New Vintage Stationery

vintage souvenir stationery, Abraham Lincoln and YellowstoneMy parents came up for a visit this weekend and they brought me a few vintage treats including these fantastic old souvenir stationery sets. The Yellowstone is almost full but sadly the Abraham Lincoln one has one sheet left of each design. vintage souvenir stationery, Abraham Lincoln and Yellowstone vintage souvenir stationery, Abraham Lincoln and Yellowstone vintage souvenir stationery, Abraham Lincoln and YellowstoneI’ve never been to Yellowstone, so I’d feel like a cheater using this stationery, but I think using it for a nature lover would be acceptable, right? (This stationery seems like a good enough reason as any to bump Yellowstone up on my travel wish list.)vintage souvenir stationery, Abraham Lincoln and Yellowstone vintage souvenir stationery, Abraham Lincoln and Yellowstone vintage souvenir stationery, Abraham Lincoln and Yellowstone vintage souvenir stationery, Abraham Lincoln and Yellowstone vintage souvenir stationery, Abraham Lincoln and YellowstoneI have been to Springfield, the state capitol of Illinois, several times so these Lincoln landmarks are all familiar old friends from school trips and family trips of my childhood. I think every child who grew up in Illinois has rubbed Lincoln’s nose at least once. Since there’s only one sheet left of each of these designs, I probably won’t be writing letters on this stationery, but maybe I could use them in a mini-scrapbook of my next trip to Springfield? (First I have to get Naoto on board with a mini road trip!)

Have you seen any souvenir stationery lately? It seems like the best kinds of souvenirs (stationery, handkerchiefs, plates) are all things of things of the past now.

    What fantastic souvenir stationery. These days, it’s tough to even find postcards at tourist sites. I’d be in heaven if they still sold full stationery pads.

    I think I’ve only seen souvenir stationery once, but not anymore. Like Lisa said, it’s hard to even find postcards now (not impossible, but definitely harder).
