Vintage Cigar Wrappers!

Recently went to a wonderful estate sale.  I am always fascinated at what people collect and I eventually get to purchase as a lover of someone else's things.  A strange cycle of retail...don't you think?

This latest find was cigar wrappers.  Growing up in a tobacco producing area I had an affection for all things tobacco (I know it is bad for you...but, it is packaged beautifully!)  This particular collector loved tobacco paper ephemera as well.  These 21" cigar wrappers were beautiful!  

I have no idea what I'm going to do with them...I see art in their future...but, I purchased so many I put a few in my etsy store today.   Just look and see printing at its finest.  Pretty!

I wish everyone took such pride in their packaging!!
