I love october afternoon for how usable everything is, there's never a paper I don't know what to do with or a sticker that I can't think of a use for, I'm glad to see that that trend continues with this lovely collection.

I love it and thank you for the review. I love October Afternoons 5 & Dime collection. I am of the generation of 5 & Dime stores and it makes me yearn for the good ole days. Pop, penny candy, aprons, toys, post cards, you name it and the 5 & Dime had it. I remember the creaking wood floors and the parakeets that got out of their cages. Yep, October Afternoon did a great job on this collection. I love it!
