Mindy Humphrey is doing something creative, unique, and good for the planet. She takes old beer boxes and “repurposes” them into useful items you can use every day. These are some pretty cool items for the craft beer geek on your Christmas list. Mindy has created items such as wallets, luggage tags, wrist bands, hair bands, and even purses from recycled beer boxes.
It is obvious that she isn’t in this to get rich, as her prices are very reasonable. The Back in Black wallet pictured above is only $16 with $2.50 for shipping. She makes everything out of vinyl so all her creations are vegan friendly and won’t cause cows to grimace.
You can see hers stuff here on Etsy.com.
Mindy also wants to please. If you don’t find something with a logo that interests you, you can send her a box and she will custom make the item you wish. What is more if you do this, she doesn’t charge shipping for the item you purchase! These are really cool, and for light duty use I think would be a great addition to any craft beer lover’s wardrobe. Mindy has this disclaimer she posts on her site.
DISCLAIMER: Mindy’s Beer Gear is not licensed product of the brewery their materials came from. Mindy’s Beer Gear items were created in my shop. MindysDesigns is in no way trying to compete with or duplicate any products sold by the breweries. All materials used were obtained by purchasing & consuming the product. Those materials were then upcycled and turned into something new instead of throwing them away and filling some landfill. MindysDesigns makes beer gear because she loves beer and supports breweries in the craft/micro beer world.
I always like to support someone who wants to make an honest product, and is interested in a lot more than just a huge profit. So in the interest of Craft beer, try giving the beer geek on your list something unique and personal. They’ll thank you for it.
