Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Traci Nelson co-owns Butter Toast, a vintage gem in downtown Phoenix. And when she's not busy thrifting, crocheting and exploring old-timey yachts, she's sharing her latest finds and photos on her blog, Toast.

Her Butter Toast partner-in-crime Jasmine Jarrett also contributes; together, the two know a bit about what makes an interesting store-based blog (mostly great photos, cool crafts, and shout-outs to other neat local blogs).

With cat-shaped lipstick, antique trunks and flower pins, the two also know how to get the attention of any semi-nerdy, crafty, thrifty, pin-wearing junkie. And if none of those things sound appealing, they've also clued into (and shared) a ton of great viral and animated videos. And don't lie, everyone loves those.

Nelson just posted another edition of the blogs "New Loves," (including a girl with antlers) which was a timely reminder of why we, in turn, love her blog.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
