Meet Your Moderator Bev Hamel Of Antiques in Bethania


I was born a paper junkie and this was my very first collection - my father had a shop in Lahaska Pa for many years offering paper collectibles - so the trait was inherited. This stuff literally oozes out of every space imaginable in my office area - I cant bear to part with it or sell it!

It was Alderfer's - a well known name in the antique world besides the auction house of the same name.

I am working on an article about Early (1800's) (early1900) autograph albums/sketchbooks/diaries (perhaps from England) with  original watercolors, drawings, calligraphy. Looking for background information on this subject, collectors. Have been told that they are sometimes referred to as "school girl art" or friendship albums. Want info on customs, history, collectibles, values, background. Please email me at Dianne@cdiannezweig.com  Thank You Dianne

  I have visited both paper ephemera shops over the years.  "Bethania's" father's shop was in Lahaska, Pa., which is in Bucks County.  Karen visited 3-Ls (Leonard L. Lasko) paper shop, which was on Rt. 30 in Lancaster County, Pa.  I hope that clears things up a little.

He had the only paper shop in the area from the late 70s and closed about ten or more years ago.  His shop was right on the main village area and near the big flea market. There was an L in the name - he was well known and people came from all over.

Was your father's shop named something like "LLL Paper" or "3-L's"?  I visited that shop a few times when up in PA.

Thank you for your poss. His shop is the exactly the place I can get lost in. My father, who will be 90 in July, had the most wonderful paper shop in Lahaska PA. But years before he opened it - he horded paper so I got to grow up reading history as it was written with original documents. The house I grew up in PA was built in the 1650s. I remember my parents refinishing floors and uncovering floorboards and walls. Paper was used for insulation. I remember sitting on a chair and reading one such paper - the original address to the troops from George Washington in the winter of 1776. There were other papers - all well preserved. Then he found newel posts with hidden secret places where other tresures were discovered. My favorite was the pine hole beneath my parens bed where later I placed my own time capsule. I wonder if anyone has discovered this yet?

I called around to various antiques malls and stores in the area and want to put in a plug for John Whiting of Whiting's Old Paper.  He was most generous in sending me his copy of Paper & Advertising Collectibles Marketplace.  When in the Richmond area I strongly recommend you visit his shop in the Antique Village mall, 10203 Chamberlayne Rd., Machanicsville, VA (closed Wednesday).  If you collect ephemera, you will be glad you did!

Help!  I wrote an article, "Stitch Samples Advertising with a Difference" that is supposed to have been published in January 2011's Paper & Advertising Collectibles Marketplace periodical.  The editor has not yet sent my my complimentary copy yet and I cannot find a copy of the periodical.  The Woodbridge, VA antique mall used to stock them but closed its doors a few years back.  Does anyone know where I can pick up a copy, the closest to Northern Virginia, the better?  Thanks in advance, Karen
