It's going to be another great month!!!

This month's Papercrafting Kit is full of color, amazing exclusives and versatile embellishments as seen below is these amazing layouts from the team (can you guess who did what??  I can!!) . . .

The Artisian Add-On has many 3-Dimensional extras to take your layouts one step further. . .

And this month's Antiquarian Kit is a collage/mixed media artist's dream with some great vintage/antique smalls that I have been hoarding to put in a kit together - this just seemed like the perfect time!  Check out the early large keyplate with chippy paint  - yummy!!. . .

And wait until you see what Doris has done with this month's Project Kit (not to mention how the team is using the contents in the gallery on their own projects). . .

And of course we have several new additions to the This Month's Finds area of the Flea Market including some more cameras. . .

A cool clock . . .

another sweet stove. . .

and another child's typewriter, just to name a few!!

Happy shopping!  Everything goes up tonight at midnight central time!

Oh- and no photo here, but all of the last 6 month's of exclusive Mercantile clear stamps are now available under stamps in the General Store!

As I prepare. . .

to start my yearly trek on the World's Largest Yard Sale up 127, I thought I would share a little peek into one of my boxes in the basement.  I organize things by either theme or color so I can easily create vignettes for shows.  This is a peek into my Christmas box (even though not one of these items is actually Christmas themed)!

I am planning on taking some photos this week and will post some updates of my progress.  My week will be cut a bit short as I am headed to Stampaway in Cincinnati on Thursday (but good news for those attending - I will have lots of new goodies to share)!

Hope you all had a nice weekend!

Little gems. . .

Believe it or not, these little guys only stand about 1.5" - 3.5" tall.  There was actually an antique fair next door to our hall at Mega Meet in May and that's where I picked them up.  Not even sure what I will fill them with - I'm just enjoying looking at them for now, all huddled together.

Just wanted to post a little something to tide you over until we get back into town for a longer period of time.  Sorry to be such a slacker.  This summer has been a big blur!!

Have a wonderful weekend -

JBS Mercantile July Mid-Month Flea Market

Today's the day!  July 15th means it's time for another Mid-month Flea Market at JBS Mercantile.

The goods will go live today at 10:00am CST this morning.  Jenni has left for CHA, but she wanted me to give you a little picture of what's in store.

You'll find all sorts of treasures inside (oh you'll want to check tomorrow just to see what's inside these sweet little books that are really boxes of Dennison Goodness).

This summer has certainly been a hot one, but our aisles are the perfect place to relax and beat the heat.

If a wild time is what you're after, well, we have that too!  ;)

We've even got the tools you'll need to document your many adventures.

Why, we've got everything AND the kitchen sink at the JBS Mercantile Flea Market this month!  -Doris

A little studio inspiration . . .

So while I am super busy trying to get samples ready to share for CHA (can't wait to share the new stuff with you!), I thought it would be fun to share some photos of some of the drawers and box fronts in my studio.  I am obsessed with old drawers in particular (hence why they keep popping up in the shop)!  Enjoy!
