From our personal collection…April 20, 2012Tim’s mom likes pennants!
Although our parents don’t always understand what we do as designers, they are always supportive. The People’s Pennant has especially resonated with my mom. The last time she visited she brought (along with a bag of her customary homemade cookies) a bundle of felt pennants from her childhood. Each summer her family went on a series of adventures and each trip was commemorated with a pennant. Whether the destination was the Aquarama in Philadelphia, the 1967 Expo in Montreal, or The World’s Greatest Indoor Miniature World in Shartlesville, PA, these design artifacts remind her of the wonderful trips she took when she was a kid.
The pennants allow her to share her experiences with me, share stories, and celebrate memories. I attached a few photos of my favorites from the collection below. Enjoy!
If you have beautiful vintage pennants that you want to share, email us photos at submissions[at]thepeoplespennant.com. If we love them, we’ll post them on the blog.
