New Flea Market Finds!!

Coming tomorrow - April 15th at 10:00 a.m. central time . . .!!

I LOVE these tiny drawers.  They have thumb pulls and an index slot for personalization (pair them with our general store price tags).  They would look great in a group on a shelf, full of Ephemera or little bits and pieces.  We had similar drawers to these once and sold out cause they are that cool (ha!). . .


 A mis-matched font, metal alphabet stamping set (we have 2). . .



A wonderful mid-century general store display for needles (with 18 tiny compartments). The graphics are still vibrant and the color is great . . .
 

Cute little boxes for Beef Suet (yep), with great graphics . . .
 

Several vintage tin child's toys this time, including the Wolverine stove and a matching fridge (love these as studio storage). . .


It's been a while since I have had an old child's sewing machine to offer and this one is FABULOUS - it still cranks well. . .

 

Love this collectible HUBLEY farm truck.  It has great color and detail.  We use these guys to hold our postcards at shows.  You can use them for the same or any type of storage in your studio!


So much more too - be sure to check in tomorrow!!

A new video. . .

I have been a busy a little bee - trying to share my love of rub-ons with the rest of the of the crafting world!  If you have been afraid of using rub-ons, fear no more!  I will show you in the video below in just 13 minutes how to use them, how to trouble-shoot, where to use them and why I can't live without them!

And just added to our SALE shelf in the Mercantile, a new Rub-On Lovers Kit . . . the perfect way to get started at a great value!

Marburger Farms. . .

 So we are back from our 10 day adventure in Round Top, TX at the Marburger Farms antique show!  By far my favorite part of traveling is getting to see the friends we have made on the road and create new friendships.  Shows become families (or at least at Marburger, tents become family)!  It is a wonderful aside to the selling.

And shall I also mention the scenery?  Everyday as we traveled the 30 miles to the venue, along with longhorns and bluebells, this is what we saw:


I always Instagram in real time when I'm on the road, so if you want to see what's going on as it unfolds, follow me there (search for jbowlin7).

 For this show I tried to stick with a single color palette (natural wood, white and green with black accents).  It seemed perfect for Spring.  Here are a few photos of our booth on the first day - ENJOY!
