Last month I picked up a framed, vintage English poster at an estate sale.
Artwork like this is why I continue to go to estate sales and walk the aisles of antique malls. You never know when you’re going to happen on something unique for your home.
This piece appealed to me because I’m a sucker for words and typeface and I loved reading all the details of this church event.
I wondered if the poster itself might be a reproduction. The label on the back told me that, even if that was the case, it was still framed quite a while ago and in England. I loved that bit of detail.
I hung the poster in my office. And that framed poster you can see in the hallway is part of a group of three that I bought at another estate sale.
They’re all framed art exhibit posters (more typeface!). I originally thought they might go in our bedroom, but they worked much better on this hallway wall, which has always been empty. They give new meaning to the term ‘gallery wall.”
I hope you’re finding interesting things in your travels.
P.S. In between posts you’ll find me on Instagram.
Love your artwork. Don’t you love to hit the jackpot at an estate sale!! Have a great week.
Nothing better, Katie.
Julie, those are all lovely! I especially like your hallway gallery. The poster in your office is perfect with that clock and chair.
Right now I’m trying to decide on something for a large, empty wall in our kitchen. I’ve always admired the great illustrations on both the front and back covers of Cook’s Illustrated. I might start with framing/matting a few of the back covers. I’ve actually thought about doing it for years.
Jillian, I LOVE that idea. Send pictures when you’re done!
