More Design Inspiration

Another quick post about some more design inpired snapshots I’ve peeped while out and about. Maybe it’s just my personal preference, but I love that no-frills, bold-as-heck packaging from the 60’s & 70’s. Those fonts, that script, the illustrations. How cute is that little holiday elf guy logo? The only things I actually bought in this set are the flashcards and the blank place cards. I bought them thinking that I’m always talking to thrift store managers and resellers, yet I never have a business card to give them. So, logically I figured “Why don’t I find something in a thift store to print or letterpress them on, DIY-style, to give out as my business card.” Flashcards and invitations make perfect stock for them. So there you have it. Stay tuned.

Mom’s Finds

HEY PALS, I’M BAAAACK! The holidays usually take a rough toll on my blog posting frequency, but fret no more – for here’s a few sparkly fresh batches of THINGS I FOUND (at the thrift store).

Being home meant spending some time with the family and seeing MOM. She’s the one to thank for my resourcefulness, street smarts and she’s responsible for introducing me to thrift stores at a young age. I found her those 2 Berggren Trayner pieces for her ever-growing collection of his stuff (shown above). The other pics are stuff SHE picked up on a joint thrifting venture over the holiday weekend. She scooped that odd but beautiful handmade vase. It has a really cool finish on it with a bunch of changing colors, the photos truly don’t do it justice! My guess is it’s probably been Raku fired. She’s got a good eye for photo stuff too. All I can say is Austin Gullixson now has some in-town competition regarding vintage Polaroid stuff now, watch it A-Gux! All of these finds were $2.99 or less.
