Makit & Bakit

We made these growing up. Maybe not this exact kit, but the one we had did include the dove of peace and trio of candles, for sure. I love everything about this. The vibrant colors. The lockup of Makit & Bakit. The gradients. Heck, I even like their use of Hobo. I scoured eBay to […]

Had this Boy Scout Handbook on my shelf for years. It became my 404 page at one point.
