Whenever Maurine and I travel someplace exotic we always try to find something very unique from that place to have in our home. We have a little wooden horse from Oman that is 350 years old-a toy from a bygone era. We have a number of copper pieces from Egyptian villages that add sparkle and richness to our home. We have hand-carved mahogany apples from the heart of Guatemala. These things have really made our house OUR home.
One of my favorite things we ever found was during the bicentennial celebration of Joseph Smith’s birth in Sharon, Vermont-the US Post Office issued a very-limited edition commemorative postmark to help remember this wonderful day. We were there for the celebration with President Gordon B. Hinckley and Elder M. Russell Ballard. Of course I took a lot of pictures and so I made four of these pictures into postcards, stamped them and boxed them up, then sent them to the Post Office to be postmarked with this Joseph Smith commemorative mark. A few weeks after I had this done, the postal service destroyed the die casts for the mark so that this would become a collector’s item.
For a few days, to get these sets to you for Father’s Day at a blow-out sale price, we are selling the entire set of four commemorative postcards AND the beautiful print for just $10.99!
These postcards, postmarked with the now-long-gone commemorative mark, are only available through Meridian and only in limited supply. And the sale price of $10.99 only lasts a few days.
The proceeds of these sales help Meridian to continue in its mission. Thanks for supporting Meridian. We appreciate you loyal readers so much!
