Who's That?! Wednesday! {No.6} The Monocled Lop

5:00 PM

Today I feature: 

Creatin' from: 
Salt Lake City, Utah!

Hey all you pretty Mano y Metal readers! I'm Amy from A is for Ampersand, and I'm so excited to be here to tell you about my humble shop, The Monocled Lop. I run the Lop together with my best friend Emily. Once she moved to Oregon, we decided we needed a way to hang out without actually hanging out, so we created the Lop to keep ourselves inspired and creative. 

While our main product is our custom, one-of-a-kind vintage camera bags, you'll also find all kinds of pretty things in the shop, like turban headbands, necklaces, and silly prints for your home. Today we are excited to give away ANY TWO prints to one lucky reader! (details at the end of the post- so keep reading!:)
how would you describe your style (your art)?
Emily and I are hugely huge fans of all things vintage, so you'll definitely see that reflected throughout our shop. The idea behind our camera bags is that we wanted to offer vintage-loving ladies a more unique option. When we were shopping for camera bags, we could only find mass-produced mom purse camera bags, so we wanted to create an option that would be not only vintage, and not only one-of-a-kind, but sustainable, too! All of our bags are made with vintage bags and vintage fabrics.

what inspires you to create?
We find inspiration in thrifting and perusing the racks of vintage stores. I am also a graphic designer by day, so i find inspiration in retro advertisements and art. Music is a huge part of my life, and without a constant playlist, I would get nothing done. My playlist of choice for creative inspiration? Arcade Fire, Radiohead, Animal Collective, Kurt Vile, and Fleet Foxes just to name a few!

what is your favorite time of day to work on your art?
Morning time is my muse time. All I need is a cup of coffee and my MacBook Air, and I'm ready to get down to business designing and creating for the shop. When it comes to sewing, though, I find my best work comes late at night. My dream is to someday be able to create morning-through night with no full-time job to hold me back. I'm getting there!
