Tins, magnets, and cufflinks oh my! Sandy, the talented maven behind Firefly notes, is making this year’s search for quirky stocking stuffers less of a pain, and more of a treasure hunt. Inspired by the often “old, odd, and forgotten tales” of previously loved relics, Sandy uses curated images to create original and intriguing trinkets.
Working out of her home, Sandy juggles the tasks of being a mom, an owner, a curator, and a designer. Applaudable, to say the least. Innately, Sandy set up her popular Etsy shop in late 2008 in order to help generate income for her growing family, and to “stay creative as a new mom.“ While reaping the benefits of immediate feedback from customers, which is 100% positive by the way, Sandy is consistently adding fresh and covetable items to her roster. The craft enthusiast promises that Firefly Notes will soon be releasing a “whole line of vintage inspired goodies for the proud Vancouverite and discerning tourist.” Mark your moleskins folks!
Whether you are shopping for your eighty-year-old neighbor, or your twenty-one-year-old niece, Firefly Notes is a one-stop shop. Think vintage 1917 Mercury dime coin cufflinks, sheet music superimposed with detailed and whimsical prints of dandelions, and mint tins with vintage images of Victorian styled cats. With modest pricing and a wide variety of choice, Firefly Notes will surely appease even the pickiest of pals on your holiday shopping list. Browsing her site is a treat within itself, and truly showcases Sandy’s passion to utilize what the past has left us with, but more importantly reminds us what is old can always be new again.
