When we first saw Brinware’s tempered glass dishware, boy were we impressed. Safe, beautiful, non-toxic glassware kids can use that offers the best of both worlds via the perfect pairing of tempered glass with silicone. Now Brinware has added some equally attractive and safe food storage containers to their collection, just in time for packed lunches for back-to-school. Brinware’s food storage containers are made of borosilicate glass and FDA approved food-grade silicone and can be safely used in freezers, microwaves, dishwashers and even in an oven up to 400F degrees. Adorable cut-out patterns in the silicon allow you to see through the glass, plus the silicone is slip resistant, so these containers won’t slide out of hands or off the counter.  Perfectly sized for sandwiches snacks and more — each container holds 18.6 oz.

Those idyllic photographs of days gone by, rose-tinted and glorious. And the outfits, so sweet! Oh, nostalgia for the past! The 1950′s swing dresses, the beautiful 1960′s swirling fabric patterns and the little kiddos’ onesies. Many of us love vintage – and what’s more, buying an item made in the past and reused for your little cherub is both cost effective and nice and ethical too. One vintage savvy lady who would like to save her customers the trouble of trawling through racks of forgotten garments, is Lori Inglis Hall. Lori has an amazing online vintage children’s wear shop called Lori and the Caravan, which is full of reasonably priced vintage gems from bygone eras that are all unique and beautiful. We interviewed Lori in search of some tips for vintage shopping, with the hope we can help Inhabitots readers find their own beloved vintage clothing for their children.
