I know I’ve been talking about rock posters since May, but I love these gorgeously illustrated, limited edition works of art because they are affordable and do so much to add color and interest to a room. I could seriously collect if I had enough wall space, but I think a few in the home is plenty for me right now.
One of my favorite music stores is Boston’s own Newbury Comics, a great source for music, comics, Japanese toys, DVD’s, and now – rock posters, which they carry both in-store and online.In addition to what’s available at Newbury Comics, you can visit some of these talented peeps that create rock posters by the pound. I’m sure you’ll love browsing these links, so enjoy!

Sofia Barao is a mixed media artist and accessories designer living near Paris. She has an etsy store where she recently started offering vintage French fashion and ad prints along with wallpaper scrap packs (great for mini projects… You could design your own closet door in the spirit of Ms. Posie!). These prints need to be framed and displayed, don’t you think? So pretty!
Pretty things, including French notebooks and things, from the lovely Lapin & Me in England.
Madeleine, and her daughter Delphine, created this special online boutique to present the most beautiful products, items both cherished and unique. Combining childhood memories and a touch of nostalgia, these sweet gifts warm the heart and demonstrate the care that both mother and little girl put into hand selecting everything offered in their little corner of the web.
Here are some of my favorites. See if you can find a few of your own here.
