What could be better than the intersection of something beautiful, eco-friendly, useful, and with vintage style? Inspired by her grandparents’, Jennifer learned the value and joy of thrifting at a young age and has turned this love into a booming business selling napkins and other linens made from vintage fabrics on Etsy. She offers everything from seersucker cocktail napkins to holiday buntings to my personal favorite, cloth napkin starter sets–enough gloriously-patterned cloth napkins to make the switch from paper in your kitchen.

Olie Sylvester of Oompaul.com is supporting Little Big not once but twice with ads for two of his artistic endeavors. He carves one of a kind handmade pipes as well as hosts a podcast about all things pipe related. His pipes aren’t just functional, they are gorgeous and unique works of art. And then we have the Monstrosity series, “the pipes that ugly could not contain.” (I giggled all the way through the testimonials).

The brainchild of Oompaul’s Olie Sylvester, Fine Art for the Frugal aims to put owning works of fine art within everyone’s reach. A graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, he is the founder of Red Coral Creative. A list of Olie’s shows and awards can be found here. He practices a style of art known as Automatism , which was used by many of the early Surrealists. Automatistst produce art by allowing raw form to manifest itself without restraint or preconception. To me they look like bursts of color and emotion reflective of an inner state.
One of my best friends in the whole world, Angela is the creator of The Red Star Designs on Etsy. She has taken her passion for messing around on Photoshop and turned it into a booming business.
