gallery night : jeff trendel

Tonight is Gallery Night and I am so proud to announce that we are featuring the fabulous work of Jeff Trendel. Jeff is a local ecoartist (and also a long-time family friend of mine). Jeff makes the most beautiful wood bowls and vessels that you'll ever see.

All of the wood used in Jeff's wood turnings is cut in urban areas under permit from the local municipalities of the Florida Keys. Do not fear, this is done with no damage to the fragile ecosystem of the Florida Keys. Jeff's eco-friendly bowls and vessels are made with beautiful rare tropical woods such as Cuban Mahogany, Red Mahoe, Jamaica Dogwood, Bustic, Mastic, Buttonwood and many others from South Florida.

Jeff's work is simply magnificent and truly amazing. If you are in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by. And if you weren't planning on being in the neighborhood, I'd adjust your plans! Jeff and I hope to see you tonight and tomorrow for the Historic Third Ward's Gallery Night.

printerette press

We have the most adorable new cards ever! Please welcome Printerette Press to Broadway Paper. I first spotted the line in May at the National Stationery Show and it was love at first sight! Check out these pictures of Printerette Press' adorable booth at the National Stationery Show. How could I not place an order with a booth like that?

Printerette Press is a Midwest company (which I love), right out of Saint Paul, Minnesota and has the sweetest, most delicate letterpress cards in all of the land! When we got our shipment in last week, we could hardly contain ourselves... and there was even a sweet personal note inside of the box too!

From confetti, chevron stripes, flowers, balloons, to preserve recipes, astrology sign cards... Printertte Press pretty much has the world of adorable/sweet/unique letterpress cards covered! See for yourself...

You can see and shop all of Printerette Press' adorable cards right here on our webstore.
