Meet Mr. Gillette, my new 1930's gentleman. He was apparently part of a display in a barbers shop on a Gillette shaving stand that unfortunately was not saved with him. I still think he looks fab though, even if he does look somewhat like John George Haigh, the Acid Bath Murderer!! He is going to be part of the display on my stand at the Vintage Fair I am attending this weekend. He is also one of the designs on my bags. Having bespoke printed bags was a little out of my budget so hubby and I hit upon the idea of designing our own. Hubby took the pictures and then printed the images on to transparent labels to be stuck on my new pink paper bags. We have tried several different images and they all look really good, I am so pleased with them. I decided I wanted bags that stood out and also had my business name on. It is also important, I think, to package up items in attractive bags.
