Typographic Printers Tray

For the past year i’ve been on the lookout for one of these: Vancouver is a hard place to find them apparently. I’m dying for the day when I can display all my random collections in one perfect place on my wall. Does anyone know where I can find one in Vancouver? I’ve tried antique shows and flea markets, craigslist and ebay. Someday…someday I will find one.

Fashion on Broadway

You’d think that on a street called Broadway in Vancouver, British Columbia, there’d be some pretty swanky fashion, right? Well one night on a walk to the movies I came across these little gems: Are those tassels that belong on pillows?? Is that my grandmothers old table cloth? Okay I don’t mean to totally bash these designers, but I just find it pretty amusing and had to share it with the world. I mean, there obviously is a market out there for this stuff if they can afford to keep their location on this main street.

Feather Headbands

Finally after many weeks of procrastination, I got around to making myself a cute feather headband. I simply refused to purchase one from the many places around town that are selling them for $20-$45. All it really takes is a little trip to a dollar store or a fish tackle supply store for the feathers and another trip to a thrift store or in my case, my mom’s old 80’s jewellry for some embellishment. And lastly find yourself some inexpensive headbands from accessory stores or even a dollar store. Then with a little creativity it all comes together. Now that […]
