I have to admit that I usually just trim the stamp off any nonprofit mailing that passes through my mailbox rather than saving the entire cover. This cover I received from the Rainforest Alliance this week is too attractive to chop up, though!
Does anybody else have "pretty" junk mail in their collection? Keep in mind that the illustrated advertising covers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries were sort of the "junk mail" of their time, so if you have those, share them, too!
Yes, Philatelius, that`s a gorgeous cover and well worth keeping! If nobody had thought to keep those illustrated advertising covers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, we wouldn`t have them now!
