New Knack inventory!

We're selling out at the Knack Holiday Pop Up Store, so it was time to make more inventory!  On tap:  trays, trays, trays!  Trays with vintage yardsticks!  Trays with vintage maps!  Trays with vintage cookbooks!  And more of the perennial favorites:  yardstick business card holders and decoupaged clipboards.  

I have acquired my own personal shopper for reclaimed crafts goods, for which I am so grateful!  You'll remember her as the scorer of the original inspiration for reclaimed crafts:  chippy wooden balusters at the curb of an old farmhouse by the Connecticut River.  She's been a huge supporter ever since, and besides religiously hitting the Salvation Army on half-price Wednesdays for us, she recently took a trip to her dad's basement, and oh my, what she found.  Hasko Haskelite trays from the 1950's!  Can you think of a better way to display recipes and drawings from the 1958 Good Housekeeping Cookbook series?  No, you cannot.  I had such a good time making these!

  3. Hi - these are awesome!!! I happen to have a few of these - and was wondering what you attached the paper with? Just decopage glue?


  4. Hi there - so sorry to respond so late, I missed your comment through the spam! Yes, I use mod podge to affix and then another layer on top. If you want to make it water proof, put a layer or two of polyeurethene over the top layer of mod podge.
