Mugwump & Flood

rainbow sneakers on a rainbow mat

More shoes! This time they are not being worn by me. My friend Kate's rainbow-ish sneakers look good on the equally colorful doormat.

This morning we biked over to Portland's Saturday Market. There were two fashion-y vendors that appealed to me very much, so I snagged their business cards. Happily, both of them have websites! First up is Mugwump, featuring purses made out of children's books:

They're so adorable! If only they were also functional. I need my bags to be durable and have pockets and stuff. Anyway, next is Flood Clothing:

Yup, that's an upcycled patchwork wedding dress!

  3. *scream* those bags!!!! :-D

    I love the green dude's outfit. It's very RPG, somehow! Rangery, perhaps... someone give that man a crossbow!

  5. I love the idea of using children's books as a purse! I think it's a good use of books that may have gotten ripped up or damaged (my daughter has torn her fair share of pages out of books from when she was a little bit younger).

    Also, I am totally in love with Flood's clothes. Like, omg!

    1. Totally! I bet you could pick up a bunch of semi-destroyed at a preschool, or even just at a thrift store.
