"I like my 'junk' (read that EPHEMERA) a little older than that - perhaps pre-WWII, simply because advertisers employed artists to do there work rather than photographers. But HEY! The fun is in the finding, right!"
"Several pieces of paper (billhead and letterhead) that I foolishly thought I'd won - on eBay, of course, and two pieces that I thought were overpriced in an Antique Mall where I couldn't deal directly with the seller. Did I tell you I…"
"That's a fascinating story, Kat. I know at least one fellow in Northern Montana whose parents did the same thing when they homesteaded on 160 acres. They took apart their home in Wisconsin, marked and coded each piece of lumber and brick, and…"
Yes. I do. Ephemera, but he'll know where to send you for something besides paper. His name is Myles Haselhorst, the address is 2916 NE Alberta St., Suite B, phone: 503.805.5458. AMPERSAND Vintage Tell him I sent you.

I read your messages and we are not communicatiing on the same wave length. I mailed you that I had items 1 and 2, that you were interested in. Do you want me to send them to you? They are $11.00, including postage and shipping. Stan
Dave-- I have plenty of letterheads and bills that I can spare. I can scan you a few so you can tell me if they are similar to what you're looking for.
As for the postcards, I have some MT but most are printed. Have about 2 or 3 real photos. Also have some early U.S. postal cards from MT Territory. Stan
Hi Dave-- Saw your great artwork on the letterheads and was really taken aback. One of my many collections is illustrated and fancy letterheads and billheads. Also all kinds of vintage paper such as advertising covers, receipts, checks, menus, timetables, and postcards. Let me know if you're interested.
