Ephemera [ih-fem-er-uh] noun.
1. Transitory written and printed matter not intended to be retained or preserved. The word derives from the Greek, meaning things lasting no more than a day
2. Paper items (as posters, prints, letters and tickets) that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles
We have a new look in the store! We have painted our walls chalkboard black and added lots of new products . . . ephemera!
We are now stocked with a new letterpress stationary line, many styles of ribbons, gift tags, gift packaging, paper tape, postcards and artist made greeting cards.
Office supplies like yellowed notepads, "useful string", and "sharp pencils" add character to any work space.
We have been collecting vintage documents, prints, and papers for many months and we finally have our collection offered for sale! We have refinished turn of the century gilded frames to display them in . . . as well as a new shipment of frames made from metal roofs and wood walls of reclaimed American barns.
We have fabulous clocks that are made in England in reproduction styles of the past. Laundry bags, graphic soaps, and indestructible wallets make unique gift items.
Cutting boards and serving trivets made from the wood of old European buildings and large brown mason jars made from broken recycled beer jugs, are a great way to decorate our homes, while still respecting our earth.
We are still true to ourselves and our love for nature. Botanical European school prints, herbariums, and framed butterflies adorn our walls.
For those who are building or remodeling their home, we have acquired a collection of solid wood doors from a McKinney house that was built in the late 1800s. The doors are of all sizes and finishes, including the original hardware. Besides the few at the store (shown in picture), we have a lot more in storage . . .
We hope to see you soon in our little town in order to share our big treasures with you.
