Happy summer! We hope you’re busy enjoying all that summer has to offer here in our wonderful city! In between all your fun-in-the-sun, we hope you squeeze in a trip to Neighborly to see all the new products we’ve added to our shelves.
Clockwise from top: Illinois ceramic plate by Corbé – $55, block printed toiletry bag by Graymarket – $38, coloring Sheets by Pirasta – $20, candlesticks by Good Thing – $27, garden jars by Modern Sprout – $20 each, solar system print by Brent Couchman – $40, hand printed pillow by Earth Cadets – $48, sand toy set by Biobu – $35
Most notably, we have ANOTHER new state themed good – “handufactured” ceramic state plates by Corbé Company that are made in Detroit and are a great size for serving your favorite treats (did someone say cookies?!). Another new find will help the kiddos stay occupied during summer storms – color-in maps and giant 63″ x 36″ posters from Pirasta in NYC (fun for adults too). And in case your garden didn’t make it this year (or you never got around to planting one), Chicago-based Modern Sprout is to the rescue! Their self-watering mason jar kits make it extremely easy to grow herbs. We’ve awarded them Maker of the Month because they support skill building for developmentally disabled people with the assembly of their products.
We’ve also restocked some favorites:
