I saw this on Motionographer today:


This is an awesome short by Ned Wenlock who seems to be a master at the digital rolling paper with drop shadow look. It’s also very 50s cartoon ish (which obviously i’m obsessed with!)

Fiona from Fiiimac Vintage on Etsy was nice enough to let me interview her this week. Here’s what she had to say:

CuteCartoonPortraits: Where do you find you items?

Fiona: First: in my dreams. Fortunately, I come on wonderful vintage stuff pretty easily in reality; first, I have close friends involved in the antique trade, and often have early access to estate sales, which yield the most incredible things. Secondly, I travel often, and always take the opportunity to poke around the bins and boxes of thrift stores and opp shops in every weird corner of the world when possible!

CCP: What made you get into selling on Etsy?

F: I was living at home, and my dad started to complain of the mess my collection of footwear was making in the front hall. I was obsessed even then with making the ultimate vintage score, and when I got all my boots together that day, the resulting pile was embarrassingly huge. So my original stock was made up of my own stuff! After it became clear that I wasn’t going to stop vintage hunting, I decided to start buying stock exclusively for the shop, and the rest is history.

CCP: Are you a cowgirl?

F: Haha, I wish. I’m from snowy eastern Canada, and my cowboy boot love is purely impractical.

CCP: What inspires you?

Lots of things inspire me! When I’m picking my stock, I’m always wooed by leather, especially great, thick, worn-in, cognac and sienna browns. If I find a fantastic golden brown, high quality pair of 60s leather boots, I have to buy them, even if they’re in some unusual size, like women’s 5 or men’s 13. And I have a ton of favourite stores on Etsy; currently, I’m loving the re-purposed coat leather and carpet bags made by Hoakon + Helga and Northernlights respectively. Also, of course, all the beautiful vintage sellers of the Vintage Fashion Team, who are always wonderful.

Thanks Fiona for taking the time out to interview!
