Around the Shop: October

Posted on 30 October 2014

In the lull between Back to School season and what every good shopkeeper refers to as "The Holidays", we've been busy receiving new shipments, battling small mountains of brown boxes to get the goods into our displays and online for you to see and shop. Take a look at what's new.  

Like everything in the shop, our displays are a mix of goodies for yourself and good gifts for friends. But which is which?

We've broadened our selection of barware, mixing vintage reproduction with Japanese new classics.

West Philly-based artist StitchPrism continues to supply us with aeriums exclusivly available in our storefront. They make great gifts for a wide range of people in your life, since the air plant inside requires minimal care and can be easily hung.

Frankie Magazine, Lee Coren bags, and new comic and illustration books in from Koyama Press (online soon) go suprisingly well together.

The weather is finally getting cold enough to warrant scarves and hats, and we've got a super cozy selection, online soon!

Gorgeous Japanese ceramics make their return to the store. Shop the collection here.

Philadelphia based Hand in Hand soaps have returned as well. Their fragrances are uncomplicated, fresh, and amazing quality. Shop Hand in Hand.

We've amassed a small selection of kid friendly books, wood toys, and adorable "hugging cushions" in our back room. You can see a small fraction of it online in our Baby & Kids section here.

Yoshida Porter top quality cases will last you a lifetime, and the newly arrived Blackbird beard oil won't disappoint either.

We're stoked on our brand new selection of cozy AnonymousIsm socks from Japan and wool socks by Swedish design team, Bengt & Lotta. You may think, socks, really? And to that we say, yes, socks. Socks without holes. Cozy socks for lounging around the house in. Warm socks that make it ok to walk into freezing weather. A must. (Online soon)

Find a new signature scent with evocative and feminine eau de parfums from MCMC Fragrances, based in Brooklyn and made in small batches by hand. Shop the collection here.
