Surfing the internet, finding cool new people

I was visiting ephemera (see side links) and found several other vintage collectors and started looking at their things.  Check out Tikiranch.  There is a cool collection of signage and other 60’s type collector items.  The SWAPATORIUM had the coolest 1960’s soap coupons!  I remember seeing these in my grandmothers kitchen drawer when I was small…I used to match them up in pairs, not knowing she had them sorted for usage.  She just liked to save them because she said having lived through the Great Depression when everything was rationed, she believed they would have a value later in life.   When she passed away, I forgot to look for them as there was other family living in the house and I did not want to rummage. 

I would love to find some of these…off to Ebay to feed my curiosity!
