sneak peek: new trays!

Fellow gypsies!

we thought we would introduce you to each of the new products and spread a little gypsy cheer.
knowing it's been a while since we've had a contest for our most favorite gypsy fans -
we will be giving away a prize with each new product blog post over the next week or so.

new vintage stained trays:
we have been so busy in the workshop creating new surfaces to inspire your
vintage soul and get your creative juices flowing!
we are so excited about our newest trays, they are stained with a beautiful vintage feel.  
two trays are available in this new finish - the solo and the letterblock
we are going to give one of each of these trays away to two lucky winners.

just leave a comment telling us what theme you would choose if you were to win one
of these great trays 
leave your comment by October 26 at 3:00 pm CST and you will be eligible to win one of the trays!

5 fun facts about our trays:
1. each tray is hand stained and finished to create the vintage feel we all love so much!
2. the letterblock tray has 20 assorted compartments
3. solo trays hold a 4x6 photo and has three 2x2 compartments. our solo trays were a huge hit with gypsies all around the globe! so why wouldn't we add this beautiful deep stained wood to the collection? swoooon...
4. the letterblock trays feature a metal handle - perfect for hanging
5. the letterblock tray has inspired many gypsies to create every kind of project, with it's
random size slots - every project becomes unique!



we love the black and brown - but how about this new, rustic stain? we know you want to grab one right now and get creating - but just wait gypsies - there's more new for you to see!

The grain is gorgous on these stained trays. I would make a' family history' tray for my 92 year old Grandma. She is worried about the family forgeting their roots. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Dorina D said...

Very exciting and so fun. I'd love to use the letterblock tray to commemorate 55+ years of Christmas breakfast with our neighbors and family. 4th Generation now attending breakfasts.

Nancy Wethington said...

Love the vintage look of the new trays. I would mix family photos with ephemera to keep the *gypsy* look and hang it in the family room.

Kim said...

I would do something "steampunky" with my huge collection of vintage jewelry...these trays are AWESOME!!!

Donna Chaney said...

They're both gorgeous - I love the new finishes. But I have to say that I love the letterblock tray. The handle on the top is wonderful!

Heather DG said...

Love them all, but would have to go with the Letterblock tray - it looks just like the vintage letterpress drawers but it wouldn't make me queasy to alter it ;') Would have to make it Christmas of course! Thanks for the chance to win one!

Betsy said...

Perfect for the pumpkin patch photos I just took! Love the stained trays - very versatile and softer for more themes.

Yes!! I cannot get enough of your trays. I am pinning this to my Pinterest 'Printers Tray' Board.
PS love the new rustic color in the printers block style.

Worked with my first tray last month. I am truly inspired by yours. I love the stained effect!

CraftyJo said...

I love the look of the Letterblock tray, I'd be tempted to make an 'alphabet' tray, doubling-up on some of the more obscure letters(x,q, etc.) :)

margaeli said...

Love my 7 gypsies library drawer. I'd love to win the letterbox tray. Lots of fun openings to fill.......

Rita P said...

I am in LOVE!! <3

Cynthia Rahardja Clancy said...

Gorgeous! They remind me of family or childhood memories. My Mom's childhood photos need organizing. She has gorgeous tiny BW photos with lacy edges. A few of them could be displayed in the beautiful letterblock tray together with vintage ephemera and beads. So many possibilities.

Krissy Kat said...

With Christmas right around the corner, these would make WONDERFUL gifts. I think that if I won one of these, I'd choose a New Orleans theme & decorate one of these for my sister so she could showcase her trip to New Orleans...or I'd keep it for myself & do a Chicago Bears theme. :)

michelle said...

I love love love both trays but the top one is my favorite. I would love to do a tray on our marriage moments and all about our 25 years together.
