Item details

There are 9 various templates and right angle rulers, dating all the way through my mother's art career. She lived in NE Florida and was well regarded as an artist, painter, collage and multi-media artist, and an excellent drawing teacher. There will be three other offerings of her templates, as she collected so many, and there were duplicates, that I decided to break up the collection and "spread the wealth".

These templates represent her career...I am going to list each of the templates below. Please be aware these are from an artist's studio, used, vintage, some unopened or still in their sleeves, and filled with the creative force her energy left with them! She started her career as a draftsman with Union Oil in Long Beach, CA, and never looked back. Her lettering and her collages were my favorites, as she could combine such interesting media to make startling statements in her art.

If you see the corners of two clear plastic right angle rulers, those have been bought, and I cropped the photos to try to exclude them...thanks for overlooking them!

Let me know if you have specific questions...the templates themselves weigh in at a pound, so I will be shipping them priority mail at 2 pounds. Please convo me with your zip code for an accurate mailing rate. Thank you.

It would be my pleasure to combine shipments of items to save you money and me trips to the post office. Shipping is done by the USPS, and most things I have up for sale are shipped either First Class Mail or Priority Mail. I cannot be responsible for items that are not insured. I live 20 miles from the nearest post office, so I am going to be mailing packages on Monday and Friday as I start this new venture. Thank you in advance for working with me to save gas and the atmosphere.

Returns & exchanges

Being so new to the site, I would stress that my descriptions and photographs are genuine and honest. That said, transactions in my former retail and cyberspace shops were always final. I am still finding my feet here, so I am willing to work with buyers to make all purchases pleasing to both parties. Thank you for seeking out Retro Broad's offerings.
