for our best friends

Lucy, Ginger, and Jack.

Thanks to the generosity of Lizzie of and The Vintage Traveler blog (which you really should be reading if you are not already--it is a treasure trove of information, photos and great stuff in general), we will be offering a selection of items in the Etsy shop for charity. When one of these items sells, we'll be donating 50% of the purchase price to Denver's MaxFund no-kill animal shelter. We chose the MaxFund because it's where my parents adopted both of their wonderful dogs, Ginger and Jack. (Andy and I adopted Lucy from the Grand Rapids city pound, and, well, we just love animals--as does Lizzie.)

I'll be rolling the MaxFund donation items out gradually. There are a few in this preview (I'll give indications which ones are), and there will also be information in the Etsy listings for these items.

Enormous gratitude to Lizzie for making this possible!

  1. oh my god. the bay city rollers. I remember my Mum buying my sister an entire plaid outfit and BCR jigsaw...I was annoyed because I only got a muppets jigsaw, apparently I haven't let it go.....

  2. This is wonderful K!
    And my interest in that black dress is extremely high!

  3. Thanks for doing this, Karen. I'm really excited about it! I can't wait to see the MaxFund listings.

  4. that blue 40's dress is stunning! I'm going to keep an eye out for that in your shop. fabulous idea too.

  5. The things looks super!! Thanks again, Karen, for this sweet project.

  6. That black and white dress is adorable. We have friends who have adopted from Max Fund. What a great idea. I often buy furniture from a woman here in Denver who sells mid-century modern furniture from her home and some of the money goes to Max Fund.
