A little back story...our sister company, Vintage Spirit, dissolved a few years ago. They used to make t-shirts, magnets, magnet boards, picture frames, and all sorts of unique items. We finally are getting around to cleaning out our warehouse of finds and offering these items to the public! For the month of January we have been hosting an "Arts and Crafts" sale at our store front. This is perfect for anyone who has a creative spirit and enjoys making crafts. We have items like scrapbooking paper, vintage jewelry pieces, picture frames, vintage mannequins, you name it. Here is a little DIY inspiration for what to create with these items.

Wreaths always add an extra warm to your front door or a nook in your home. Create your own littles flowers with scrapbook paper into accordion circles. You can choose paper the reflects the season or something more neutral to hang year-round. Find the tutorial here.
