View Full Version : FREE TO GOOD HOME - papergoods

06-18-2009, 02:00 PM

I am in the middle of packing for a move and can’t take all of my papergoods with me. If you pay the postage, I’ll stuff as much as I can in a Flat Rate Priority Envelope. But you have to act fast! UPDATE: I'm here at least until the 30th of August.

Your package will include commercial art papers, handmade art papers, and vintage book pages. You can do one of the following: 1) Buy a prepaid/preaddressed Flat Rate Priority Envelope ($4.95) and send it to me; or 2) Buy a Flat Rate Priority Stamp ($4.95) and send it to me along with a self-addressed label [or if you’re a real thrill seeker you could… 3) send me five bucks and I’ll buy the stamp at the post office when it’s ready to mail.]

I’m certain I can fill fifteen Priority Envelopes/or Priority Boxes. When you sign up, tell me a few of your favorite colors next to your name and I’ll try to send you your wish because my papers are organized by color. And don't forget to get your stuff to me ASAP! Jackie Coyle – [PM for address.]

I goofed when I mentioned this... – if you do it this way, I may be able to fill a few Priority Flat Rate Small Boxes with stuff for some lucky ducks (the USPS website says it’s the same price) because I thought it was the chubby-squarish box but it's the video size box and I think more would fit into the envelope. However, there is another option 4) if you are able to print a prepaid/preaddressed priority label at home and send that to me I can fill a few of the chubby-squarish (ok it's not so squarish) [MEDIUM box 11" x 8.5" x 5.5" for $10.35] or even better because I can preserve larger pieces of paper the other [MEDIUM box 11-7/8" x 3-3/8" x 13-5/8" for $10.35] and maybe a few clipart books will find their way into those boxes...

Good to see you back, Jackie, and good luck with your move. I'm overstocked on paper and stuff, but I'm sure lots of people here will be happy to help you out.

06-18-2009, 06:18 PM
I'll claim your first spot! I love anything blue, pink, purple, all the jewel tones.

06-18-2009, 06:22 PM
I'd be interested!

I can send you 5 dollars.

Blues, greens, gray, browns, purples--anything in the cooler colors. But I also like bright things and interesting patterns, so yeah anything ;)

06-18-2009, 06:28 PM
This sounds fun just because. I have lots of bright papers I could use, blacks, grays, or earthy tones of browns, greens and blues. PM your addy please!

06-18-2009, 06:56 PM
Please sign me up. I guess any cheerful colors would be good, but not picky.Thank you.Will send prepaid/addressed envelope tomorrow.Thank you for this :jiggy

06-18-2009, 07:39 PM

06-18-2009, 10:19 PM
Tried to email, says your inbox is full!

06-19-2009, 07:47 AM
I have just contacted Jackie that she has 'takers' and that her inbox is full...I'm sure she will be back on AFA soon to straighten this out.

06-19-2009, 12:00 PM
This sounds good to me. I can send $5. I like bright colors.

06-19-2009, 03:06 PM
I have your address already. I can mail my $5 tomorrow---its in the envelope with a label.

06-19-2009, 04:02 PM
and thanks for passing on your address, as it is different than the one I have. Its good for the five dollars to get to the right place.

06-24-2009, 11:09 AM
I'm in for a medium box!

I am SO impressed not only by your generosity but also your amazing ability to handle all this mailing in the midst of preparing to move! I admire, envy, and thank you for this!

Ready for your PM; I love all things purple. blue, and red.

06-24-2009, 08:11 PM
My circle of friends doesn't have a creative bone in the bunch and I just can't stand to see it go to waste since I can't take it with me. Glad to pass it along. :~]

06-24-2009, 08:16 PM
i'll give this a whirl! i will mail out $5 on friday if you PM me your addy!

06-29-2009, 09:06 PM
Update on moving: I'll still be around up to the 8th at this point if anyone is still interested. The colored papers are going fast but still have lots of vintage book pages - business, accounting, algebra, seamanship, several dictionaries & encyclopedias, various history books with drawings and photos, quotation pages, emily post & vogue etiquette pages, atlas pages, and a few others...

06-29-2009, 09:19 PM
if you haven't filled my envie/box yet, i'd love to have some of those vintage pages...

06-29-2009, 09:31 PM
You're getting tons! And you have no preference on colors? Purple is all but gone.

06-29-2009, 09:41 PM
no preference for colors...i love them all! :))

07-03-2009, 06:49 PM
My big fat envelope came today! so many treasures!I looked thoughbut as I categorize all the papers to go in their new homes, I will find even more. I hope this swap-out of art materials is working for you becasue it sure worked out well for me!

07-03-2009, 11:08 PM
I loved the pink colors I received,they were wonderful.Thank you so much for making my day.

07-04-2009, 05:59 PM

07-07-2009, 11:41 AM
What a great mix of stuff!! Thank you, Thank you Jackie!! :)

Love the handmade and vintage stuff.

07-07-2009, 02:57 PM
Ohhh Wow There is so many wonderful goodies in this envelope! And there is enough bookpages and such that I can actually use them! I'm weird I tend hoard them when I only have one or two, afraid that after I use it I won't have it anymore!. I go through so much ink because I copy things to save the original. I love it!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

07-07-2009, 05:01 PM
oh my, got my package today...stuffed! love every bit of it! i'm like you linda, but now i feel like i can use it. there was some french text and my daughter was so proud of herself because she could actually read it! (she's a 2nd yr french student)
thanks so much!

07-08-2009, 03:50 PM
Wow! What a wealth of incredible goodies, Jackie! I am so grateful for your generousity and I remain awed by your ability to do all of this in the midst of preparing to move!

Best wishes for a smooth move. And watch out for all the good karma returns headed your way!

Thanks again!

07-09-2009, 06:07 PM
My move has been pushed back a little - looks like I'll be here for at least another week

07-09-2009, 08:23 PM
I hope this is not a bad thing?

07-09-2009, 09:17 PM
