For the Hand of a Giant

My parents are the best thrifters. They find the best stuff for a fraction of the cost it would be online or here in my thrift stores. And they know me so well. Yesterday was my mom’s birthday, but I felt like it was MY Christmas because they had a bag of thrifted treats for me. It’s hard to play favorites, but this giant price stamp takes the cake! It’s about nine inches long and stamps numbers that are about one inch high.

Here it is next to my “normal-sized” date stamp. How fun would it be to stamp a zip code on a letter with this guy?

I’m in love. It still works, but even if it didn’t, I would still be in love.
