Tis the season

I'm heading up north next week on a huge buying trip and I need to clear out some of my old merchandise. Plus, I LOVE my buyers! So here's an early holiday gift from Northstar Vintage - all store items are 30% off

My newest obsession

I can't resist lawn art. The more bizarre, the better.

Random sign letters are good too.

There are so many incredibly crazy, weird old things out there.

Which is why I get crabby in stores like Home Goods or the Christmas Tree Shoppe; all that Made in China decor adds stress to our environment, in its creation, shipment, and ultimately, disposal (because the tchotchkes are so cheaply made, it's easy to chuck them).

We shouldn't be spoon fed our decor. There are a zillion environmentally friendly options out there. While not the hippest gal out there, Martha Stewart is my idol - the woman could decorate an estate using flower pots, cardboard boxes, and a glue gun.

And of course, ultimately (and selfishly), I think we should apply this concept to clothing. Vintage is green, it's non-exploitive, and still, it looks damn cool.
