Vanagon Gear from Etsy

vanagon onsie
We enjoy supporting the creative and talented craftsmen and women on the Etsy marketplace. In January we purchased a batik Vanagon onsie from the seller, AppleJaxie. It finally fits Jacob, just in time for our upcoming road trip to Maine.

When my tattered wallet finally broke down a couple weeks ago, I turned to Etsy for a replacement. I particularly liked Backerton's handmade, full-grain leather wallets, which are thin by design but very functional. He prints a wide variety of old-timey images on the wallets, and while I liked many of the options, I had a custom design in mind. To my surprise, Backerton was willing to apply my imagea Vanagon blueprint, of sortsat no additional charge. I'm very happy with the results!

I'm considering making a t-shirt or hoodie with this same image, which took a good deal of effort to track down and a more time to print, scan, and enlarge. I'm now happy to share them with the Vanagon world.

Both the profile and front/back images are available for download in high(ish) resolution. The blog limits the upload size, so contact me for larger versions.
