Re: On Newsstands Now!

I just bought my copy of Junk Beautiful last night...wow! Talk about right up my alley! My grandfather, who passed away last April at the age of 99, was a garbage man his entire life working life. I inherited a warehouse full of beautifully aged junk - amazing collection. So anyhow, I was flipping through the magazine and nearly fell off my chair when i saw the refrigerator magnets made from old game peices. Here's why...my very first task at my very first job (in 1974, when I was 13 years old) was to collate those game cards and put them into a plastic bag! my parents were partners in the company that manufactured that product, called 'Fraction Dominoes' and my father was a co-developer of that product. Thanks for the great magazine and especially for the opportunity to share with other junkers!
