We Are 1976 offers numerous workshops, including letterpress classes.

As huge fans of sites like Etsy and, of course, Pinterest, it seems we?re always trolling the Internet like cybersleuths, searching for crafty ideas to duplicate and pass off as our own.

So it was a welcome breath of fresh air to visit We Are 1976--a throwback craft store if there ever was one--with its wealth of design ideas from a variety of inspired sources. Peruse the merchandise here and you?ll quickly forget it?s 2012. You may even feel transported to a land before Internet time, circa 1976.

The name of this design/gallery/workshop space is an apt descriptor that speaks to the store?s penchant for fun, quirky items like a T-shirt that features a mashup of Dallas Mavericks and We Are 1976 logos ($28). Or the wacky Godzilla letterpress print ($35).

And like any good design retailer, on-trend pieces are in the mix, too, such as the Tiny Armour collar necklace ($65).

Another item well worth sharing: The company?s new store in North Oak Cliff, which offers more space for their much-loved workshops, will be the site of a forthcoming letterpress class.

Finally, a reason to power down the computer and get inspired the old-fashioned way.
