Wheatpaste Instagram faves are here!
Let’s face it – it’s hard to actually “unplug” these days. With tons of social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc., it seems almost impossible to stay off the ‘net for even a moment!
If you’re going to be living in the digital world, Wheatpaste wants to make sure that you have the best alternate reality ever. Our personal favorite app is Instagram, especially with the rad new video feature! (Sorry, Vine). If you also love the photo-sharing giant, don’t miss the Wheatpaste Instagram Top Picks just below.
Fred Flare (@fredflare)
From cupcakes to baby seals, FredFlare’s Instagram feed is too twee for words. Plus, their shop is chock full of super cute gift ideas and goods for those who love kawaii (uber-cute) stuff.
Pow Wow Hawaii (@powwowhawaii)
Street art at its finest. Pow Wow Hawaii is a fantastic yearly gathering of contemporary artists from around the world on Oahu (with plenty of satellite events to tide you over all year) that makes its mark with murals all over the island, workshops, classes, and more. Eye candy galore.
Lisa Congdon (@lisacongdon)
This intrepid traveler & artist seems to constantly be on the move; from Paris to Norway, she captures the amazing beauty of the world around her and translates it into unique, brilliant illustrations (some of which we’re lucky enough to sell!). Warning: serious travel envy ahead.
Speaking of too cute for words, Poketo! The brick and mortar location is in Los Angeles and is spearheaded by Ted & Angie, an adorable spouse-team of creatives that launched Poketo in 2003, growing it into a small-biz powerhouse that’s now found all over the place (including major retailers like Target). Poketo’s Instagram depicts small slices of their rosy community, and we’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do.
If you’re even remotely ‘subculture’, you know and love Volcom. Peep their Instagram. Trust us.
May 28 (@may28th)
Is it so wrong to think of May 28th as the Poketo of watches? Super cute, small business, great design, etc. Their Instagram feed basically showcases their products and events, which is really all we need. Cute stuff that will cause your friends major retail envy.
Giant Robot (@giantrobot)
Vinylheads all agree, Giant Robot rules. They have gone through a few transformations over the past 10+ years, but their Instagram feed provides daily toy candy so you can get your fix. Sadly, their magazine is no longer in publication, but you can snag back issues from their shop!
Self-described as a “poster party for bike people, ARTCRANK is an international travelling poster show that features bike art by local artists from around the world. By raising awareness of bike culture though art, they create a support network of cycling enthusiasts from all over the place! You can’t beat that.
Indie 184 (@indie184)
From the Bronx to the ‘net, Indie184 has taken her neon graffiti art style to clothes, accessories, and walls around the globe. She’s one of the top Wheatpaste Instagram picks because looking through her photostream is like getting jolted with electricity, only awesomer. She’s got style, she’s got flair, she’s there!
Era Vintage (@eravintage)
Mid-century modern, yes please! Richmond, Virginia isn’t just one of the most tattooed cities in America – it’s also a hub for design-lovers and creatives who go gaga over unique home decor. As the former shop manager for Quirk Gallery, Diana Mathews launched Era Vintage as an online-only business just a few short years ago and has recently expanded into what just might be the most adorable and still affordable collection of retro, vintage, and mid-century furniture for your home.
Uppercase Mag (@uppercasemag)
If you identify as “creative and curious”, then Uppercase is for you. Uppercase is a quarterly magazine from Canada that sparks wonder and whimsy in all who get their hands on it. With plenty of inspiration from their Instagram feed, this was a no-brainer for the top Wheatpaste Instagram picks.
Who are some of your favorite Instagram accounts? We’d love to add more!
