Rare Item Monday
Let your flags fly! May we present to you for Rare Item Monday this Rare Black and Red Flag?
Flags were invented by Egyptians in 1000 BC. They were made of painted wood or metal used to identify troops or clans at a distance.
There’s even a way of communicating with flags called ‘semaphore’ (sem-a-for). A special flag is held in each hand and different positions of the arms indicate a letter of the alphabet. This was an especially effective way to share messages between ships.
Spring is right around the corner but it’s still a bit chilly. May we offer you this RARE DAMASK BLANKET to help keep you warm?
We have a big word for you to learn on this Rare Item Monday; FERROEQUINOLOGY (feh-ro-eh-quin-ol-o-jee). This, fellow Jammers, is the study of trains, specifically the STEAM engine. The steam engine is the basis of steampunk culture. Thus, to go along with the ferroequinology theme, today’s RARE ITEM is the BLACK STEAMPUNK MONOCLE.
