The Ephemera Society

Holy geeky heaven in a website! The Ephemera Society has all kinds of obscure ephemera listed on their site. The interesting junk, years gone by, is some fascinating, fascinating stuff if you are a geek like me:

I was thinking about court plaister because in Jane Austen's Emma, which I am reading right now, Harriet burns the bit she has that reminds her of Mr Elton. I didn't know exactly what court plaister was so I looked it up and that's how I came across this website. Fantastico!
