Now You’ve Done It – The No Pattern Required Store Is Open!

Check this out, guys.  I finally got my act together and opened an online store!  I am pretty excited about it, because it is stand alone , and that is something I worked really hard on.  So, come and visit Mid-Century Mine!

I know what you are thinking, “Isn’t that totally selling out? I thought you were just about the joy of Mid-Century!” We-e-e-e-el, I guess it is kind of selling out.  On the other hand, the shop will help support two great things. 1. The costs of running this blog. 2. The costs of weird food for the Mid-Century Menu. And as an added bonus, you guys will be able to snatch up all the great stuff I don’t have room for anymore!  See, win, win!

All the new shop items will be posted every Thursday, so be sure to check back. Oh, and because the shop is brand new, and I love my readers so much, I am activating a 15% off coupon code for blog readers. Just type NPR15 in a checkout, and you get the discount!  Also, be kind if you encounter technical difficulties.  This is the shop’s first day, and it is a little nervous.

Here are some of the items for sale right now!

A MIB Dixie cup holder! Check it out here.

This really cool, pristine lunch/picnic set from Universal.  Take a look, here!

Coming soon: Tons of vintage patterns, vintage dresses, and many Mid-Century Menu cookbooks!

    I have an etsy store & it’s so fun; in my mind I pretend it’s a cute, brick & mortar boutique 😉

    Oooh, I am excited! Do you ship to Canada?

    For some reason, it was asking me for a username and password on each new page that I clicked on. I cancelled it, and was still able to browse, but just FYI.
