Vintage Cufflinks

Something Old, Something Blue Is it possible to fall in love with cufflinks?

I was out and about with a friend and stumbled upon a new store in the U Street Corridor, Ginger Roots.

They have a lovely selection of vintage jewelry and repurposed pieces, including this amazing find:

I was delighted when my friend purchased them. (At a very reasonable price, I might add.) They are unique and exhibit the duality of being both functional and artistic.

Ginger Roots is also the home of ReVamp Design and Tailoring which focuses on sustainable, green design. Word is they will soon offer sewing classes. So excited to see what designers / owners Kristen and Erin are going to do next!
