A Quick Shop Tour

I love my shop. I love that I feel at home here. It's my happy place. It's where I can be Chelsey, not mom, not wife, not daughter, just me...doing my thing. 

That's me (Hi!) at my 1923 Chandler and Price platen press. She's my baby. We've had her in our family since the 1940's when my grandfather bought another newspaper. I have pictures that have this press in it from the time, which I love. She's the first press we refurbished and the one that I started this business with. 

I was so excited in the beginning to order my first supplies. I love all the little pieces it takes to do letterpress printing. We have had hoards of wood type in our collection for decades and it was so rewarding to practice printing with them. 

I have a couple of sets of wood furniture and a collection of ink that stand in front of one of my favorite features in the shop...my navy blue brick wall. 

Well, that's a quick tour of little parts of the shop. I'll share more soon, only for the fact that I LOVE to see other peopel's shop spaces, and hope that other people will like these. 

Now..back to work!

Chelsey
