Retro and vintage can be found turning up more and more thanks to an overall trend of being green. Designers seem to like to reuse and recycle! If you don't feel like digging through mounds of stuff to find a few pieces of classic gift wrap at your local junk shop or antique store take a look at the pretty wrapping papers by Two Hands Paperie. Their antique postcard and letter lines are to die for. Be sure to check out their entire collection including the koi and air mail designs. Almost as good as if Nick Bantock made wrapping papers! Add a simple ribbon and you're there. If you want to include a card with your gift check out the gift enclosure cards by Paper Patisserie (Chronical Books).
Look for chocolate browns, sky blue and creams and you'll never fail to be color coordinated. Also be sure to stock up now so that when the holday's roll around later this year you can be ahead of the game as the retro trend shows little sign of slowing down.
