Cartolina Market update

I've been collecting misc. vintage, wooden boxes since last summer when I decided that we should have the Cartolina market tent. I've been quite successful in finding great old wooden, tool boxes and file drawers to use as card displays over the last few months and I think the Cartolina Big Top will look fabulously vintage. I'm not sure when we will debut - I have a feeling it won't be at our local Wednesday market here in Nelson because it doesn't start until June but I think we might launch at the Kelowna farmers market which is a very vibrant and thriving Saturday morning market in the Okanagan - I'll keep you posted. Here are some fine examples of the kind of boxes I've been coveting - from Sadie Olive.

I'm so happy I found this blog; there is not a single thing in your archives I don't enjoy! I've been working on a couple projects inspired by vintage circus banners and type and this has become a great resource for inspiration. :)
