July 4th is approaching, always a festive and meaningful holiday here in New England as we celebrate the birth of American independence. Did you know Massachusetts was the first state to make the 4th of July an official state holiday? And that John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4th, 1826, the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence?



Summertime in the city!

The month of June is LGBTQ Pride and we have chosen BAGLY as our folding project recipient.

Boston Alliance of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Youth is a youth-led, adult-supported social support organization committed to social justice, and creating, sustaining and advocating for programs, policies and services for the LGBTQ youth community. Come by either of our stores this month and get an origami butterfly for one dollar. All proceeds will be donated to BAGLY.


Happy Mom's Day Weekend

Just a few Mother's Day cards left, it's time to get creative! Our Boston store sells hundreds of artistic rubber stamps; perhaps Mom would still treasure a handmade greeting? We have lots of wonderful gift choices to select from, beautiful gift wraps and ribbons, and other oddities. 

 I spent last weekend visiting my mom in Chicago, and want to wish her, and all your special mother figures a great weekend filled with gratitude. Speaking of gratitude, thanks to our generous customers our origami fundraiser for Boston Area Rape Crisis Center has reached $250 - Black Ink will match that and send $500 to this wonderful community outreach service. Peace, Susan and Marge
