Earlier this year, two nascent Instagram accounts caught our eye. This week, we finally get to dish on these two new, women-owned businesses.

Plus, have you made your Halloween plans yet? We’ll offer you some wicked celebration choices.

Happy Thursday!



This Saturday, Anther will launch with a private party - and we’ve got your invite.

Anther is the new jewelry brand specializing in statement pieces that are sustainable and ethically sourced from Ghana, Peru, Mallorca and other far-flung locations. Their bold debut collection features novel shapes and an inventive use of materials, all immensely wearable and available at reasonable prices.

PERK / To join Saturday’s launch party, email info@anther.shop (click this!) to request an invite. This will be your chance to shop the collection before their website launches. Plus, you can count on discounts, drinks and hors d'oeuvres!

Dreaming of


We’re always dreaming of someday having the perfect home or the perfect kitchen…

Someday is today. Now open, Someday is the new shop that brings those dreams to reality with everything from antique graters to French market baskets. Shopowner Audie MacDougall has a decade of retail experience, and this store of treasures is the most exciting expression of her effortless entertaining and decorating. That's all to say, hurry up and go shop at this wonder of a place, buy a few items for your home, your neighbors and your loved ones.

Located at 1st and Broad (you can't miss their sprawling sign), the shop represents the latest chapter in the ongoing renaissance of downtown Broad St. More on that soon...




Halloween x 2

Confession: We take Halloween seriously, so we’re giving you not one, but two must-attend parties. That’s double the costumes and double the trouble…

First up, ICA is smartly combining Halloween festivities with their inaugural fundraiser. On Saturday, October 27, find your wild side at UNTAMED, while supporting the stunning new museum’s mission to offer free admission and free programming to all visitors. Go full costume, or relax a bit with creative black tie.
Saturday, October 27 / 7-10pm

And of course you’ll need proper Halloween plans. For the 31st, follow the Quirk Hotel down the rabbit hole for its second annual Halloween Bash. We intended to cover this last year, but tickets were gone in a blink. Dress in your best Alice in Wonderland costume for a night of dancing, $5 mini-dishes from the Maple & Pine chefs, and a customizable gin & tonic bar. Plus, a costume contest...
