These are ads that have lost their way in my vast collection, orphans with great pedigrees. They are going fast. So let me know. No returns though you are free to give them to deserving strangers.

I'll take a new batch of that ol' "stuff", Dave!

They are real treasures!

Okay, I made a new blog about this but I thought I'd also renew this offer here. As a nascent hoarder I can't seem to throw away these old magazines but I would like to give them to good homes. The deal remains the same: I would like to be reimbursed for the postage which amounts to around $15-$20. I've sliced and diced the usable bits from several of the magazines which means "all killer, no filler." Listen to what master collagist Len Petermeister sez about these vital scraps of paper: "Wow. All I had to do was empty on the contents of one of Dave's All-Killer, No Filler Envelopes onto a piece of Bristol board and voila! I'm on my way to the Whitney." It's just that easy. Let me know.

Okay Toni and Martin have paid their tariffs. (Toni, you overpaid by nine bucks which I am donating the Old Dave's Fund, a non-profit that seeks to find gainful employment for old, bald white guys. Our coffers now boast $9 toward this worthy goal.) Thanks to all and I hope you find something of use in these packages. Most of the stuff I've sent can be viewed digitally at my flickr site if you're interested in old ads.

I'll settle for impeachment of the top three villains in this instance as well as poor ol' dead Al Haig.

Okay, great. That concludes this round of the grab bag giveaways.

Hello David, it seems the ephemera has gone missing but i have this wonderful bundle of papers in the corner of my rather messy room. Finals at the uni have me rather occupied and im waiting for a check. Will return postage shortly, thanks for your patience.
