Announcement   Just moved to Sandpoint IDAHO!!!.... LIFE IS NEVER BORING!!!
So I'm setting up the shop again... crazy fun vintage wallpaper and other barn finds!

MOST OF MY ITEMS ARE VINTAGE WALLPAPER-

WITH A FEW ""VINTAGE AND COLLECTABLE ITEMS"" INCLUDED.......

I stumbled upon a old warehouse stocked piled with vintage and retro INCREDIBLE Wallpaper..... from that I scoured and hand picked & purchased just the cream of the crop... Giant Paisley, Chinoiser Asian & Dragons, to Authentic Grass Cloth & CHROME FOIL wallpaper...All my paper is "HAND PRINT",FOIL OR GRASS CLOTH. These are truely vintage and probably the last of their kind. The uses for the paper is endless: Inside a curio cabinet, re-paper a lamp shade,inside book shelves, cover a stack of books, or........ JUST FRAME IT!!! It is THAT beautiful....
***************************************************************************************************
USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT WALLPAPER:
While wallpaper books list prices per Single Roll, the wallpaper is manufactured and sold in Double Rolls. (Some papers are also sold in Triple & Quad Rolls) While this system may seem odd, double and triple rolls provide longer continuous lengths of paper with more useable full lengths.

For example, a single roll with approx. 13 running feet of paper would allow you to cut only one 8 or 9 foot strip per roll, whereas 3 full strips could be cut from a double roll (9 yards, or 27 feet, long).

SINGLE ROLLS YIELD APPROX 30 SQ FEET

Wallpaper is also manufactured in a variety of widths. The wider the paper, the fewer strips you'll have to hang and the fewer seams. Here are two common widths:

•MY paper is averaging 27- 30" wide with a a average of 27-28 useable print area. And a length of 13 feet on the Single Rolls - I have Mostly Triple Rolls and cut-out from that roll to fill an order.
•In addition, Wallpaper Borders vary in width but are typically packaged in 5 yard rolls.
When purchasing you'll need to determine if the paper you've selected has a "drop match" or a "straight match", since a drop match means more paper will be needed. An example of a straight match wallpaper would be a plain vertical stripe that doesn't need matching at the seams. Most other patterned wallpapers however are printed with a drop match that ranges from a few inches to a few feet. Drop match papers will require careful matching at the seams.
BEST WISHES & BLESSINGS!!

It's so beautiful and arrived very quickly. I loved it so much I went on line to purchase additional paper and saw you were no longer selling. :(

About

What are you waiting for....

If I've learned anything after 40+ years.... it's to go with your instincts... yes sometimes the roads of life detour us to places we didn't intend on going... but if you relax, open your mind, appreciate what you are going thru... Life/God (whatever higher power you choose) will show you things, put people in your path, bless you with experiences beyond your most creative imagination could EVER think up.....

Enjoy YOUR journey... and if you're not... you have the choice today to change it.
