Flappers

Flappers challenged social standards with their short, bobbed hair and their new fashion sense. The roaring 1920s ushered public bathing practices. The historic Pavilion in Newport Beach, California, was built in 1906. It was designed as a bathing house for individuals to change into their beach attire.
The beach culture developed with more revealing swimsuits. Nationwide, police often cited women without conservative standards. Yet, these women created a more relaxed, anti-corset look that influenced women’s everyday style.
This photo was taken on June 20, 1920 for the Bathing Girl Parade at the Balboa Pavilion in Newport Beach, California.

Daisy Chain

“I pluck’d a daisy, I gave it to you.”
-Tennyson, The Daisy ???

We love using an instant photo camera and pinning them to a board (literally!) with our crocheted daisy chain. These handcrafted flowers and miniature pins capture and share your favorite memories. You can string photos, cards, or any precious memento. The daisy chain measures five feet long. It comes with four crocheted flowers and five miniature clothespins that measure 1.25″. It’s a great gift for any occasion.
