We were supposed to have our big studio sale last month, but that was postponed due to the flood. For our last hurrah in Art Central, we decided to do something more that just a studio sale: we've invited our friend Janice of Papier Valise to share her amazing selection vintage papers and notions as well.
Paper Stampede is this Saturday July 13 from 11-4 at our location in Art Central (#204 - 100 7th Ave SW). It's an event for paper lovers featuring lots of bundles of great paper ephemera, stationery items and various creative fodder that we have collected over the years. Some furniture, cabinetry and fixtures will also be on offer. Papier Valise, purveyor of vintage treasures will have office supplies, vintage labels, buttons, vintage jewellery-making findings, wall paper and millinery accessories.
UPPERCASE's latest issue has just been released and highlights collage and assemblage—pick up our latest issue along with free paper scraps and old maps for added inspiration. Our Art Central neighbours will also be participating in the event with prints, illustration and photography displays.
Below are some photos of my preparations of paper bundles to whet your appetite.
