What would be in your Mystery Grab Bag?

Posted on August 4, 2022 at 7:21am 4 Comments

This seemed to be a thing back in the day. Mine would have - a small piece of string, a badge of some kind, a cut out , a tiny wee pig, a magic ring, the vanishing nose trick, half a Spondoolick, a whirling stodge, chalky ciggies, half a button, collectors card of Mr. Turnip, a list of friends, a pulling face, plastic pips, a sailor's woggle, a knitted…

Hi Michael,  I'd like to send you some mail (whether it is mail ART or not is up to you! ... ha!)  Don't see your mailing address on your profile.  Have sent you a request to be a friend also.  Thanks!

Hi Michael, I contacted the Special Collections department about it recently - but they are not open so I haven't 'seen' any of it yet. Another online avenue of exploration for me to follow up at the moment - I am stumbling along. I am very intrigued by the history and development of mail art. I didn't really know anything about it until I stumbled into it as a result of these lockdowns. It's one of those, 'curious things'.

The emails were empty appart from a link. Also they say to come from Yahoo but the wastedpapiers address said 'damimas.com' All very strange.
I do not want to write to your Yahoo address in case it is compromised.

Michael Good morning.
John has received two strange emails apparently from you . Their Yahoo adresses are wastedpapierscand wastedpapiersv
Did you send them? This is also strange as you and I have been recently communicating via Protonmail which is very safe. It is free with no ads. I do not use Yahoo anymore it drove me crazy with ads.
I hope your email has not been hacked

I love that orange dog!

I am also enjoying self isolation, we are taking it very seriously and started a week before the official date.

But I still have that I-cannot-cope-feeling. To think that some of my non-mail artists friends are bored. What is that?  Do you know?

This is for you, from Retailia with love.
