One of the coolest gifts that I have ever received was a little jar of random vintage goodness from my former boss, Amy. It was filled with crazy buttons, findings and other odd stuff. This was probably 2 years ago, but I consulted this jar just last week when I was stuck on a project. A few days later, through the magic of the Internet, I found Amy and her new Etsy shop, Apvintage! She makes jewelry out of this random vintage goodness, and I just had to share.

Please Stand By

As some of you may have noticed, the main website is down right now. I am pretty www-stupid, so I have a team of other folks working on it. I will make a big announcement when the new site is ready! Thanks!

Matt from Etsy

We (BEST) were lucky enough to have a little date with Matt, VP of Communications of Etsy this weekend! I was a little (ok, a lot) late so I missed out on the group picture, but Matt was awesome and wants to come for a proper dinner with us sometime in the future! Thanks Matt!

Checking in.

Sorry I have been M.I.A. - Life is a little crazy in Broken Plate land. I am busily filling some wholesale orders since Crafty Bastards cleaned me out a bit! Bastards was awesome despite the random rain showers. Shoppers were prepared with umbrellas and were not going to let a little rain hold them back. It was hardcore. To see a whole bunch of photos from the day, check out some on Flickr here . As soon as Tya gives up the goods, I will post some of my own. The photo above is from sande1974 on flickr.
