Under the same ownership as the White Dog Café  next door, this gift shop is nestled into a row of Victorian brownstones on the fringe of Penn’s campus. From handmade candles out of Africa to a stuffed cat made from recycled sweaters and yarns, each item has a story to tell.
You’ll also find a small, interesting book collection, and toys for both pets and kids. The only common thread among the store’s diverse offerings is that all the merchandise was carefully chosen to contribute to the good of the planet.
Whether made from recycled materials, supporting the work of local artists and craftspeople, or with a percentage of proceeds supporting other good causes, this is a place where you’ll feel good spending your money.
