Valentine’s Day Goodies Now Available at Reading Frenzy

Portland’s darling gem of an indie bookstore, Reading Frenzy, is now carrying some items from Flapper Girl’s 2010 Valentine Collection. I went in yesterday and dropped off some sets of Flapper Cupcake Picks, Flapper Ribbon Ornaments, and Make-Your-Own Retro Pinup Greeting Kits.

The greeting card kits are being sold exclusively at Reading Frenzy. You can’t find them anywhere else—not even in the Flapper Girl Boutique.

Each kit contains everything you need to make your own one-of-a-kind valentine:

• 2 pieces of vintage unbleached card stock
• 1 retro pinup cut from upcycled (eco-friendly) paper goods
• 2 trims—1 piece of velvet ribbon & 1 piece of wide lace trim
• 3 various classy vintage buttons
• 1 mini fancy ribbon bow

In other Reading Frenzy news, next week the shop will be hosting it’s 11th Annual Valentine’s Invitational. Dozens of artists have contributed handmade valentines and valentine-themed artwork to benefit the Special Education PTA of Portland (SEPTAP).

Next Thursday, February 4, all the artwork will up on display at Reading Frenzy. You can swing by between 6-9pm to check it all out, and bid on anything that strikes your fancy.

Yours truly has a piece in this show. It’s called Masked Flapper, and bidding will start at $9 (half of the retail price $18). Be sure to check out Reading Frenzy’s website for more details, and a full list of participating artists.
