Rag + Bone Bindery – Save 20%

While visting the RISD alum show this past weekend, I had to stop by the booth of Rag + Bone Bindery to check out their handbound books. Located just outside of Providence, this bindery creates gorgeous albums, journals, baby books, guest books, and many additional bindings that you’ll love. While examining them at the show, I was deeply impressed by their craftsmanship and beauty because it’s not often you find books like this from a good old fashioned bindery! They truly take pride in their work, and based upon their success and experience in the business (circa 1991), customers appreciate it and share their respect for the handcrafted book, too. Would you like to get your hands on a few? My favorites: the accordion books, photo binders, and the digital photo albums. When you find something you like, remember to take 20% off because that’s the Rag + Bone Bindery gift from them to you!

Who: Rag + Bone Bindery
What: 20% off all merchandise for decor8 readers.
When: Valid until December 31st, 2006
How: Use code ‘decor8save20′ when you check out.

Thank you for this special offer, Rag + Bone!

Psst: Speaking of the RISD alum show, I’ll be back later this week to showcase a few of my favorites from the exhibit with links – so stick around!

Michelle Caplan – Save 10%


Mixed media collage artist Michelle Caplan is on fire! Not only does she seem to exhibit at every craft show known to man in LA, but she was invited to show her work at the Apartment Therapy party in LA (she was a featured artist alongside Henry Road at Vanessa De Vargas’ showroom Turquoise. View photos here.) and had a two page spread in the November issue of Real Simple magazine (here’s one page of the feature). Oh, and while scouring the web to dig some more information about Michelle for you, I found a satisfied customer of hers from Brooklyn, check this out.

Michelle and I are actually friends, forming our bond through her art, which I started collecting in 2005 while searching for many years for collage art that spoke to me that I could also afford. Ever since finding Michelle, not only do my walls look fabulous (thanks!), but I’ve gained a good friend. From badges to bookplates, and of course, collage art in all sizes, visit her etsy store to give the gift of art (or to keep it for yourself!)

Who: Michelle Caplan
What: 10% off all merchandise for decor8 readers
When: Valid until December 20th, 2006
How: Enter ‘DECOR8′ at check out in the message to seller box, and wait for a revised invoice.

psst: If there are any Smiths/Morrissey fans reading this, doesn’t the top left image look exactly like something you would’ve seen on a Smiths cover?? Totally!

A very special thanks to Michelle for this great offer!
