Sweet Paul Makerie!


We are extremely honored to have been asked to teach a workshop this year for the Sweet Paul Makerie in Philly.  It's been a while since I've attended an art retreat such as this and Ben and I are both really excited!  

If you're unfamiliar with Sweet Paul magazine, you HAVE to check it out!  It's a gorgeous and inspiring lifestyle magazine and just one peek and you'll know how beautiful and amazing this event will be!  It's taking place at Terrain and Anthropologie headquarters (hello...two of the ultimate inspiration gurus!) and will be infused with their look and feel.  It will be like stepping into the Sweet Paul magazine, an Anthropologie catalog shoot, and Terrain's website - all at the same time.  

I am giddy with excitement to see all the fabulous events, speakers and activities they've put together.  Probably best of all is the creative community that connects like minds together...I am very much in need of a dose of that!

Ben and I hope to see you there!!  :)

Valentine's Day Blog Sale!

 Cupid Sled - SOLD

Happy pre-Valentine's Day Everyone!
Since the theme of V-Day is "Love" I always like reflecting on the things that I love so much in this world.  This time last year we were just starting to get acquainted with an incredibly precious tiny person who filled our hearts with an unimaginable feeling that we have never felt before.  And in my opinion, there's no other that compares.  So I wanted to let you know that when I created these darling treasures, my thoughts and inspiration came from my sweet little Olive. :-) 

We hope you enjoy!

As usual, this blog sale offers first dibs on our new spun cotton one-of-kind figures. If you see something(s) you love, just email us at crystalandben@vintagebycrystal.com and we'll let you know if they're still available. First come first served! we'll update item status in this post as often as we can to make it easier for you to know what's available. Items often get scooped up quickly, so make your selection as swiftly as you can, you can always add available pieces to your order later.  Also feel free to include second choices in case your first choice is unavailable, but make sure you label them "second choice".  Click on photos to enlarge.

Shipping is $3.50 for one item and $1 per additional item up to $6.50, then additional pieces are free.  All paid orders will ship out immediately via first class mail and should arrive within a few days.  If you prefer 1-3 day priority shipping, please let us know (there will be an additional $3 charge).  We send Paypal invoices via email unless you specify that you'd rather pay via check.
