Ye Olde Label Maker

As I keep emphasizing, it's spring, and with the season comes the requisite cleaning and organizing. Often, this organizational bent involves labeling, so here's a treat for your "everything is in its place, and has a name on it" type friends.

It's a genuine Dymo Printer! Remember these, from the 1970s? Shaped like a Star Trek phaser in all basic shade of avocado, these early label makers used rolls of thick plastic tape with a dial embosser. Trust me: those labels lasted for years. They will outlast cockroaches and nuclear winters. And now you can order the real McCoy for vintage style labeling. How excellent is that?

Find this Dymo in the rough at It'll make spring cleaning groovy.
