I've spent my spare time over the past two weeks cleaning out and looking at everything in a large showcase. Everything that makes a mark plus rulers, set squares, art equipment from a career in graphic design + sharpeners and rubbers.
Cleaning and repairing items once essential to my trade including boxes of rubber stamps and sets I've used making artist books and rubber stamp works.

I've gifted these and sent via registered post to her today - ENJOY!
