Come Shop With Us!


Charles Street was at the epicenter of the March today, and it was a most fantastic day! We had a front row seat to the huge, festive, energizing and peaceful gathering. So amazing!



Love cards are in the air!

Valentine cards are arriving fast and furiously, you'll have a great selection to choose from.

While shopping for those you love, don't forget to have a heart by donating to our origami folding project for the Cambridge Women's Center at 46 Pleasant Street, Cambridge. Check out their amazing work at




Bonne Année! 

We are grateful, and thank you for all your support through the crazy holiday season! It was fun, hectic and again renewed my faith that "small stores" are a part of so many people's traditions and plans. If you were here battling the crowds we thank you for your patience and perseverence and hope you found something special for someone you love.

We are currently facing a tough battle here in Harvard Square - developer's plans will force the displacement of many treasured neighbors, so your support at this time is especially important. If you want to get more involved or let your opinions be heard feel free to join the movement at the next Cambridge Historical Commission meeting Thursday January 5th at 6 pm at the Central Square Senior Center.

Speaking of Central Square:

We will be folding origami for donations for the Cambridge Women's Center, 46 Pleasant Street for the months of January and February! Stop by and have a heart (for just a dollar donation) and support the work being done by this amazing organization. Check out their website at:






Holiday Checklist?

Silver Santa? Check! Silver Kewpie Doll? Check! Roller Conveyor Belts? Check! Okay, I think we are ready for another holiday season at Black Ink. We just need you to make it complete, festive and lively.

We've been filling the shelves with gift items for everyone and every budget from Bla Bla Dolls, to Ok Clip Snowflakes to Whale Serving Boards, to Glow-in-the-Dark Magnaboards and the even more obscure items you've come to expect here.

Wishing you a peaceful season of giving and enjoyment. 


(Update on our Folding Hearts for Haiti project - this morning I found the very best Cyber-Monday deal ever -any donations made to PIH today were matched by a generous anonymous donor, so we sent off another $190.00 collected at out stores and it magically became a $380.00 donation! Thanks to all you warm-hearted customers.)




Welcome to Plaid Friday 2016, Black Ink style. We will be contributing 5% of both Black Ink store sales today to Planned Parenthood in gratefulness to Hillary Clinton and her efforts to bring us together and make us stronger. She has certainly succeeded and we appreciate her efforts. 

Remember, you can always "vote with your dollars" by supporting local establishments, who support your community and make your neighborhood what it is. (Don't forget, many of us also bank locally - I bank across the street, not across the world!)

Thank you for your continued support,

Susan and staff
