Sanna Annukka is finally here..........

here at 1973 we have been waiting for this range to come in for what feels like forever. we have all been very excited about the final products and they didn’t disappoint. every card, postcard and wrap are just simply stunning. Sanna came into the office on friday and we managed to get some snaps of her with her products (to follow shortly) and what a star she is, genuine and friendly as well as being a massive talent and gorgeous to boot, some people have all the luck. we are very excited about this venture ad hope you guys like the results.
