Stop the press…Keds and Rifle equals a champion sneaker

Hello friends,

Shut the front door – I am so thrilled to spread this exciting and fabulous news.  One of my favorite stationery companies, Rifle Paper Company (Read my post Hot off the press…) and Keds have collaborated to make the prettiest everyday champion sneaker!  Remember you heard it hear first.

I have ordered this product on the Keds Site so I could get fast shipping and excellent their excellent returns policy.  The price will likely change over time, so click this link to check the current price of your Rifle Keds.

So excited I am grinning like the cat who just got the cream.
