vintage paintbrushes, toolbox and bucket via kizzyrayan123’s etsy shop.


The past few days have been spent at the new store cleaning and painting and taping book pages to walls. My arms are tired and we have barely begun. But I love the transformation of a run-down, un-loved space into something fresh and hopefully magical. In it’s past life, this particular storefront was a chain vision-center so we really have our work cut out for us in terms of transforming it into something much less sterile and much more Foundrie-esque.

Hopefully I will be able to share before/after pics soon but in the meantime I stumbled across a vintage re-seller on Etsy with a great collection of old paintbrushes and supplies.  All of the items pictured above are currently available in her shop so pop on over and check it out. And don’t forget that all of you crafty vendors have just under 7 days left to apply to consign at The Foundrie. Click the “Consignment” tab above for all the info. Ok, back to painting!!
