Hi Runyan,


Old Style, proper 'Tissue Paper', of various colors, in
largeish sheets, may still be had of so called 'party
stores', which here, have them in tattered rolls of many
sheets occasioning some tedium at the counter as the clerk
s-l-o-w-l-y miscounts them for the Bill...

(I finally made a deal with the Manager where we each guess,
and having a small Cash side-wager on the accuracy of the
guess...manage to have some fun with it. Too, I like to tell
them "I pay Cash and do not want a 'reciept' thank you..." -
which confuses them least at first.)

But they are available.

I used to by Reams as were from Norway, which pleased me as
one does not see anything from Norway usually...

But that particular store went away and the party-stores are
about it so far as I know...

Best wishes,

Hapy Hollidays!
