Los Angeles vintage shopping map and a giveaway? Yup, you read that right folks. I’ve partnered with Jeanee of Finely Crafted to bring 3 lucky winners the fabulous Los Angeles vintage shopping print. Not only is it a great resource (my favorite and secret spots are on the map), but it’s a great print to add to your gallery wall. Now more about the fancy brains behind the print.
Jeanee says the map idea came to her because when she visits an unfamiliar city, she likes to give herself a little project to help her explore it. She of course hits the big art museum, but she also wants to see some great vintage furniture and clothing, since she has a passion for thrifting. It occurred to her last year when she was planning an extended stay in LA that it would be fun to put her research to use by making an art print that documents all the best vintage boutiques and shows in a visual way, with icons that represent the spirit of the destinations and the city. I thought it would be a good business move too, since she noticed in her own shop that people love to buy city-centric things. Cindy Tomczyk of Paper Parasol Press, whose work Jeanee carryies, was the perfect illustrator to help her design the prints. Cindy has a cheerful, midcentury-inspired drawing style and shares Jeanee’s passion for mod pottery, diner signs, tiki mugs, etc. They warmed up with Jeanee’s stomping ground, Atlanta, then moved on to the more challenging LA!
To enter, just leave a comment below telling me your favorite thing about vintage shopping. That’s it. The giveaway is open to U.S. Residents only and is open until Tuesday, June 24th. Good luck!
Congrats to winners: Megan, Rachel B, and Beth!
