Smiles & Smirks

Art with a measure of humour is required by Walmarth Corporation for its chain of supermarkets, located in the Queendom of Retailia and in Cascadia Artpost. Through this collaboration Cascadia Artpost and Mail Art Martha are continuing to give impulse to Trashpo, the artistic vision of Diane Keys.

‘Walmarth Corporation is an entertaining and witty parody of corporate, consumer culture. Cascadia Artpost’s painstaking realization of Mail Art Martha’s ideas through detailed, special effects style models makes Walmarth Corporation one of the crowning achievements of Trashpo in the half-decade that it has been producing a large quantity of art.’

In addition to Trashpo the Corporation has now expanded to include political satire, parody, comics, caricature and witty playfulness.
Your contribution is needed to fill the shelves.

Thank you! I had a bunny and the mask did  not save it from being chomped to bits!

Because of almost everything being shut down due to the pandemic, Vermina is doing some necessary grooming on Infecto at home, while Ali Kaht waits.

Do the banner walkers do a  half time high wire act like they do in the chandelier department at the Stupor Walmarth?

Walmarth Cascadia promotes weekend shopping with its "banner-walkers", who also pick up what they find for the store's "Catch of the Day" in-store bin.

Aha! Finally found the first "Covid" US stamp that arrived here, back in the summer, from Cascadia ArtPost, of course:

(couldn't find it earlier, thus I "scanned" one from USPS with scratched out "forever" :-)

Forever, forever, forever! 

'wish we had such nice circle stamps in the HELLenic Post :-)

But at least, for international mail, 20 grams is still "only" 1 euro IF it goes "B" rate , which we assume is on-foot? by slow boat? maybe a ferry to Italy and by truck to Europe, at least? Maybe "air mail" to Canada, and then by pony express to that country to the south. Real "snail mail"!

We do have a 'forever' in the form of 1st and 2nd class stamps. And you can use them on foreign mail at the current rate, with extras to make up the required value.
