I recently discovered Nostalgic Impressions, an online retailer specializing in old-fashioned writing implements and accessories. I haven't yet had the opportunity to order anything but plan to do so in the future.
What I am currently most excited about is their traditional handmade sealing wax, which is advertised as being "handproduced ... in the same authentic methods of yesteryear" and for which they provide instructions for use. Personally, I don't think I would have thought of moistening the seal or using the bottom of the wax stick to blend the wax before pressing the seal into it.
