the U.S.
  • a small collection to/from soldiers from WWII
  • and more
The last photo is a bunch of other vintage stuff I got in August from a different vendor. All this stuff I'll use or give to penpals.

Life is good here, really good. It's fall already, but we never really had a summer. I wouldn't be surprised if all the smoke from wildfires in the upper atmosphere has impacted the weather this year.

And the wildfire report...soon as one huge one is contained, another huge one starts. Well over 1M acres has burned in California this year alone. Several other countries are having massive wildfires this year, as well.

The world is burning up, sadly. Who knows what's to come...I'm glad I wasn't born later than I was. I got to experience life on Earth before Earth was overrun with people and controlled by oligarchs and corporations.

Have a good month...and do email me if you're interested in any vintage postal goodies.

Your kimono is gorgeous Connie!
Glad for you to be happy & content.
what could be better?
Your stash is
very tempting, but at my age I must stop acquiring
and get busy purging.
Take care, good friend.

(I know the thinner version of Malabrigo yarn !)

I love your kimono, what a great job you did! I have had to put my knitting on hold, as I have developed very bad arthritis in my right hand and am unable to knit, so I love to see what others are doing. Good luck with your vintage post sale.

I like your Kimona. I don't knit but I do crochet. I have never crocheted a piece of clothes other than hats and scarves. Hope your sale goes great.
Have a good weekend.
xx, Carol

Big thumbs up on the sweater. The striping does work fine & is subtle. I'd steal it off you in a second!

Love that kimona! I'm happy that your summer has been a good one, especially with the devastating fires. Oh, and I loved my first day of issue envelopes! You have had great success with your flea market finds. :)

Beautiful kimono...color, texture styling and workmanship...again beautiful! Perfect for this new season! You have created an interesting summer with this knitting and collecting and selling!

That's a mean piece of knitting! How clever of you to finish it. I have several projects long ago abandoned and begun for 5 year old children now nearly 40!

Beautiful kimono Connie. I like the colour and the stripes. It is a sad world at the moment.
