I think every storekeeper has her/his own little pet peeves when they go shopping.....mine is price tags that you can't read....or ones that stick to the item and leave a mark....there is another one but afraid I might offend...so I will keep it to myself. I have this need to make my price tags different. Now I know they are just price tags....and believe me I don't think I am that great....I just like mine. I coffee stain them (dry in microwave)....the paper and sticky ones....and then hand stamp the name of the item or something similar with my little alphabet stamps... the price usually goes on the back of the tag with a sticky tag hand stamped with the price or one from aged paper with my handwritten description and price. Silly? Probably.....time consuming...oh yes....very - but like I said some storekeepers have their "thing" and that is mine. I have MANY sets of stamps....new and antique - with gidgets and gadgets to go with them. AND stamps.....lots of stamps for everyday and every holiday. I love to play...I also LOVE stickers...yeppers....I have lots of old ones...(geez you even have to lick them)....and some new ones too. My friend Miss Prudence(knowing how I love stickers and glitter) bought me a wonderful package of Halloween stickers ...all with glitter. AND I use them....love sticking stickers on everything - maybe I will never grow up!
For Halloween I used a tag punch ( thank you Brunie Mae for this sweet gift) to cut out a tag from aged orange construction paper....punched a star hole in it...and then, from dear sweet Martha, purchased a punch of a witch on a broom. I punched out the witch from black construction paper and glued each witch on the tag....Pinned the price tag on with a rusty pin and I was happy. Now I am trying to find something for the Christmas items...have to do it in a hurry so I can get this pricing done...will keep you up-to-date on what I choose. Any ideas??? ANd hey what is your thing???
