I can't stand the thought of them being tossed out in the trash when someone doesn't reconize the people in them. So I buy them. Or take them gladly if someone wants to give them away. I always wonder who they are and what their story was. I make a lot of tags out of them and someone said "but you punched a hole in it" my answer "at least they are getting a new lease on life and aren't in the trash" and it goes with whatever it's on, so that's an added bonus. It all started when I got my Mom's albums and couldn't guess who some of the folks were. So after asking everyone I thought should know I just started using them.
Anyway I did it again today. I got a big box of old black and white photo's and I can hardly wait to sort through them. Did I need more? Don't I already have boxes full? Well.......... yes! But I always have room for more.
By the way the picture below is NOT mine. I wish it was I love it.
I will be having baged assortments for sale in the store when I can get them sorted and can bear to part with them. So if you like old photo's keep an eye out.
