2. Vintage photographs from QCumberz - $1.95 each
Cirincione has a collection of these postage stamp-sized photographs at home. See what she does with them during Home Spun, her bi-monthly class at Art Intersection.
3. Book of Japanese art from Zinnias at Melrose - $2.99
An ephemera book is about more than just its pictures, said Panaro-Smith, who scored this huge book of Japanese illustrations. The paper's thickness, shine and overall quality is also essential.
