What a find! At a group yard sale. A box full of 100% wool roving. I have been making felted wool beads using the needle method. It is relaxing but not quite sure what I will do with these beads.
I have been taking a break from online selling. Actually I am just looking for more new interesting postcards. I just may purchase some Christmas (mainly Santa) or Halloween postcards if the price is right. Meanwhile I just stab away with my felting needle. Did I say relaxing? Maybe its out of frustration. Not really.

This cabinet card photo was probably taken in the late 1800s in Milwaukee Wisconsin.

When traveling as a kid I always noticed the advertisement bumper tie ons for cars stating you visited Trees of Mystery or Shipwreck (Eureka CA) or Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz California. We never stopped at any as my parents would mumble "Its just a tourist trap." As an adult I finally visited Trees of Mystery and they were not so mysterious.
Now you see bumper stickers maybe a paper placemat or two still exist. I expect the cars that had these -bumper tie -ons also carried those bumper water bags (burlap).
I will be listing these on ebay eventually.

Large Letter Postcards are very collectible. They usually add the words Greetings from.....This particular postcard is GREETINGS FROM RICHMOND VIRGINIA. This style of postcard usually has mini views within each letter. Often the state flower and capitol building is pictured. One can find Large Letter postcards with City Names, Military bases, National Parks, the 50 States and special highways like Route 66. Many are of the linen style. One can still find modern chrome postcards with the Large Letter Style
