    Owned and operated by the husband/wife team of Michelle Sanders & Miguel Salinas, Attic Journals is committed to sustainably offsetting the book discard pipeline by up-cycling as much of the book as possible via their diverse line of gift & decor items made for every day people. 

    Having worked in libraries throughout her school-aged years, Michelle became keenly aware of the pipeline to the landfill most discarded books endured. As a native Portlander, where the ethic of recycling is revered, she received formal training in high school and college on the impacts of humans to our planets ecology. With a natural  knack for crafting, she started to investigate and experiment with how to offset the way books were discarded and work on a way to divert them from the landfill.  

    Then in 2004, while living on the coast of California, Michelle had a moment of inspiration about the closet full of books she had spared from the dumpster during her library working days. That evening, on her living room floor, Attic Journals and a company committed to innovative engagement with the byproducts of book production was born. In 2008, after Michelle had moved home to Portland and began working to grow Attic Journals into a legitimate business, Miguel became a part of the team (and the love of Michelle’s life).

    Having been raised in southern Mexico by a mother who is renowned in her region for the mole’ sauces she sells, Miguel was ardently aware of the work ethic and logistics necessary for running a family business. In addition, his work experience in food service, light manufacturing and transportation formed his keen understanding of running a small, efficient production space and allowed him to be innovative in how to do this work in a way that honored the company's environmentally responsible ethos.

    In the years since, Attic Journals has evolved into a burgeoning business that works hard to be as sustainable as possible from Portland, Oregon.

    I love it!

    I love that it's made from board books.

    M.B. Thank you for the review! We agree 100%! Plus, because they can't be recycled, re-using them makes these all the more special. We have custom letters, too, so you can make your own banners or customize a pre-made banner.

    Colorful, unique decoration

    Our birthday celebration guests complimented on how colorful and fun this birthday garland is - such a unique decoration that is sturdy and re-usable. I love knowing these are created from upcycled board books (we even recognized some of the book characters on the letters!). Can't wait to hang it up again for the next birthday party!

    Thank you for such a nice review. We also stock letters and other characters so you can customize one of our standard garlands or make up your own!
