It all began with a stack of vintage sheet music at a garage sale. I think I paid $15 for about 50 songs: torn, battered, and written on by careless past owners. You can hardly blame them. After all, they used to be a dime a dozen. They had no idea that such beautiful artwork would not be around forever.

I started selling the antique sheet music, but there were so many pieces that were too damaged or marked up to sell. So I started scanning and tweaking and retouching the digital copies, and darned if I didn't love what I was doing!

Eventually I tripped over some antique postcards and newspapers, adding them to my digital collection. Now we have a large collection of paper ephemera: Victoriana, vintage sheet music, antique newspapers, postcards, postage stamps, old photos, vintage advertising, old wallpaper. Each original is at least 75 years old, and these images were created to preserve history. Each item is scanned and tidied, but evidence of age has been left intact, including asymmetry, page tears, fading and bits where the original printing may have gone awry.

At one time Zadoodle sold tangible vintage, but now our focus is entirely digital. To get my vintage fix, I opened another shop where I upcycle vintage and repurposed junk, turning them into recycled, rustic home decor. You can find that shop at http://etsy.com/shop/thesalvagedplanet .

After a great many adventures and relocations, our family is putting down roots in Austin, Texas. The Salvaged Planet, LLC was formed in 2017 for the purpose of managing both shops and to continue to advocate my dedication to *save the planet... buy salvaged*.

this is not copycat vintage. she is the real thing, and will not apologize for her flaws.

Terms of Use

You are purchasing a license to download, print and use my vintage images for your own personal or SMALL commercial use. Any redistribution or sale AS IS in printed or electronic form is strictly prohibited.

Origins

My digital images are based on my own personal collection of antique paper ephemera. Each original document is at least 75 years old and to my knowledge is not readily available anywhere else, so these images are created as a way of celebrating and preserving history. Each image contains imperfections in printing or the natural aging process, left intact as a badge of authenticity so you know you are getting a preserved piece of history.
