Christmas Cards 2010: $25
Sure, everyone’s getting into the letterpress game these days, but we’ve been itching for a reason to work with our local metal type addicts Jill, Ray and Tray Nichols at Lead Graffiti. Hipsters, long beards, waxed mustaches and single speeds aside, you still can’t beat the tactile experience of banging a crisp inked impression into soft paper and the euphoria associated with the risk of getting a piece of loose clothing caught in the reciprocating maw of a Heidelberg windmill.

7 Cards
One each of seven designs
4.25 x 5.5 in (108 x 140 mm)
Crane Lettra 110#
French Construction brick envelopes
Special custom box

Always have been a last minute Christmas shopper. I unfortunately seem to be going down this bumpy horrible-nerve wrecking road for the rest of my procrastinated life. *Deep sigh. Looking at these Christmas cards from House Industries, has made me realize that itsa bout time to change my ways. Because guis I am a lil bummed. A good kinda bummed-these things are great looking!Still, I dont know why I didn’t check these dudes out sooner (14 dollars for second day shipping…I could maybe give them out with presents? hm.). There might still be some time…
Also for next years festivites:

Inspiration: Vacancy (the movie)

19 Dec

My boyfriend’s dad was recently watching a movie and I happened to walk by as a trailer for this movie was being played. Of course I had to immediately stop what I was doing to admire the furniture but was saddened by how awful the plot of the movie seemed.

I skimmed the whole movie on Youtube in search of nice things and it was just as terrible as I expected. Check it our for yourself though (if scary movies are your thing). Here are some screenshots from the movie, sorry about the poor quality:

Here are a couple of things seen in the movie that you can buy for your own home … and I think Cheryl at 57th st has some pole lamps and side tables at more reasonable prices (I’ll double check what she has though):

$35 (+$38 shipping) – (ac1980vac)

$380 free shipping (modernandobjects)

$9.99 (+$8.50 shipping) – (fabtasticvintage)

$180 (+$120 shipping) – (moxieapparel)
