Sustainable Style: Present and Correct

{Office in a Jar}

Now, I know I might be a bit bias, but I do feel strongly that using vintage items is a way of recycling. Things that someone think are old or out of date, that they might otherwise throw away (and add to the mounds of post-consumer waste we already produce), I think to find a home for them, or a way to reuse or repurpose them. And I especially love when the vintage item is some sort of ephemera.


A lot of the time, these old bits of paper have awesome graphics or really stunning typography that's worth preserving somehow, and I love the playful take that Present and Correct has taken with it. The store isn't exactly new to Etsy (opened in 2006), but it's new to me, and I think their whimsical take on paper is worth sharing!


My favorites are the "office in a jar" idea (pictured at the top) and the tag books (pictured below), but they have a lot of really cute and creative things that will catch your eye, so make sure and pop over to the P&C store and follow them on Twitter!

  1. So cool! Thank you for sharing this! (Althought it kinda makes me want to start hoarding bits of paper...)
