The good stuff!

The bright sunlight reflecting off the cobblestone catches your eye as you listen to the noisy chatter of the merchants bartering, rhythmic jingling of the gypsy bracelets worn by almost everyone and other rattles and clangs of the busy marketplace.  You stuff your packages from the binderie workshop into your knapsack, freeing your hands to explore.

Eyeing the sea of trinkets, you approach a worn table barely covered from the sun by a sagging umbrella made from patches of draperies and old fabrics.  Old postbills and newspaper ads, yellowed postcards & photos, weathered sales slips and other bits of paper are stacked into haphazard piles along the length of the wooden table.  You begin thumbing through them, searching for the perfect additions to the bookboard bundles from the binderie; setting aside those that seem extraordinary.  

Moving from pile to pile, you finally reach the end of the table and are astounded at how many wonderful bits of ephemera you have collected for your books- yet to be made.  After a brief exchange with the old gypsy behind the table, you drop a few heavy coins into his grubby hands.  The paper merchant smiles as he ties your findings with a length of twine and your heart leaps as you walk away examining the magnificent finds.

Vintage & Gypsy ephemera, printed on chipboard for an authentic feel, make eclectic additions to your binderie books.Transparencies in various sizes inspired by our finds...Tags for journaling then binding into your albums...Or 2 sided journaling cards.  Cardstock printed and ready to be bound together or used in your junque journals...Oh the possibilities... a little brown paper sack with gussets to store piles of photos or other findings.  Stamp on it, journal, doodle, cover with paper, embellish then bind into a book!
