ALL THE THINGS, Our Journal
Today we launched OUR HOLIDAY GUIDE on our site. And it is truly, from our Family to yours.
We have to be honest. It’s been the toughest Holiday Season to navigate in our lives. Muddling through the uncertainty of the election. Then the challenge of re-designing our spaces to be as safe for you & our team as possible. The past few months have been full of covid scares, ops management puzzles, & rebuilding our inventory & collections to thoughtfully reflect the life that is happening. Then we put all of those things on the Internets to create, quite formidably, an e-commerce site that is robust AF, easy to use and reflects the shops that you visit IRL. One that you can shop from the safety & coziness of your home. And this weekend you can get your gifts delivered same day to your door through @postmates!!!
Moving in on a decade, 3 kids & 3 stores later we’re just so happy to be able to still chase this dream. The Holidays feel so different. Many of us sacrificed traditions to keep our communities safe. It’s a standard we hope to uphold while still bringing some holiday cheer- sharing in the moments to help you find the perfect thing for someone you love. Our little crew has been busting their asses. We’re a very lean team so please be patient with us. Peter & I feel so fortunate to have found a team that is so meticulous about the safety of our community. They take such incredible pride in the work they do, and we’re here to help you, from a distance and super safely IRL.
It’s been a challenge to create our Holiday Hours, but for now here they are:
tues-sun 9-4 closed mon
Culver City @platformla
open everyday until 12.24.20
sun-thurs 12-5 fri & sat 11-5

Wishing you all a peaceful Holiday Season full of love,
Peter & Sophie
As a family, we are simply devastated. Not only did Chadwick Boseman bring to life a character in a world beyond our wildest fantastical imaginations. He gave us and our children new dreams to dream.
We will forever cherish his undeniable body of work that brought to life the stories of some of the most important Black Men in American History.
When you purchase a greeting card from us online, today through Election Day (81 more days to go), we’re going to send you one of these stamps for each card you buy so you can send it to a loved one.
When we closed over 2 weeks ago we did it to make a plan for operating in the new normal. We knew we couldn’t keep doing things the way we were & just add delivery.
So we spent our 12 days closed assessing the new world, determined to continue to serve our community for what we anticipated would be a long road.
KEEP THE MAKER'S MAKING!
A few human beings longing for connection / a small printmaking workshop based out of Oakland, California. They specialize in hand-printed & assembled objects, and are blessed to be able to make them in a small studio by an Oakland farmhouse with a lemon tree.
I want to level with you all. Broome St. General, owning it, running it, our 12+hour workdays, at least 6 days a week. It’s all a dream come true. I love the humility of hard work. I know I’m teaching my kids to work hard for their dreams.
I’m grateful to our team that is made up of people who are also pursuing their dreams, but they are practical. They have bills to pay and I believe they all will be famous tomorrow (or the day after that)... but until then, I’m glad we have built a business that can support them while they pursue their dreams.
