It’s official–I’m starting a collection of ’80s merchandise that showcases the decade’s design highlights! My inspiration is Il Giardino Luxor, who I want to acknowledge for making today’s blog post possible. Thank you for bringing back that giddy feeling of waiting in line at the school store in hopes of purchasing the latest in pastel pencils and erasers. And for reminding me of the anticipation of opening a grab bag purchased at my favorite ’80s tween store, eager to see what stickers and shiny school supplies awaited me…

A little happy for your Monday!
