Vendor Showcase: Feeling Nostalgic

Ah the good ol' days... things were simpler, easier, and had much more interesting typography!  Today's star Handmade Holiday shops all harken back to yesteryear, and we can't help but feel a bit nostalgic when contemplating their amazing goods.

going way back, didn't those victorian ladies just have the best clothing and such witty repartee?

You know what they say, darling, packaging is everything!  And Sweet Anthem's takes us back to the old school apothecary complete with handlebar mustaches.

Speaking of handlebar 'staches, hipsters could learn a thing or two from these strapping men

 Well, you know we had to find something just deliciously nostalgic in this shop.

 And finally for today, one must have a place to keep track of all of these remembrances.

Thank you for including my Max & Co Post postcards. I'm really looking forward to the shopping (and selling) at the show! Checking your "treasuries" and making my shopping list now...
