Great Host & Hostess Gifts for Thanksgiving

11/01/2013
Case Study Image

It’s that time of the year again when parties are in abundance and it’s better to stay inside with a glass of wine than hang out on the lawn. If you plan to attend a Thanksgiving feast instead of hosting, I suggest brining along a gift for your host or hostess this year. After all, organizing a Thanksgiving meal is quite the undertaking.

Morris Kitchen Syrups, $13

These syrups are a must-have on any bar cart. From Spiced Apple to Lemon, Rhubarb, and Ginger, you can break these sweet syrups out after the feast has been had and it’s time to end the night with a smooth drink.

Available at Art In The Age at 116 N. 3rd Street, or online at www.artintheage.com

Get Weird in the Great Outdoors

11/01/2013
Case Study Image

Home: The Free People Blog interviewed Richard Olsen about book Handmade Houses: A Century of Earth Friendly Home Design… ah maz ing. These homes are incredible. I can only dream of owning a little house in the woods like these. This is a must have coffee table book for me – get yours here.

Outdoors: If your in Philly this weekend (maybe headed home from Phish!) Check out Art In the Age Store on 116 North Third Street. They are selling limited edition Art In The Age x Poler #campvibes Cocktail Kit. Everything you need to get weird in the great outdoors house in a rugged yet practical Poler case.

Style: No, there are no wedding bells in my near future but I just about died when I saw that Mara Hoffman had started a bridal collection. It’s beautiful boho chic and affordable too! If not the wedding dress, then for sure the reception!

P.S. Lots of new fall styles added to the Shop! Happy Weekend!

A Taste of Pumpkin

Case Study Image

Pumpkins aren’t simply eye candy. In fact, when prepared accordingly, this delightful squash can work its way seamlessly into many a delicious seasonal treat. And you don’t even have to feel bad about indulging on said treats.

Not only are pumpkins delicious, they’re nutritious. Pumpkin seeds have been attributed to promoting heart health and can boost levels of serotonin, keeping you jolly through the season. When it comes to the bright orange flesh of the pumpkin, this fibrous food is high in potassium and can even act as a substantial immune booster thanks to packing Vitamin C, iron and zinc. On top of that, pumpkins have carotenoids that are said to keep cancer at bay while keeping your skin healthy.

In the spirit of the mighty pumpkin, we’ve compiled a mix of local menu items and DIY recipes we encourage you to indulge upon this season.
