Retro Pets Purses


So let me tell you the story about finding these AMAZING purses.I had already spend almost 3 full days walking the floor at Global Pet Expo (an industry only expo for vendors and buyers) trying to find the perfect pet clothing line to work with for Spring Fashionista. Ok so that wasn’t my only goal there I did have a job to get done but it was in the back of my mind to include that in the list of things I was looking for. So by the time day three came around and my feet felt like they were going to fall off and still without a sponsor for this event I was not that optimistic about my chances of finding anyone. And certainly not in time to make it into the Fashionista Spring LookBook. But it was like the seas parted and right there on the side of a booth were these purses.

Finally I had found the perfect addition to the event. Something all Fashionistas could appreciate. A purse. I was in love. I knew I NEEDED to make it happen. So for the first time during the entire event I said I have to have one. But alas I couldn’t even purchase one on my own. All she had were floor samples and she needed to box them back up and ship them to her next trade show. Literally they were the prototype samples. So I spent some more time at the booth trying to get to know the artist and figure out how I could make her my sponsor for Fashionista. Then she realized I didn’t need the product by today to put on a table or add to a basket for a Giveaway prize at a physical event, that she would have some extra lead time to get it ready and sent out. And guess what Krista the artist behind Retro Pet said she would do it!

Krista is absolutely adorable. Even after 3 days of standing on her feet from 8am – 5pm she was smiling and bubbly.
A little bit about Krista written by Krista – Santa Fe artist Krista Brooks has a passion for all things vintage. At Georgia State University in Atlanta, while working on her graphic design BFA, she would skip lunch to visit the bookstore and pick up works on vintage design collections. These books opened a new world to her, as she fell for the opulent cigar labels, elegant art deco posters, and whimsical matchbook covers of early 20th century design. In 1995, while standing in her bare apartment in her new town in New Mexico, she was inspired to make her first retro paintings. “I pored through my books and found the images I loved best, then painted them large, on masonite or old wood and antiqued them.” Soon after, her friend Jason approached her with the idea of painting his Jack Russell terrier, Fergus. “I figured why not do it as a beer label, Flying Fergus Pale Ale – Good Dog Good Beer, with his little dog leaping through the center?” This became her first Retro Pets design, and in 1998 sparked the idea to take commissions for vintage pet paintings.



What did Krista agree to sponsor? One of her Swarovski encrusted purses full of her Retro Pet Design Buttons. At Global Pet Expo Retro Pets was giving retailers these buttons just for stopping by and she had lines down the row of people waiting for them. They all put them on their Expo Passes but they would be adorable on your child’s backpack like you see in the picture above or a few on a belt or on your purse like I have mine (not the purse I am giving away unfortunately). I could see the buttons on a pair of keds too. They would also make a fun party favor and at about $1.50 each its no surprise that they fly off retailers shelves. And why she could take orders quick enough for her amazing brand new purses. I LOVE THEM and I know you will too!

The Prize:
One Swarovski Crystal encrusted Retro Pets Purse by LittleEarth (winner choice from prints available at the time of the win) filled with Retro Pets Buttons in an assortment of dog and cat designs.

    Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, is a big problem in
    China. 1% to 2% The OBR forecasts are similar to those made in November quick loans and are higher than the year before.
    This is basically driven by financial mathematics, because, at lower interest rates, are difficult
    to restructure and rebalance its economy.
