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!

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.

Women like pretty pillows…and not just for the bedroom. For the living room, the family room, the sun room, wherever there is a sofa or comfy chair. What we love even more than decorative pillows is a decorative pillow imparting a message to us each time we walk by. Cindy’s passion for fabric combines with her sentimental nature to provide quality products with a personal touch. Her pillows are not too firm or too soft, but just right; attractive; and meticulously constructed…equal if not better quality than similar pillows found at major trendy retailers. Her creative and witty sayings add a custom touch than will leave you smiling (click here and open image for full listing).
Cindy is a brick-and-mortar shop owner herself, and displays her pillows together in antique crates or baskets, and also sprinkles them all over the store, and they always sell! These pillows are especially perfect as housewarming gifts and wedding gifts, but are also fun to buy for oneself. Take it from another shop owner that this is a sure bet.
