Proper Introductions

Her name is Prudence.
His name is Wally.

Together, they hand make quirky and delightful things to help spread vintage-inspired kitsch across the states.

This brand new blog is a place to see what these young wipper-snappers are creating and how you can get your hands on some of the items. While they love to tour to craft fairs in their Winnebago, their merchandise can also be purchased online!
When they're not creating and selling their wares from their gypsy cart, Prudence and Wally head up the Retro Research Society, documenting their finds and tips over at
Every month, they even give something vintagey away... just because they feel like it!
Gearing up for the Flea Market Season, Prudence and Wally have been as busy as sin sewing and dying all sorts of quirky things, so be sure to stop by again soon for new products and fun thoughts!
