Retrospective 4 - Classified Ad (Mailart 365 #215)

After 2 weeks of waiting for REAL post to come in, I took out an ad on an online classified ads site that's really popular here in London called Gumtree.

 

I decided that if I couldn't get the friends I know to send me post, then I just needed to make new friends.

 

At that time, Facebook had just set itself so that all profiles were publicly viewable for the first time (my idea actually preceded theirs but I'm not going to pull Zuck up about it) so the timing was just perfect for an ad like this.

 

I saved the original wording in an email and the wording you are reading are as close to the words as I could make them so that they still made sense today and didn't embarrass me too much (another early version of the ad can be seen on my blog.

 

This is being sent in to plot 45 today.

 

And in other plot 45 related news, thanks to you lot, my wonderful penpals and reader, plot 45 has outgrown the miniscule foot square cage they've given me, not once but TWICE! Where before the plot was housed in the main gallery with the other 100 plot, we now reside upstairs in a gallery on our own!

 

Keep em coming and I'll keep the my REAL wall retrospective coming from here!
