This is the first 20 boxes of a series that I am doing in connection with "Friends Of Main Street". In my hometown
of Winsted, CT. It will be very easy to get the boxes however you may have to ask directions to find some businesses.There is no ink in any of the boxes, so be sure to bring your own. And please be discret when stamping in
and re-hiding the boxes (especially the boxes that are outdoors)--Thank_You
SO CHECK BACK OFTEN FOR MORE BOXES THAT WILL BE ADDED.
