Ghosts of Sweden

My better-business-half, Micah, just got back from a buying trip in Sweden. Fancy, huh? You can get your mitts on some fantastic vintage Swedish wares atRusset and Empire when we host an equally fancy pop-up sale. Details on that soon.
I was rummaging through the stuff she brought back and found a box of glass negatives (there is probably a better, more technical, term for these things?). The point is, negatives look creepy, and antique negatives from foreign lands look the creepiest.
Your eyeballs, sir!
There are three more of this guy chillin with his flowers and flags.

I'm Back!

After a comedy of errors I'm back! I spent a week crawling over dirty couches, eating dozens of hot dogs, and what seems like an endless number of flights/customs forms. You're basically going to die when you see what I brought back, and I will basically die if my luggage ever shows up in Canada, but that's a whole other blog post. For now I leave you with this beautiful portrait of me in a Swedish Stadesmissionen in a sweatshirt.

While wearing this VINTAGE Mary Poppins hat with matching lipstick? Ugh.

Let the puns begin!
