Greetings from Georgia, USA.
Collecting vintage vinyl records is an enjoyable hobby of mine; I have about 1000 albums in my collection. Now I'd like to share some of that joy with you, & put a modern day spin on housewares, gift baskets, home & office décor… using recycled VINYL RECORDS. These music icons/relics of yesteryear, are now seeing the light of day as FUNtional works of art, that retain the look and feel of their previously enjoyed, grooved & groovy Grooves. Each one begins it's new life getting cleaned & shined up, with a (home-made) environmentally friendly cleaner/disinfectant. The original label is sure to retain its integrity & historic appeal because it's hand sealed with 2 coats of permanent (water-based) gloss protectant (on both sides of the label.)
Each record bowl is unique but handmade into stackable, refined, star shapes. I use several around my home, work studio & office, as “catch alls”. You know… similar to that drawer in which you throw all those little odds & ends in. You'll find these bowls are GREAT for holding ALL kinds of items, and you’ll see that each of the 7 grooves/curves of its shape seem to be made just for that reason. Surprising at how much each record holds. VERY FUNtional!
Also, on a personal note; it was 5 years ago, I discovered the benefits of making custom gift baskets, because these particular people I was given the task to pick out gifts for that Christmas “literally had everything”, (or thought they did -ha!) Well, I decided to make them gift baskets. I went to a “World Market Store-one of those eclectic import stores” picked up little items of exotic candies & foods, and then placed selections in record bowl gift baskets.” (REAL Big hit!) (I still go to the "Everything's a Dollar Store" often and gather little goodies to make, <affordable, & fun/useful> gift baskets.) **So useful gift idea-- don’t place gift basket selections in a tired rattan basket that will make its way to the pile of next year's thrift store donations. Instead give a gift they will keep, use, and remember your thoughtfulness & originality, for years to come! BTW, the Mylar wrap used to encase the gift baskets, in pic on right, was bought at Wal-Mart, and at the “Dollar Store”, on the cheap. Here's another idea - tailor your gift basket to fit the recipients’ personality-for example, for a Groovy Gardener- perhaps line record bowl with dried sphagnum moss, place in a garden trowel, packs of flower/vegetable seeds, colorful gardening gloves, a how-to book….and use a natural element, such as rattan, or a pretty green ribbon, to tie the bow, - (bowl can then be used afterwards to display a houseplant). Or as a recent customer mentioned as a gift for her teenage nephews- a movie soundtrack Record bowl, & place inside a couple of local movie Theatre Tickets (or gift card), a pack of microwave popcorn, and/or varieties of gourmet popcorn seasonings, a DVD, (or old VHS tape from a thrift store-as a gag gift), then top it off with classic theatre candies: Twizzlers, Tootsie Rolls, Raisinettes... What are some of your ideas??
Your set of 6 vinyl record bowl comes with the “easy-care instructions” on a pretty handmade recycled-paper tag, (which will work double time, because you may use its back side as a gift/note tag.) **If you need more than the one (1) care tag- Leave me a message in the "note to seller" box. THANKS!
