Vintage Greeting Card Review

Vintage Greeting Card Pack

vin·tage: of old, recognized, and enduring interest, importance, or quality (Merriam-Webster)

Vintage items evoke feelings of nostalgia…they are reminiscent of the past.  However, they appeal to people of all ages.  They don’t just have a look about them, they have a feel about them.  This is precisely what Julie of Our Vintage Flair achieves in her line of vintage greeting cards.   Her intricate designs are carefully handcrafted with appropriate and relevant adornments.  The attention to detail is outstanding.  These are cards that will be cherished and saved in a  keepsake box not only for the sentimental message inscribed by a loved one, but for the card itself!

Greeting cards are wholesaled as sampler packs that include “special occasion” and “holiday”.  These vintage greeting cards make an eye-catching display.  Buyers will pick them up, read them, and appreciate them for their beauty.  Buyers will be prompted to purchase a card and send it in the mail, the old-fashioned way, instead of sending the standard unemotional email or text that is becoming a constant today.  Help your clientele re-connect with family and friends in a thoughtful, considerate way!

Felted Wool Slippers, Pink

Awesomeness…straight from Kyrgyzstan!  Nurbek handcrafts these felted wool slippers with clear expertise and care, using 100% sheep wool. They are extremely comfortable and warm…but not too warm. The unique, oriental detailing is done by hand, and is a treat in-and-of itself.  The natural wool material breathes easily, is eco-friendly and biodegradable. The interior surface organically absorbs perspiration…so no more stinky, sweaty feet!  These slippers are unique, functional, and special.  They are great for gifts, the holidays, men, women, and yourself!

Superior Lake Agate Pendant

Beauty and nature are often intertwined.  Sometimes in an untouched state, sometimes after gentle manipulation by a creative mind.  This is clear in Krista’s handmade, wire wrapped genuine stone jewelry.  The fusion of nature and nurture, life and love, creatively and appropriately joined in a piece of wearable art that lies close to one’s heart.

Krista bends and works the wire by hand, creating the perfect enclave for the focal point of the piece.  Buyers may choose Argentium® Sterling Silver, Copper, or 14/20 Gold Filled wire.  The gemstones used come straight from the earth, and are available in many shapes and colors.  The beauty of each piece speaks for itself, from the vibrant natural color to the intricately wrapped wire.  Each is a statement piece and is one-of-a-kind.  Register online as a wholesale buyer and receive free access to Krista’s wholesale line sheet.
