Mavis first began performing aged eleven, when her father, Roebuck “Pops” Staples recruited his son and daughters into the gospel vocal group The Staple Singers… Their sacred songs spread messages of hope and self-empowerment, inspired by the peaceful protests of Martin Luther King, and thrived in the rise of Black Power. Since Pops’ death in 2000, Mavis has carried the Staples torch, her affecting, divine voice never faltering, always heavenly.

My grandma (nanny) used to carry her pancake makeup and AquaNet hairspray around in one of these. The whole thing…case, makeup, hairspray, mysterious tubes and jars…completely captured my imagination.
I just love vintage art, posters, typography, you name it…it’s all inspiring!
This vintage sign just perfectly expressed how I felt by the end of the day yesterday.
