The Antique Trader has my 'Letter to the Editor' up online, and it will run in the print edition, too. I wrote about the fun of finding my ancestor's image on an antique cigar box label.
The letter is basically an excerpt from my recent GREEN HEIRS blog post, that I sent in in reponse to their request for "Do you collect family related items?" stories.
I am glad they are running my little story. I hope it'll spur a little interest in:
- Joining the GREEN HEIRS conversation -or-
- Finding out more about CIGAR LABEL COLLECTING -or-
- Finding out more about Charlotte Cushman on my Mom's theater history blog, STAGE WHISPERS.
- Looking for vintage goodies with your family's name.
Oh, heck -- any reason to collect antiques is fine with me!
