I just came across Xenia Taler, a very talented artist. What made me stop, were these different tiles that fit so much into the spirit of Camp. The knot tile goes right along side our knot book that we sell in the Camp Wandawega store! She has created tiles with a campfire theme, arrowheads, fish-How do we not just scoop these all up?
I had $26 and 30 minutes at the unique thrift up in Lincoln Square neighborhood: WHY I LOVE THIS JOINT: Charger & amp; matching plate from England- $5 Antique (new old stock ledger with leather binding) $2 2 1950’s faux wood trays $2 Assortment of vintage kitchen utensils: $5 Hand knit angora 50’s sweater: $2.90 6 decks of retro cards: $3 Herringbone wool throw: $4 Vintage thermos in mint condition: $2 This is why it is physically impossible for me to drive by one of these if their lights are still on. Thanks, unique. see you soon.
Searching around on Etsy, I stumbled on Andrea Lauren’s shop full of fun, whimsical illustrations–Paper Sparrow. Mostly inspired by animals, nature and music, the drawings seem perfect for a woodland nursery or campy kid’s room- (and she creates everything from custom invites to camera pouches) from the creator’s store: “Music and animal themed watercolor art, illustrations, and handmade accessories designed by Andrea Lauren” check out Andrea’s blog & facebookpage
Good Voyage is a design duo, Kate and Katie, working out of “the unexpectedly great town of Bloomington, Indiana”–their words. I discovered their business on Etsy, where I fell in love with their amazing constellation print (also available on notecards). Clicking around, I found their Big Cartel shop where I realized I had seen, and pinned, their cool painted ducks before (via Design Sponge). Their work is so fun and campy! Check out their site and Facebook page and shop their Etsy and/or Big Cartel site. [images from Good Voyage‘s various sites and Design Sponge]
I love the New World Order of online retail. At places like One Kings Lane you can get half-off of just about anything you could possibly want for your home-decorating addiction. We were super jacked when they asked to feature the campstore products (and we’ve been embarrassingly slow with our updates since the sale).
