Framed: 1934 Needlecraft Magazine Cover

We've been on a bit of an estate sale shopping spree lately. (Cheapest shopping spree ever, but still a spree.)

In the name of Constellation & Co. Vintage, we've been pairing lonely antique frames with unlikely ephemera to make beautiful framed art. It's been fun, and we've got more to come! The only downside is... we're having trouble parting with our creations.

This lovely damsel is from a 1934 issue of Needlecraft Magazine we discovered at an estate sale in our neighborhood. I'm in love with her blouse. Perfect summer fashion, straight from the 30's. I can't get over how lovely she is. More fun framed ephemera to come - but for now, this one is ours!

A Stellar Trade!

Recently, we had the uncommon pleasure of receiving correspondance from the proprietor of Municipal Prints Company in Brooklyn, New York. Sheldon had an inkling that his Constellation Explorer series would be right up our alley - and he was definitely right.

Sidebar: As someone who's never been to New York (shameful, I know...), this is what I picture when I think about Brooklyn. "Never fear, Brooklyn is here!"

We soon came to a happy agreement that outfitted us with this gorgeous deep navy star map...

And outfitted Sheldon with some new letterpress business cards! We really love having the opportunity to barter with our fellow artists and designers. It's a win-win!

We're enjoying our new print in the studio right now, but will soon be bringing it home to hang there. I'll make sure to update you when it's found an official place in our home.
