Announcement   After working at Bowne & Co. Stationers, learning the art of letterpress printing and helping to run the lovely 19th Century printshop I've returned to an old love, styling and props. I am running an unusual and sweet prop house.

If you'd like to order a shoebag, please convo us. To check out what inspired us in the past...

I bought this for my niece and she LOVES it. I too have one as does my daughter and we use it on all of our trips. Great craftmanship.

Small. Happy. Growing.
********************
Two cousins started Baba's 2nd, our small design company in New York City. Fela loves to work with paper and discovering beautiful props. Nepreil is a clothing designer and seamstress extraordinaire (she obviously inherited all the sewing genes from our Grandma).

We listen to lots of jazz vocalists, love weekly shopping at the Food Co-op , watching English tv (everything from Masterpiece Theater to Coupling to Bleak House..."Rent!"), dancing salsa, samba and making fantastic things with our hands while listening to This American Life.

Fela was lucky enough to work at the oldest stationer/letterpress shop in NYC for quite some time before returning to her former career - sourcing beautiful objects for stylists. Fela has decided to share some of the most special pieces on this etsy site.

We still see letterpress in our future (the great Kazoo told us so), though it may be down the road.

**************************
In 2007, we started PAPEL, a line of handmade limited edition cards and stationery. When the stars align and we feel the spark, we will introduce a limited edition run of cards.

For anyone addicted to the SHOE-IN, the couture shoebag made from special fabric, please specify if you'd like to order one with a divider (to keep your shoes separate but equal) or without. As always, use our shoebags to protect the unsung heroes of your day - your shoes! All of our cards and bags are handmade in our little Queens studio.
