Introducing: Colored Vinyl Cuffs!
This last week, I somehow managed to find the time (while working on the big catalog order for Uncommon Goods) to launch a brand new product line - colored cuffs! These new Roman Record Cuffs are made from fabulous vintage colored vinyl records.
There are two types of cuffs - a larger Men's style which includes the original record label, and a smaller Women's style. I am selling them online as pairs. Each pair is made from one 45 rpm record.
A sweet gift for that DJ, musician, record collector, punk rocker, goth chick, eco fashionista, or Roman gladiator in your life!
How did this come about, you may ask? Well, I was lucky enough to be contacted back in November by Rebecca Pearcy, owner of Queen Bee Creations. She used to make bags like this one......but has discontinued the line. She was also getting ready to have a baby, move her studio location, and open up a retail store. She had a lot of leftover 45's to get rid of, and made a deal with me so that I would provide her with cuffs for her new store in exchange for receiving a mother lode of awesome colored vinyl. SCORE!
You can now find these cuffs in Portland at Queen Bee Studio & Store (3961 N. Williams, Ste. 101), and at Pop-Up Shoppe (919 N.W. 23rd Ave.) . You can also order them from my Etsy shop.
