Poler's Boozy Backpack

11/05/2013
Case Study Image

Art in the Age, makers of inspired pre-prohibition hooch, are hanging out with the cool kids over at Poler in a collaboration that will definitely get you out of the house: a#CampVibes Cocktail Kit packed into the outdoor retailer's Excursion pack.

The day tripper is full of campfire and soft summit essentials: Stanley camp flask, two enameled cups, a Mason shaker, and then some Pok Pok drinking vinegar (yes, drinking vinegar is tasty) — drinkable alone or in cocktails, and you choose the flavor! And for while you're out and about, there's a scout notebook and bic pen to chronicle any thoughts or musings you might have. Finally, an Art in the Age t-shirt and woven patch. Simply add booze to the allotted slot.

 

It's not your fancy shmancy barware, but that's the outdoor-loving point.

Wish List Event
Thursday, November 21

And, we'll have amazing cocktails from Art in the Age craft spirits, some nibbles and delicious babka (think a spin off rugelach) from Small Batch Baking Co. for you to sample. To round out the fun, we'll be offering 15% OFF your entire* purchase that night, too - just in case you want to get started checking things off your holiday shopping list.

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

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!
