An Ode to Girl Scouts: 20 Items for Your Inner Cookie Queen
Girl Scout cookie season is upon us! And you know what that means: Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tagalongs, oh my! While we can’t wait to hit up our favorite local cookie sellers, there’s more to celebrating Girl Scouts than cookies. Here are 20 odds and ends that are all about the Girl Scout.
Editor’s Note: We’d be remiss if we didn’t admit that this roundup was at least partially inspired by the reveal that Brit + Co. founder Brit Morin was San Antonio’s Cookie Seller of the Year in 1993 — no surprise!
1. Official Girl Scout Camera ($65): How amazing is this camera? Likely from the 1950s, this is an Imperial 620 Camera manufactured by Herbert George Co of Chicago. It uses 620 or 120 film and will definitely get you one step closer to that photography badge.
2. Mix & Match Stationery ($9): Sweeten up your correspondence with these colorful notes and envelopes.
Too many cookies on our hands? While we don’t really think that’s possible, this quick recipe will turn your cookies into cookie cups and custom ice cream. (via Brit + Co.)
