vintage goodies

Whenever I'm in midtown, I always try to make a little detour to 37th Street for a stop at my favorite vintage ribbon and trim shop, Tinsel Trading.

Last week I hit the lottery with these cool typographic tiered boxes by Wendy Addison and old fruit can labels. It's the most inspiring place I've ever been, with lots of treasures around every corner.

This butterfly brand label shown (below, left) is amazing in real life. The gold ink is raised and metallic. Looks like engraving!

I even picked up a book by the husband and wife team over at Paper + Cup. It's full of simple-to-follow and crafty DIY paper projects. Such an amazing find!

I snagged their last copy, but not to worry, you can purchase it on Amazon.
