Business Week, December 3, 2001

A label collector who was buying from The Label Man on eBay was also an editor at Business Week.  Business Week was doing an e-Biz Supplement called Inside eBay, and he was looking for a photo of a typical eBay seller. This editor thought the labels would be a good option since they are so colorful, so a photographer from San Jose came up for the photo. Although the article was not much about labels, Dwayne recalls the interesting event fondly.

Every year, USPS comes out with a new flower-themed stamp, which is very popular and have a large following for weddings. In 2013, an avid stamp collector who also collected seed packets and labels contacted The Label Man, mentioning the new Antique Seed Packet forever stamps.  Three of the featured images were from Everitt’s Seed Store which was a special find that Dwayne had discovered but never really shared.  He looked up his order history and found that the USPS design and marketing company had bought those packets. The Antique Seed Packet stamps did sell out quickly, showing how popular they are, and it was great for Dwayne to see the packets on stamps.
