Category: Stories

Many businesses in Little Italy have quickly adapted to find new and innovative ways to engage with their customers. From the accessory queen to the coffee lover there is something special for everyone!

Add a little sparkle into your life with Vocabulary Boutique’s personalized earring subscription club. Just because we are spending more time at home doesn’t mean we can’t accessorize our looks! Upon signing up, members fill out a questionnaire to determine their style and metal preferences before beginning to receive their personalized collection. With three different subscription options available you can get up to three pairs of handmade earrings, tailored just for you, delivered monthly to your door.

We could all use a little extra caffeine these days, especially with the start of the school year. James Coffee Co. is helping you get the most out of your cup with a coffee subscription service bringing freshly roasted, hand-crafted coffee to your door. Their wide selection of blends, single origins, and roaster’s choice is sure to match and expand your palate. Simply let them know which roast you prefer, how much you want, and how often you would like to receive a shipment. Finally, something to look forward to in the morning!

Shopping from home just took on a whole new meaning at Little Italy’s fair trade boutique, Verde. Now, through a simple facetime call,  you can sit back, relax, and allow a personal shopper to aid you in your shopping endeavors as they help you create a cart that matches your unique style. With this new virtual shopping experience, you can browse Verde’s wide collection, ranging from their handcrafted, sterling silver jewelry and decorative Amethyst healing crystals to their cleverly repurposed, eco-chic home accessories, without ever getting out of bed. Talk about shopping made easy!

Looking for something more artistic? Join Blick Art Materials on their Facebook Live as they begin hosting live art demos for artists looking to hone in on their skills and express their creative side. Learn how to use a paint marker to elegantly etch designs onto glassware, create a felt poinsettia garland with only fabric, wire, and a bit of glue, or gift someone a beautifully handcrafted, block printed holiday card. The possibilities are endless, and with new classes made available each week, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to let out your inner creative genius!
