They often depend on a particular board with extraordinary features. Philadelphia is quite the industrious city with a history of perseverance.
It’s definitely worth browsing and exploring. Check out their perfectly curated online shop here. Manayunk is an outdoor shopping district named after the main thoroughfare. It’s slightly hilly and plays holiday and classical music through vintage megaphones that gently distort it.
One side of the street stays shady through most of the day while the other side is sunny so it’s perfect for walking regardless of the weather. It’s so perfectly idyllic, like stepping back in a moment in time (except with really modern goods and shops). Some of the buildings were textile mills and date to the 1850s. He was inside of a cloud and a rainbow array of party pom poms. One of my favorite things was a small section of prints on the walls. The clothing they carry is absolutely stunning – mint condition and very unique.
They had a lot of eras that you don’t see in other places. No polyester and no space age was to be seen anywhere. They also had an array of hand knit finished pieces like scarves, shawls and lots of items for wee ones. All of the pieces available for purchase were masterfully crafted with expert patterns and adorable little buttons. The last place is a little bigger, a little more high end, and absolutely amazing.
I love hearing about handmade business success. Their furniture is made of natural materials, mostly wood, and is quite modern and stunning. The pieces are luxurious and you can find just about any piece of furniture you can think of – tables, bed frames, desks and more. There were lots of other shops that carried local and vintage goods. Handmade items are always so much more personal than mass produced stuff.
I love the interesting, independently owned shops you can find throughout the city. She is always talking about all these amazing places in town.
I love the concept of homemade items featured in shops!

But he loved making things and always kept a small shop, even when he pursued a career in finance. His hobby turned into a sideline, which in 2012 evolved into a full-time pursuit. Lockerby started out by saying yes to every project, then going back to his shop and quietly panicking over how he'd get it done. Now, he has a team of four employees with varied expertise who work on projects ranging from front doors to kitchen tables to cabinets and mirrors for hair salons. Every hole that's drilled, every part that's put together, was done by one of us. Instead, we might get a self-storage facility. There's really no reason to rush to the finish. To extend dignity and peace to another is to extend it to yourself. Thank you for your patronage over the years. It has been a pleasure to bring your distinct style to life.

Our tables are custom made to your specifications. The additional square footage includes exciting new features like a bedroom with floating desk, a walk-in closet, and bookcases that act as interior half-height walls. They are composed of multiple pieces of glass mirror of varying tints and shapes that together create optical illusions of three dimensional shapes. Each mirror is framed with a line of thin solid wood. Shape mirrors extend beyond everyday function, crossing into the realm of aesthetic value in its own right, while at the same time allowing you to check your makeup. Utilizing vacuum pressure and super-hot glass, hot patches of glass become scenes of controlled implosion. The result is a stunning, and wholly unique, distorted sphere with an interior landscape of satellite shapes. Marble stands for strength and stability like hardly any other material. Large slabs of natural stone seem to float over the delicate framework.
The organic markings criss-cross the table top. An abstract painting of white strands, a still sculpture – reserved, elegant and powerful at the same time. A real treasure: the variant made of crystalline, white onyx marble. The proprietary dimmer allows for fine tuning to achieve the perfect light output for your mood. The ball joint base allows the lamp’s arm a range of angles and to swivel a full 360 degrees. The chairs can be seen in the showroom window.
