It's school supply time again. One of my favorite times of the year. I have not started looking yet because stores are still setting up but here are some items from 2007 and 2008. I started this collection in 2007. I look for those items that could be considered a collectors item in the future or have a theme that I am interested in. I also look for those items that are marked "school packs" because they are only available at the start of the school year. I do not sell items from my collection but I do have to use sites like eBay because there is just no catalog that covers the older school supplies. Some of these items are never going to be a key part of my collection but that is part of the fun. These item pictured all have the year written on the back and except for the Pentel set all get put in a box. I use a sharpie stainless steel refillable marker for the job. Most of these items are inexpensive except for the Pentel set which was $13.00. My next 4 or 5 posts will all be old school supplies from years past. I am also looking forward to reviews from others on the new items for 2009.
