Did Jenni Bowlin design the collection? I'm confused...
It looks exactly like a lot of her stuff.

ETA: I checked their blog and website, find no mention of Jenni Bowlin.

Normally I'm a big MM fan but I do not like how they are handling this release. M's get the products now but independent store won't get it till the fall?!?!
That is a horrible way to treat your independent retailers. By the time the product hits them it will considered old to some and might not move.

Took a closer look at the papers, and the postcards paper is almost exactly like their postcard paper from their "passport" line.

I'm not in love...it reminds me of several etsy designers. I love etsy but when I want things like that I would much rather go there and support the WAHM's who sell there.

I like the shaped cardstock, tickets, & labels. Hope area Michaels locations stock these items, since none of the not-so-LSSs carry MM anymore.

Jenni Bowlin is not a MM designer; rather, she has her own company, Jenni Bowlin Studio (JBS).

I just bought the large travel kit and the paper pad from Michael's. It was all they had out so far but said the rest should be put out tomorrow or Saturday! Can't wait to get more of this line!

I saw it at my M's today, but I wasn't really that thrilled with it in person. I looked and looked but ended up only buying those flower-shaped pins for $1.99. The mini-kits are REALLY small, though they had some neat things in them. I guess I thought the line looked better in pictures than in real life...

It was at my M's today. Cute- I bought some straight pins and a mini kit of embellies for 3.99. I didn't see any paper though. I might have missed them as I was shopping with my 2 year old....UGH!

Two M's here in town that I've been to over the weekend had all the Vintage Findings stuff out. I got the specialty paper pack, the embellishment paper pack, and 8x8 paper pad, one of the large kits, 3 of the small kits, the tickets, two packs of the vintage tags and the flower pins. I LOVE it ALL!!!

I was slightly disappointed in one of the items; the brown labels that very much resembled JB. They were tiny...about the size of a postage stamp. I was ready to stock up on these.

i saw these today at our M's and only bought two items (pins) because in looking at the kits there were many things in them that didn't appeal to me. I also thumbed through the paper and it looked like an older paper from 5 years ago...

I do like to see them going in this direction - vintage anything is hot hot hot right now and they are trying so yea for them

Stumbled across the line at M's this weekend. Snatched up 3 of the mini kits. Already used one to assemble an adorable summer LO. Love, love, love this stuff. Can't wait to go back this weekend and get more!

I LOVE this line!
I didn't know about it debuting at M's and then later in the fall at lss.
Snatched up almost everything since I had one 50% coupon, a 20% off coupon for entire purchase and a $50 gift card from a bride and groom for lettering their seating cards. Did have to pitch in $70 but I really like all the 'findings.'

Can't wait to play with everything!

Thanks enablers!

I had a 50% off coupon, so I had to go to M's.
I was planning on buying something practical like adhesive.
I ended up buying one of the little kits, and the pack of small brown labels.

I was just checking out the line on the MM site. I noticed that the way they show the paper is that it is double-sided. However I bought a 12x12 pad of paper from M's and it is all one-sided. I wonder if the paper that will come to the LSSs will be the 2-sided kind.

My M's had the whole display full of the vintage line. It is pretty cute but I think they brought back some of the Vintage Hip items from a few years ago.

I saw this at my Ms Sunday. It was a very appealing display. But when I got closer, I found it all a bit overwhelming. I ended up passing on it. I think I may still want the mini-kit with the piece of sheet music in it though. I'm regretting not getting that one...

The closest M's location received the entire display this week (after only having the paper packs & several empty pegs last week). I purchased only the tickets & received the shaped cardstock from a friend who dislikes shaped papers but purchased the pack for the specialty (foil, glitter, etc) sheets. I was disappointed in the mini size of the labels & several elements of the kits that appeared a complete rip-off of Jenni Bowlin's designs (e.g. Bingo cards, star journaling card).
