join the co-op!





i found this little co-op stamp book in a old suitcase and thought the illustrations totally delightful! how sweet are the little people? the men with their parted hair? and the ladies with their funky 'dos? what a happy little find.

well clearly I am that much older than you ... cos I actually remember sticking the stamps in the book for my mum so she could buy my secondary school uniform!
