AB1At Brimfield last week I splurged on this little basket of vintage ink stamps – a collection of letters and numbers designed for use with ink pads.

I am not sure what made me buy this odd collection of stamps, but I am glad I did.  I just like the look of them and I know that I will find a use for them. 

It is interesting to note that this type of stamp – along with the professional printers’ stamps – have become quite popular with crafters and hobbyists in recent years.  So even if I decide not to use and/or keep them, I am sure I could re-sell these quite quickly at a fair price.

But I like the idea of stamping out a cool message using these stamps and a piece of old paper.
