Your favorite vintage British transit route signs are soon to be available as fabric to purchase! And you can get in on the front end through this Kickstarter campaign, now!
Junk Bonanza vendor and friend, DeWayne Lumpkin Design Studio, is excited to bring this yardage — in cotton duck and cotton/linen — to you! DeWayne’s $7,000 campaign seeks to fund the first run of 200 yards of the patinated slate-colored fabric, milled in the United States and digitally printed in California.
The fabric reproduces the vintage signs he has been using for years in his home design projects and sales.
The Kickstarter campaign has only 23 days to go! At the campaign’s conclusion, items printed in the transit typography — including postcards, pillow covers, yardage and hanging signs, among others — are available to those who pledged.
Junk Bonanza is pleased to note that yardage will make its retail debut at the Bonanza’s Portland-area event, Oct. 9-11 at the Clark County Event Center in Ridgefield, WA!
Each two-yard panel is designed as a 56 inch wide by 72 inch long section, priced at $140 – a single yard is available at $65 which includes the full 56 inch width, but only half the length.
Kickstarter pledgers have the ability to choose top and bottom sections of horizontal yardage and specify right and left sides of vertical yardage. Once the fabric is printed, customers will not be able to make those choices – it will be first come, first served.
DeWayne, of Grants Pass, OR, will be at the Alameda Point Antiques Faire this weekend, also known as Antiques by the Bay. If you’re in the Alameda-San Francisco Bay area, stop by and see him in his corner booth, O-5!
