Dear friends, I bought at the auction a pack of old envelopes, with a picture, size 114x161 millimeters (4.5 x 6.3 inches), and I don't know how to use them in Mail Art. Maybe someone wants to receive such an envelope as a gift. In the future, you can make your collage on the reverse side of the envelope, or use it in some other way.

Ilya, they look very interesting, and I'm sure you have a story for them. If you're not going to use them (!!!), I would graciously receive one, please.

Hi! Those are neat! I would be interested in receiving such an envelope.  I am happy to send some mail art and something unique to you in return!

I like that envelope very much, would make me happy to receive one, Ilya.

Commemorative envelopes in the Space/Astronomy area are collectible as-is or as the basis for further embellishment.

Dear friends, thank you for your response. I didn’t expect my auction purchase to generate such a lively response! It's good. In that case, I will try to send you envelopes for Easter (they have postage stamps and cancellation; they can be saved as part of a philatelic collection or used for artwork).

In Russia, at flea markets and auctions, you can sometimes buy old rare things, and not very expensive; it's a paradox.

I’d like one of you have any left :).

Oh! Interesting dear, if you have 1+1 for me too, send them. I'll return one with my work. Thanks 


I would very much like one.  Will send art in return.  Thank you.

Hello, Dr. Jaspals, I sent you the mail envelopes a long time ago.

Did the post office deliver the envelopes ?
