Reader's Exchange: She's looking for leather tools and stamps

So many people find themselves learning new crafts or relearning old ones in their older years. That is what Joan Croteau of St. Petersburg would like to do. Years ago she did leather craft work, but she got busy raising a family, so she sold all of her leather tools and stamps. Now that she is disabled and homebound, Joan would like to get back into leather crafting again. She hopes someone out there has the tools and stamps she needs. If you have any of these items, they must be dropped off, as she cannot drive. Joan can be reached at (727) 217-0934.

Catherine Mitchell of Tampa has a number of ink cartridges from printers she no longer owns. The packages came from larger boxes, so they can't be returned to the store. The packets have not been opened. She has two Lexmark cartridges: color #33 and black #32. She doesn't remember the printer model, but you'll know if you use these. She also has these Brother ink cartridges: LC 51M magenta, LC 51BK black, LC 21Y yellow, LC 21C cyan and LC 21M magenta. If you are interested in these, they can be picked up from Catherine's home. She can be reached at (813) 237-3787.

Some clothing styles never go out of fashion! That is why Gloria Bruno of Largo is hoping that someone out there will have knitting patterns for ponchos and capes.

Thank you

DeDe VanBenthuysen wrote in back in November looking for copies of Reminisce magazine, a book called Travels With Charley and a 1971 St. Petersburg High School yearbook. DeDe would like to thank all of the people who responded to her, especially Carol Smith, Pat, Sharon and Joan, who supplied her with years of copies of Reminisce. She got a dozen calls regarding Travels With Charley. DeDe also received information on how she could obtain a copy of her yearbook. DeDe wishes to thank everyone for making her holiday!
