Little more than a week from our Printers' Fair on the 17th and 18th. Here's how the tables on the floor are beginning to look.
There's eight plus pallets of type, tools, and "things" being processed for Saturday and Sunday. Dozens of composition sticks quions, half a dozen or more furniture cabinets, a few fonts of wood type, even a couple of table-top presses...
...And lots more yet to unpack! By early next week, everything should all be out on the tables and pricing will begin.
Prices will be at "Flea Market" levels. There are bargains to be found!
October 31st, a fun day at the store!
Everyone who came in left with a Halloween bag of letterpress treats.
Visitors included a photographer looking for still life props and a few of our "regulars" who just like to stop in to see what's new. It was really nice to have a group from the Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY.
Their operation and programs are very impressive!
A special greeting to Angie and Daniel from Nova Scotia; they operate a letterpress print shop in downtown Halifax.
The minivan had some weight going back home.
But the best of all; Darrell Hyder of Sun Hill Press dropped by with one of his latest projects. A multi-colored press sheet sampling quite a number of his personal wood type fonts!
Check out the photo (Darrell is the guy on the left).
