That's right Dave. I was at Longs 5 years and they had gone through their
card section and had a huge box of envelopes to get rid of. Had a FREE sign
on them. I asked how many I could have and they said I could take the whole
thing if I wanted, because there was little interest in it. I did and have
about 10 left. I do make a lot of my envelopes, but sometimes you just want
a quick premade one.
