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.
