Ephemera Anyone?

A lady I know is downsizing.  She has a couple boxes of treasures: pages of recipes, clippings, travel spots, craft ideas, house ideas, holiday stuff.  The graphics are pretty cool.  She would like to have it go to good homes.  We are in the process of trying to package it to sell in the shop.  All you paper people out there....

1.  Do you buy ephemera?
2.  What attracts you to a lot?
3.  Postage?  It is easiest for use to put it in priority envelopes or boxes.  Does that make it cost prohibitive? 
4.  Do you like to get a mix of stuff or do you want a package of Christmas or big ads or what?
5.  If you are searching for paper treasures, what search terms are you most likely to use?  
6.  Speaking of cost....  ??? 

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  1. I buy packages of ephemera on etsy now and then. I usually go for random packages because I like being surprised :). I could see people being interested in buying categories like ads or xmas though. I think I usually spend around $8 - $10 for a medium sized package of goodies.
