Grayslake: Paper and More This Weekend


Ephemera. It's such a lovely word. Go ahead -- just whisper it. Ahh. Magic. I like it so much that I almost named the business "Ephemera." I was only held back by its meaning -- impermanent, transitory. Probably not the best thing for a business to be! But still, ephemera is a well-represented category at rhubarb reign -- we love all things paper. And we know you do, too.
So here's the scoop -- this weekend at Grayslake, we will have a special selection of ephemera for all your project needs. And we won't be the only ones showing off our paper -- this Grayslake's "Show Withing a Show" is Paper and Postcards. What could be better?
Vintage papers are perfect for collage, scrap booking, framing, you name it. For the chosen few with the foresight to own a document shredder, a damaged book with no further shelf can be reborn into fabulous piles of paper fluff, perfect for nestling into containers. Arrange a few glass jars full of different papers on a tabletop and voila, instant centerpiece.

Of course, if you're not into DIY, we will have a great new selection of our finished paper projects, plus lovely furniture, a literal TON of garden concrete, a dress form or two, and much more. So don't miss the Grayslake Antique Market this weekend -- click on the show sidebar for details. xo
