I am absolutely in love with the Chalk Ink that we are NOW selling. My sweet friend Laurie sent me a sample and I haven't had it out of my hand since receiving it.
We have always used blackboards, slateboards - whatever you choose to call them - as a way of advertising or bringing awareness to a certain "happening" or item new to the store. "Sign our Email List", "Open House begins...." or just writing "Hello Sunshine" !! Tony, at an auction a few years ago, purchased all the slateboard from a school that closed in the '40's and now was being torn down. They are 4' x 8' pieces of very "HEAVY" old slate. He made many, many, many slateboards from this - some he framed and some he just drilled holes to hang. Only a piece or two is in the store that I use as signs..."Baskets to carry your Country Wares" in the Papergoods room, "Toweling by the Yard" in our Threadgoods room...I KNOW there has to be at least one more sheet hiding somewhere and will work on him to cut these pieces again this spring.
Until then....we have used some "blackboard paint" that Tony prepared and put into frames...some old, some new. Our Chalk Ink works great on these, won't smear and erases with water.
Stop in and try it out today...
