Come Shop With Us!

must. go. on.

During a somber sad day yesterday where we had lots of time to talk and commiserate (as with most of the Square, activity was unusually low) we decided that doing good and being kind will be the best way to lift our spirits going forward. I know that the Cambridge and Boston communities do this on a daily basis already, I've watched so many acts of kindness in the neighborhoods over the years, and it's going to be especially important now.

So at this point, I am asking people to continue to "vote" with their dollars, support the local institutions that you love and appreciate, it's YOUR community, and although you share it with the world, you make it what it is. Let's not lose any more of our independent local stores and businesses, it's what makes us unique and authentic.

Peace, Susan and staff



with great despair...

all we can do today is fold hearts.

(Sent another $200.00 to Partners in Health, contributed by our wonderful customers to help those in need.)



Stay dry and toasty! New plaid umbrellas (stick and compact) to protect you from the elements have arrived. May we also suggest: Colorblock Touchscreen Gloves, Doughnut Socks (yes, you read that correctly), Flying Bird Botanicals Tea Blends, and more...


Our Folding Community

We just sent a check to Partners in Health for $160.00. That's a lot of heart(s)! Thank you to our generous customers for joining us in this project. We hope to continue folding and collecting through the holidays, so please come and join us.


Hearts for Haiti


Please stop by and have a heart ~ an origami heart, that is! We are folding for Partners in Health, our locally based organization bringing help to those most in need - around the world and especially in Haiti right now. Give a dollar donation for a heart and we will send all proceeds collected to PIH.
