Survival Kit for a Springtime Adventure handmade and vintage goods

The beginning of spring always gets me itching for a nice long adventure, and for good reason! The pleasant weather has a knack for stirring up nostalgia. I’m missing that sense of exploration and the skinned knees from tree climbing that I came to know so well as a young’un.

It’s time to come out of hibernation and hit the nearest park. Don’t be afraid to veer off the beaten path — you know how Robert Frost would feel about that. I’ve gathered some handy essentials for your journey. Good luck!
