Really enjoyed receiving your cool art--thanks so much!  It will be a little while till I can reply because I'm in the middle of a few projects so please don't think I forgot.  My husband Dave (also on this site) liked your work so much he posted it on IOUMA Facebook.  I too am sad about Steve Dalachinsky--today, September 29th, is actually his birthday...

If you like to use old US postage on your mail art envelopes...

Posted on October 4, 2014 at 5:01pm 0 Comments

Karl Anderson's a good source who I've used for several orders over the past few years.

His current list and very detailed information on requirements for ordering from him are found at:

http://www.andersonstampandcoin.com/Pricelist.pdf

Currently, he is selling mint US 3-cent stamps from the 1940's-50's for very little over face value.
