A masterfully edited selection of vintage school-related ephemera. These sets include a variety of nostalgic paper things, from Scantron cards to office passes and yearbook photos. Each set is a little different to the one photographed but will include versions of the same items.
Feed the Birdies is a tiny little ephemera shop deep in the heart of Texas. Birdie Curran, owner, has been curating unique papers for over ten years, by scouring estates, antique malls, and flea markets in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Growing up helping her grandma in her fabric shop, The Sewing Box, Birdie remembers being able to write out sales tickets and playing "office" with old notepads and pens at the telephone table. She's always been drawn to paper and writing instruments of all kinds; she always chose those over toys as a kid! She volunteers time and donates stationery to local letter writing events and also provides collage ephemera to the art program on her high school campus (business teacher by day!). She's currently pursuing her life coaching certification, which will bring the dream of owning a store front closer to realization; a place where people gather, create journals and paper projects with a purpose, while building a tribe of friendships. Each piece of ephemera is rescued with a vision of a connection through creativity and purpose, for people AND the paper.
