newspaper san diego vista tote bag recycled newsboy

The Vista Press was the northern San Diego city’s newspaper for 69 years, beginning in 1926.  I found this old newsboy’s canvas vest at an antiques shop in Vista.  Designed to be worn over the carrier’s neck, it held papers in front & back pockets.  I shipped it off to my infinitely talented sister to reimagine it as something new …

After giving the vest a good cleaning, she salvaged every part of it to create two fab totebags.  She inserted small magnets where the original d-rings were as closures.  The handles were made from leftover dark brown carpet binding, which she bleached to match the color of the logo.  All lovingly created on Mom’s 1960’s sewing machine (on which she made our baby clothes!).

A classic workhorse being put back into service!

A Scientific Approach

The striking home of one of my good clients was featured on the cover of the Los Angeles Times Home Section recently.  David, a doctor, and his wife Linda favored the clean lines of vintage medical, laboratory & industrial furnishings.  Throughout the remodel, I sourced 1940’s architect’s stools (all a little different), early medical lighting, military surplus tables, industrial cabinets, hutches & shelving units.  All my finds were meticulously refurbished and reworked to adapt to their contemporary Del Mar home.

It was, most definitely, a successful operation!
