As was mentioned, we have broadened Jackie's Ghosts horizons and are now selling our cards in a few shops in Portland. If you find yourself in that fine city, mozy up to Mississippi Ave and check out Porch Light. Aside from now carrying a few of our creations the shop also features fine paper goods, amazing antiques, (one cabinet in particular that I wished I could somehow "Merlin" into my suitcase) and other old-timey delights.
Memento is the other shop which is currently selling our goods. If you are in the market for a unique gift or are looking for a card that really packs a punch, this shop is a must.
(Roses on the sewer drain?! What a fine town indeed!)
Pack 'em up and ship 'em out! Many of our cards headed out to Portland a couple of weeks ago - and others will soon find their way to Santa Fe. We are excited about the expansion and expect to craft our hearts out to keep it up!
Jackie's Ghost started up several years ago as a small group of artists who were interested in sitting down together and creating one-of-a-kind collages. Our process consists of using a unique oil transfer process combined with antique and vintage paper, magazines, and books. We have now moved to printing these pieces so that a single image can be enjoyed by many. Most of our work has translated into a card format due to our adoration of the 'handwritten note,' but we also sell prints, totes and bags, along with a few of the original collage pieces.
Each contributor has earned a bachelor degree in the art field and have studied and continue to work in the realms of graphic design, photography, film, fashion, art history, and communications. Because of these diverse artistic interests, our work often shifts between mysterious, charming, alluring, and witty, but above all, unique.
