Hippy Gift Shop - Featured Store of the Week


Pixie is a Pro Zazzle Designer, who enjoys running her two stores, one of which we are featuring this week called the 'Hippy Gift Shop'.  Pixie is also a very keen photographer and can always be found out and about with her camera in her spare time.

With a keen eye for detail and a great sense of fun you can see why her Hippy Gift Shop is alive with colour, befitting the variety of styles and artform in her designs, which range from funky-hippy to gothic, and ethnic / new age.

The sense of fun in the designs is not only prelevant in the vibrant colours but also the themes.  One popular design example to look out for is the family of cute kawaii alien monsters cartoon that you will see on speakers and other items. Other designs feature her fractal artwork and more psychadelic graphics.

Check out our full feature article on the 'Hippy Gift Shop' to see what delightful surprises you might enjoy discovering.

Art Gift Ideas: Artist Spotlight: Ulrich Schwanitz - You & Me - The Scrappies Bronze Figurines

Ulrich Schwanitz from Venlo, Netherlands creates bronze sculptures and pendants from 3D digital designs. His latest creation, the "You & Me" figurines from the "Scrappies" series represent love, affection and mutual commitment - emotions that everyone values and never loses their significance.

The bronze figurines are inspired by everything you can find in a scrapyard: old nuts and bolts, tin cans, pipes, coils, parts of ball bearings, but they are actually manufactured in a novel "3D printing" process. Ulrich is now running a campaign at Indiegogo and will personalize the figurines with two initials of your choice.
