Summer Travel-Themed Gift Idea: Map Coasters

20130429-hester1jpg

This weekend at NYC’s Hester Street Fair (Saturdays, 10am-6pm, Hester Street and Essex Street, hesterstreetfair.com), amid the foodcarts and vintage clothes vendors, a booth featuring travel-themed homegoods called On the Fringe, caught my eye. Decoupage artist Wendy Howard transforms old travel brochures and maps into trivets and coasters, ideal host/hostess gifts for summer travelers, or for graduates taking off for points unknown. (I kept picturing them arranged side-by-side behind my kitchen sink as a map-themed backsplash…)

On the Fringe (onthefringe.ws, coasters $6 each or 4 for $20; trivets from $15- $25.)
