She's mighty mighty, just lettin it all hang out* (Midwest)


So my hubby, Joey, was born in the wrong decade. I think he was meant to live in about 1929 or so. He has always had a thing for history and collecting old stuff. It would not be unusual to hear him rant "They sure don't make stuff like they used to!" I swear his is an 80 year old man sometimes. "Kids, get out of my yard!" "Don't just stand there with your hands in your pockets! " I'm sidetracking here...

After many years of finding, collecting and storing things in every corner of our house. He has rented a modest little booth at a local antique shop. I'm kinda excited to help him with his side project. The plan is to stock the booth with his style of crap, and hopefully recoup our monthly booth fee.



We're calling ourselves Brick House Salvage. Because we live in a Brick House. And...yeah that's it. (* Did you get the Brick House lyrics reference in the post title? Did you?) I plopped some type together to create a very quick and dirty logo (top idea). Being the crafty gal that I am, I punched some tags, cut some twine and voila. A hang tag is born. Today we start stocking the booth. It will be like playing house and playing storekeeper all at one time.

Wheeheeeeeeee!

Like the item tag. Would make a great business card. Very tight logo. Like the first of the three best.

Laurie, When we got to the booth, the previous tenant still had not moved one thing out. So we ended up helping move the heavy stuff. A dentist chair. Large cabinets... Today we go back and arrange our junk. It was fun, though.

Justin, if we make any profit I'm going to purchase plates to letterpress biz cards for Brick House.

Good idea on the letterpress cards. I would just gang it onto the next plate order! Go for it, you will make a profit. Think positive!

Nice. I also like the first logo the best. There's no doubt that this is Joey's true calling.
