The Business of Business Cards

Many of you know that I am on my way to the Blissdom Conference starting next week in Nashville.  At first I hesitated to go, but after some prodding, I decided to hop on a plane from California to attend this much celebrated and talked about event.  Plus, I’ve never been to Nashville and I’vealwayswanted to visit that city.  And I really want to meet some amazing bloggers that inspire me.

Naturally, networking is a big part of these large scale events, and blog/business cards are a necessity, so I set my sights on purchasing a stylish card holder.   When a girl goes to a conference, she deserves something pretty to hold her cards, am I right ?

At first I shopped around for some modern cases.  Take a peek at some of these beauties, then check out my vintage Etsy find at the end !

Then it dawned on me, being such a lover of vintage accessories, that I should look for something more unique, like a cigarette case from back in the day.  What a perfectly chic and modern way to put an antique item to good use.

What did I finally settle on ?

This vintage mother of pearl case from the 1950s.

It arrived today.  It’s just so pretty in person.

Isn’t it so Betty Draper ?  I absolutely love it.

For those of you who will be in attendance, I hope we get to meet each other.  Look for the flashy but classy mother of pearl cigarette case – that’s me behind it.  Yay for vintage on Etsy !

Any suggestions for “not to miss” spots in Nashville ?
