Announcing the Retro Bar Cart Tea Towel Design Challenge Winners

SEP 20, 2018 updated Jun 2, 2021

After looking at the entries in this week’s Retro Bar Cart Tea Towel Design Challenge, it’s safe to say we’ve got something to cheers about! Let’s raise a glass to our grand prize winner, mia_valdez and her design, Mid-Century Atomic Party Bar. Mia’s vintage inspired tea towel entry won the hearts of the community and is truly top shelf. Congratulations are also in order for a_tale_of_fox and katerhees who took home second and third place, respectively. Shop the entire top 10 at Spoonflower to create your own retro bar cart tea towel or skip the DIY and order a ready-made Linen Cotton Canvas tea towel at Roostery.
