Through a tiny doorway in the back of our store, there lies an entire other space piled high with old paintings, smalls, old barn doors--a bit of an overflow from the constantly curated main space. This last week, we decided to take to the store's caboose and inspired by more education friendly finds, made our own schoolhouse for every size, age & shape. We collected all the desks, every globe and pull down map we had scattered about, and pulled out collectibles from dark drawers. What resulted we couldn't be happier with! As the new year begins and students head back after the holidays, we feel ready to start new hobbies, reinstate good habits, and resolve to start thinking smarter, not harder about life in 2015.
Before we open our doors for the week, check out our top six vintage picks. We constantly update our inventory, and we want to keep you in the loop of the new things coming in! So, without further adieu, we bring you:
1: Time for show and tell! Pick up a globe while back to school shopping, and share with all your classmates where you adventured over summer break (and make your teachers think you studied geography all summer long).
2: A book shelf? Trophy stand? With school just around the corner, it's time to get your room looking smart with new decor for all those books you'll be studying and awards you'll be winning. These iron and wood shelves also house plants and travel relics, whatever your fancy.
3: These wallets, aka lunch money pouches, are so beautifully embossed and stitched, we can't seem to get enough. From foreign to Fossil, we have one for everyone!
4: Snuggle up to Autumn with this wooly blanket. Whether for sick days or movie nights, a good blanket is always in order.
5: Time to STUDY. It won't seem like such a bad word with a fringe kimono duster to wrap yourself up in. While these double as robes, blankets and loungewear, they also work great for sick days. Feel better and more comfortable whatever you're up to in these beautiful wraps!
6: Back to school shopping is never complete without a first day outfit. Hit the snooze button a few extra times, and still strut onto campus feeling ready for the year in this truly vintage sweater. It will remind your mom of her school days and the favorite sweater she used to wear.
