Souvenirs; Round Three!

Fresh out of art school my first job was designing and hand-cutting silk screens for t-shirts, bumper stickers, buttons, tea towels, and (are you ready?) souvenir pennants! Does anyone even remember pennants? If I can get down and be humble I will dig out, from the depths of my archives, some of these items and show you images in a future post, but don't hold your breath!
When I came on board Irwin Specialties (founded in 1926) it was a division of Irwin Toy. Until today, I thought the company had disappeared off the Toronto scene all together, but no! While I was looking for a little history for you I learned that they have reemerged as iToys! You can read the story on their ABOUT US page at http://www.irwintoy.com/ Should you care to know more, please go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irwin_Toy
And now here I am in round three ... I'm travelling in circles. Crazy, fun, good circles. Please allow me introduce you to Erica's artful merchandise at Flipping Art Gallery Gift Shop ... http://www.cafepress.ca/flippingartgallery Some cute gifts there folks!
