We’re in leafy Mt Airy Village, across from Weavers Way (food) Co-op, Big Blue Marble Bookstore, Wild Hand, the Nesting House, Village Acupuncture Project and the High Point Café. The neighborhood has been studied by Harvard, the café was featured in Oprah’s magazine, and the community highlighted by Money Magazine which says it is the “best neighborhood” in Philly. The city’s first bird sanctuary is a few blocks away. Parking is free. That is, come see us and stay awhile.
* We live and work in this building so it's usually easy for us to say "yes".
This season we've opened up our whimsical blooming Typewriter Garden to showcase typewriters. Many thanks to Lindsay Weightman for conceiving of this space as such a bountiful place and making it happen. And to Ashley Gehman, industrial designer and stylist, for helping to re-deploy the garden for community use last year. Her edgey delightful elements provoke endless smiles. This year, we are abiding by all hygiene guidelines and visits are by appointment
