I’m really excited to announce that I will be selling at Block Party Handmade Boutique!  It’s my first time showcasing my new line of items for children including skirts, dresses, headbands, toys and more!  Everything is re-purposed and vintage so you can feel great shopping from me because you’ll be ‘going green!’

Here is a preview of some of the items I’ll be selling.

Kordal

I love browsing the kickstarter website looking for interesting projects. I was looking through the fashion category and stumbled upon Kordal. Kordal is based in New York and is a knitwear clothing company. Their project on kickstarter is to raise $10,000 by May 18 to help launch the 2013 Spring collection and attend the Capsule Trade Show in New York City.

I think their items are beautifully crafted and I love the idea of combining high end style with comfort. Watch their video here and maybe you’ll be inspired to donate! They have a great selection of knitted incentives including ties, bracelets, hats and sweaters!

Imogene + Willie

Imogene + Willie is a denim company based in Nashville, TN.  They style and manufacture their own clothes. I love how their designs are inspired by their grandparents and family history.

I picked out a pair of jeans for myself and my husband. Now I’m just going to cross my fingers and wish for these for my birthday!

Frank & Oak

Frank & Oak is a clothing line for men based in Montreal. They manufacture, retail and design all of the items. Launched in 2012, the store is based entirely online and offers high fashion and quality clothes for men. Since there is no middle man and you purchase directly from Frank & Oak, the prices are affordable. Every item is under $50 and shipping to the US is only $6.

I chose a few of my favorite items from April’s collection to share with you.

Elysium Tie in Denim, Camden Scarf in Army, Monogram Tee in Marine, Marshall Cuff Links, Narita Shirt in Vintage Black.

Handmade Little Girl Aprons

I love aprons. I think they should be a part of everyday style.   I’ve recently started making aprons out of vintage and recycled fabrics for both adults and little girls. Today we’re showcasing some of the little girl aprons I’ve been creating. No two are exactly alike!  They come in a variety of sizes and colors fitting 2 year olds all the way up to 10-12 year olds! Below are some aprons in progress and a few of my finished items. Each one comes with a removable broach made out of felt and recycled material!

 

(obviously these photos would be better if some little girls were modeling them… 🙂 but I don’t have any little girls so these photos will have to do.) I will be selling at the Mama’s Hip Christmas Fair on December 4 and then at Nelligan Hall on December 17.

 

Mod Cloth

Mod Cloth is a website that sells vintage and designer items. Their stock includes everything from clothes to hip retro accessories.  Not everything on the website is vintage, many items are by indie designers. Their collection is eclectic and offers something for everyone whether you want skinny jeans or a mid-century June Cleaver style dress. I chose a few of my favorite items to show you. Mod Cloth was started by one person and successfully grew into what it is today! Learn more on their website through their history and browse their collections!  http://www.modcloth.com/
