Vintage Love Saturday - Kitsch-y Crafts!

This blog post presented by my vintage shop on etsy: VintageAndSuch

These vintage craft books have such kitsch-y covers!

I love them!

As a kid I used to love going through books just like these and figuring out what could be made from the odds and ends in my house.

That was before recycling, upcycling, and refurbishing were popular words.  Back then, it was make do with what you have because very few people went out and bought things. It might not be so bad that we are returning to that way of thinking ... and using new tags such as recycling and upcycling to make that a cool thing.

These books, among others, are available in my shop VintageAndSuch.

Are you looking for rainy day activities for the kids?

Are you a teacher looking for recycling ideas?

Do you run a Guide or Scout Troop/Unit and want to teach recycling?

These books may just help you along your way.

Thanks, too, to Southern Lady's Vintage, a fellow vmteam member for this Saturday's Kitsch theme for vintage!
