Donate Your Typographic Treasures to SOTA’s New Fundraiser

Written by Tiffany Wardle de Sousa on July 20, 2006

Instead of holding a traditional-style auction at TypeCon2006, SOTA is planning a unique area in the marketplace where rare and valuable collectibles can be found. A place where your inner treasure-seeker can fondle and possess that special piece of typographic history. A place to find a little something for yourself, or a gift for that very special type geek in your life.

If you have any typographic trinkets, knickknacks, bibelots, ornaments, baubles, objet d’art, collector’s items, rarities, curiosities, oddities, kickshaws, or tchotchkes that you’re ready to part with, donate them to our Typographic Cabinet of Curiosities and help us raise money for SOTA’s educational activities. It’s for a good cause, you can share your exceptional taste with other type fiends, and you can clear space on your shelf so you can buy new stuff.

Since SOTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your donations are tax-deductible, too!

Please email Tiffany Wardle at typegirl [at], subject line “My Typographic Treasure,” with the following info:

Item name and description
Estimated value
Exciting sales blurb or personal anecdote about the item

If you are attending TypeCon, you may bring your donation with you and drop it off at the registration table at the Hyatt. If you won’t be attending TypeCon, but would like to donate items, please email Tiffany and she can give you all the scoop on shipping and such.

Thank you in advance for your support!
