Hi everyone, I have some fun news to share with you today! We’ve just launched a fun collaboration with fellow paper enthusiast and amazing blogger, Nole Garey from Oh So Beautiful Paper. Once a month, we’ll pop over to OSBP and post on our new ‘How About’ series. There we’ll share our latest obsessions, favorite things from around the shop as well as inspiration beyond. Last month, Joshua and I took the kids on a little roadtrip up North to San Francisco. We tasted and explored our way around the Bay City and packed in as much as we could. (ie. The Ferry Building, Bi-Rite Creamery, Tartine, the Golden Gate Bridge and of course the Cable Cars!) We were lucky enough to have some great hosts, and left the Bay completely inspired. Thanks for reading and hope you’ll love our new column!
Growing up on the East Coast, I have some of the fondest summer memories vacationing “down the shore” in Ocean City, NJ. We’d enjoy our days jumping waves at the beach, followed by fun on the boardwalk. Those nights were spent going on rides, sharing a bucket of caramel corn and playing games. When a shipment of Salty Road salt water taffy arrived in the shop, it brought all of this nostalgia back. Here is a fun Boardwalk round up of things all found at Urbanic!
If you live in the city and have an appointment in the woods, how do you get there? A Road Trip, of course!! In fact, road trips could very well be the vacation. At Urbanic, we think there’s little to complain about being on the open road with some of your favorite people… wind in your hair, playlists on repeat and adventures at every turn. Clearly we’re not the only ones — check out these fun things around the shop that love Road Trips, too! So, where are you headed?
What would summer be without camp?! Around here at troop Urbanic, we’re daydreaming of nature hikes, wildflowers, lake swims, roasting marshmallows and starry-skied nights. But whether out there in the wilderness or on busy city streets, there’s a camper inside of all of us! Here’s a collection of things from those who think so, too. Including some easy ways to earn your Thoughtfulness Badge — sending notes from your “summer camp” is yet another way to keep snail mail alive! And we promise your love won’t get lost in the woods. Scout’s honor. XO
