This month we’ve started something new with crafternoon. Everyone is taking turns holding a crafternoon of their choice at their house, and first up was Jessee with a fun sewing party. We all brought our machines and worked on projects, Jessee taught some people new techniques, and helped Katie get her hexagon quilt all ready for quilting! It was such a fun time, so much good food, and I have to say super relaxing to pass off the hosting baton for a bit. I forgot my camera, so I only have some bad phone photos. Above you can see the divided tote I made at crafternoon & the divided tote I made to hold my crafternoon white elephant gift (it was filled with candy). Plush you can see the awesome basket I got, so many goodies! Next month I’ll remember to bring my camera and get some better photos. Katie is hosting a seed swap and garden marker making crafternoon next, I can’t wait!
Here are a few more current candy companies based out of Pennsylvania that still have vintage style packaging.
Zitners: Their butter krak eggs are delicious, and their bunny mascot is the cutest.
Lerro- was started in 1800, and have really cute boxes for their decorated eggs.
Peeps are also a Pennsylvania company, check out some of their old packaging from 1953 here. I wish they still made whatever the sprinkled things in the middle are, they look quite colorful.
If you know of any other candy companies that still offer classic packaging and graphics I’d love to hear about them!
I found myself not using the feature for an everyday bag. I like to keep everything in my wallet because I change purses so often, so if I made this bag again I would just add a few zippered sections under the pouch instead. Ive already started on my March bag, I am just waiting on some hardware to arrive so I can finish it up.
