Tomorrow is the 15th!!!

We have alot going on over at Mercantile beginning tomorrow at 10:00 central time!

I am putting up my first Limited Edition Kit in FOREVER it seems!  I had been stockpiling some favorite items that had been over-ordered and paired them with some classic JBS.  The result was this super fun "County Fair" book.  It is tradition here that I do something County Fair related in August (ours starts this Saturday and is the best in the state)!  I loaded some metallic red thread into my sewing machine (from a recent hoard of unique thread finds from JoAnns) and had some fun.  You don't have to have a sewing machine to do this project however.  And . . . I used to make pom poms with yarn when I was little and it got me to thinking, why not twine instead??  The result was this adorable, fluffy twine pom pom!  It is very simple (instructions will come with the kit) but I will be doing a video soon on them, once we get twine in and loaded into the General Store.  That is among many exciting things we have coming to the site!

This kit will be available to Member's Only tomorrow.  After the 15th, if any remain they will be open for general purchase.  I have very limited number of these!  You will be able to find them under Limited Edition Kits.



We will also have a very large addition to our Flea Market area including more cameras. . .


Amazing heavy cardboard menswear catalog pages (very large and suitable for framing). . .

My most amazing sewing machine find yet. . .

cute coffee bags with neat graphics. . .

another amazing tin (they are highly nutritious-ha!) . . .


and another Ward's catalog. . .

Just to name a few - really.  There are more than 20 new items!

And. . . we are having an amazing sale in our Past Kit area.  We have less than 10 of any of the kits listed so get them while you can.  25% - 60% off.  While supplies last. (Dime Store Kits are also further discounted and can be found in the Limited Edition kit area).

See you tomorrow!

Oh I love that County Fair kit. Definately will be getting that. I have the one you did last year (I think) and put our fair pictures in it from the year before. The kit was perfect for those pictures. Love the coffee bags too...have to put one of those in my cart. That might be the cover to my Oct Daily. Fun fun...
Grandson is getting ready to start school so I am getting ready to have some days to myself... Loooking forward to fall, working on some of the past kits I haven't had time to work on, some estate sales, Country Living Fair in GA, Nashville Flea market and pumpkin coffee.... I feel like it is going to be a great fall!!
Take care!

Love those menswear pages! I still have my little singer sew handy machine! I used to try to sew on it all the time. Never worked very well for me but it s a real sweetie to keep.
