I received some nice cards and a good luck charm in the mail recently, right around when my store opened.

Here they are.

First the good luck charm from Barb.*

Thank you Barb and Pauline.

It was so sweet of you both to take the time to send them!

* this is a rare circa 1932 wood veneer premium that was given out along with Garbáty cigarettes.  The history of this long defunct cigarette manufacturer is tragic but interesting and important to remember. You can read about it here.
