Flea market finds to high-end product

by Jane Button on October 26, 2010

When I saw this bag shown on Anthropologie – I knew I had to show it to you.

I just love how the bag was crafted from vintage oil paintings found in flea markets. It’s great inspiration about how you can be creative, green and make money all at the same time. Not only is it an extremely creative idea – but look where it’s ended up as “one-of-a-kind” in an on-line store as magnificent as Anthropologie!

It just goes to show you that your creativity can make money – you don’t have to be a “cookie cutter” business or mass product to sell to stores anymore.

The bag has a standard pattern (template) – but each piece of “fabric” is different. Who doesn't like one-of-a-kind when it comes to carrying a bag?

What ideas does this give you? Use your imagination – old sweaters, quilts, dresses…the only limit is your imagination.
