Big Changes at the Shop!

We're delighted to announce that our renovations are complete and there's now twice as much shopping fun at 1825 East Passyunk Avenue! Our shop neighbor, HOME, moved their design showroom and shop into the (big, secret) space behind the shop. They did such a beautiful job turning the previously underutilized area into a really lovely space. Our shop is unchanged, for the most part, though it may feel a tiny bit bigger as we moved our checkout counter back to create a bigger area for our selection of cards.  Stop by to see the new space and fawn over all the pretty, shiny things to buy at HOME!

We've had so much fun at the shop events we've hosted over the past year or so that we wanted to do some even lovelier things with you!  Here's a little peek of the workshops we've got lined up: Knitting Great Gifts with Maura Kirk: Know how to knit but not so much that...
