|Big Date Stamp, Cari-Jane Hakes|
I've never seen anything like it! So when I saw it in Oh Buoy's Etsy shop I knew it belonged, here, with me.

And just how beautiful are these numbers and letters? The colour and the cracked, perished surface. I hold it and wonder what the story is behind it. Did it belong to an Uber Librarian with giant books? Or a slightly neurotic office clerk who would wield this unwieldy date stamps on days when he felt no one was listening to him?

I may very well get a new band made by Blade Rubber to replace the missing 'year' loop and change it to something else. In the meantime, I think I'll just keep making up stories about its previous owners. Who do you think might have had reason to posses a date stamp the size of a dinner plate? And why did the date have to be writ so large?
