This isn't exactly food-related, I know. But sometimes you've just got to share the love when you come across something so awesome! Dick Sheaff is an American who collects ephemera - old stamps, trade cards, tickets, post cards... The kind of stuff I gravitate toward whenever I'm antique shopping! 

I've posted a few of my favourite items from his website. So, if you're needing your daily fix of awesome, and you have a little bit of time on your hands, go and have a look.
