1950s Japanese Toy Car with Coffee Logo, $9.95, from {dwinal} on Etsy. Click to view listing!

Rise and shine, shoppers, and smell the (1950s Japanese, car-shaped) coffee!

Today’s vendor spotlight features the careful collection of Jennifer Collins of allsey and {dwinal}.  They’re actually two different things, so today we’re featuring {dwinal} and all it’s vintage glory.

JC’s got an extensive collection of house-shaped purses that are just about the sweetest things you can hope to find at a holiday sale.  I saw a Big Thaw customer walking away with a darling one last April, but no worries – there are still some left!  Here is a Big Chill favorite:

Jennifer knows it’s time to get ready for the Big Chill when there’s a layer of snow covering everything, which I’m personally hoping waits until Christmas Eve or thereabouts… but wouldn’t it be romantic if the snow was falling outside Mayo Street on December 3rd?  Mmm… pretty winter craft fair!

Just so that we’re not ending on a ‘thinking about layers of snow’ note, check out this vintage, tooled leather bag from {dwinal} that could totally be the feature on our next poster:

Come meet Jennifer of {dwinal} on Saturday, December 3rd at the Mayo Street Arts Center, 10 Mayo Street, in Portland, Maine.  You won’t be disappointed!

Speechless! I’ve literally never written a check for anything so cool as 100, limited edition, four-color screen prints of a fox, a bunny rabbit and two birds.  All of them signed and numbered, ready to share with the local universe (and beyond!)

 

so so so so so so nice!

I’ve made an Etsy listing for local people, click here if you’d like to purchase and pick up somewhere on the peninsula (I’m flexible and mobile).

Annnd here is a listing for those who can’t make it to the Portland, Maine peninsula or for those who are insanely busy like me (I hear ya, we’re nuts!) who would like me to ship it to you.  Really fantastic Spring colors, one of these is promised to a frame to hang in the hallway at my place!

 

look at the fox pop! bright, citrus orange against blues and greens!

The poster, which is printed in four colors on gorgeous, heavy-weight paper, will be for sale at the very reasonable price of $10 the day of the fair.  If you purchase in advance, however, the Etsy listings are 20% off at $8.  Coupon clipping be damned, here is a better way to make some savings!

We’ll be using proceeds from the sales of the posters to printing flyers, making proper sign-age the day of the event, populating Mayo Street with candy dishes full of delicious candy and so much more.

Oh!  Did I mention Emblem Studio was available for custom screen printing work?  Such excellent craftsmanship, we are so, so pleased here at The Big Thaw.
