Thought Shapes' vintage clothing section!

Ok. this is the last post I'll do about Thought Shapes for awhile, I promise!
I just wanted to let you guys know that I have now added a section of clothing that is from my closet, some new and lots of vintage as well. There is a tonne of stuff with bright colors and bold patterns, so if that's your jam, don't miss out!

Kitsch galore.

Well folks,  just a friendly reminder that as of now the housewares are live over at Thought Shapes!
Remember: if you live in Winnipeg, chose the pick-up or delivery option to save yourself a couple of bucks!
As an added bonus, I'm offering $10 off all sweatshirts for two days using the code: TSLOVE

Thought Shapes goes vintage.

Hey guys, just wanted to say that I've been blown away by your support over the past two months with my sweatshirts over at Thought Shapes! I'm still having a lot of fun with it and have lots of exciting things in the works!
Tomorrow at noon I will be launching a new and temporary section in the shop featuring vintage housewares that I have collected over the years. Last week I spent an entire day purging my closets, drawers and cupboards and shelves and was overwhelmed at just how much stuff I have. It's so unnecessary to have so much, and I thought it would be fun to get it into good homes!
I have been collecting this stuff for as long as I can remember and am pretty bummed to have to part with it but i don't have a choice at this point, I simply don't have the room for it all anymore. There is a tonne of brightly coloured pretty kitschy stuff from the 1950's-1970's and I hope you love it all as much as I do!

On Friday I will be adding a huge vintage clothing section as well and there will be clothes from size x-small to large, and everything is just one of a kind, so once it's gone, it's gone! 

I have also teamed up with my sister Megan who is ridiculously talented in so many ways and will be releasing a bunch of hand-drawn and screen printed sweatshirts like this one of Coach Taylor from Friday Night Lights! I'm so happy with the way that it turned out and am so thrilled to share the other ones that she's been working on! There will only be a limited run of each sweatshirt available, and I'll be sharing more info on these in the next couple of weeks!

Since Parenthood (one of the best shows on television in my opinion) is coming to an end, I whipped up this little number the other night and after reading all of your wonderful comments I decided to make a bunch to sell! If you are interested, go to Thought Shapes' Instagram and check it out!

Alright, I need to get back to work listing all this fun stuff! Be sure to hop on by tomorrow! I will post the link here as well as on my Instagram account.

What Erin's been up to.

Well, as you know, this past month has been a bit of a game changer for me. Not only did I quit my job, and close the store, but I also turned 30! Pre-ty pumped to put 2014 behind me and start off on the right foot with this new year. 
Well friends, it's stupid cold out there. I'm talking crazy deep freeze. If you have to go outside, bundle up! I'm getting pretty good at the whole hidden long johns look.

It's really crazy how fast Christmas flew by this year!

The best birthday card I got this year. Ha!

I worked my last shift at Market Burger a few weeks back, and I'm really going to miss that place. 

I really wanted to steal this cup on my last day, but instead grabbed a quick pic of it and put it back on the shelf.

One of my favourite gifts form my parents this year.
If this bright vintage spice rack doesn't cheer you up, I'm not sure what will. 

Optimus Prime at Christmas time!

In the midst of all the chaos that was December, my best ladies Zoe & Stef and I found time to do our Christmas. Naturally there was wine and lots of laughter, and the sweatshirts that I made them were a huge hit!

It's been a long, extremely cold couple of weeks around these parts.

Well folks, that's all I got for now. Have a great week!

XO, Erin
