One More Time (West Coast)

Well I am at back in the running in my quest to own a letterpress. After one failed Ebay purchase last month, I have purchased a second Kelsey off Ebay. The first press I purchased, was dropped in transit, and arrived with pieces protruding out of the packaging. It was an extremely sad day for me. I am hoping for the best this time. I am at the mercy of UPS. The person I purchased my press from this time is bolting it to a board before shipping. His hobby is restoring these old presses, and he has more experience shipping them. Lesson learned: when buying a press, definitely get the shipping insurance (luckily I did).

Now to get ready to print... With Amy's advise, I am in the process of ordering the necessary items to print with. Next, I have to come up with a couple of designs, and order my boxcar base. I can't wait to start!

That press is sure purdy, Miss Laurie. I can't wait to see what you print first. May the shipping gods watch over it while it is in transit. :)

Why thanks there Missy!
