A few weeks ago our local Past Times shop sold many items at a reduced price. Past times is a UK retail chain selling vintage looking gifts influenced by different design periods. Among other reduced items they had this wooden letter rack from their Wit & Wisdom collection1. I bought it for £12.60 ($19.90, €14.20), the original price was ~ 50% higher.
Price: September 2010, exchange rates: October 2010
I would like to thank Henrik for the Stresemann and Sean for most of the rare pencils you can see in the photos.
Two less common items in this photo: ink from Bach’s Tinten and a Kronenheft notepad.
