Fotostrap

IMG_8535

A good camera strap has been the unsung hero of our last several photo shoots. We’ve been getting more and more adventurous in our choice of settings — the latest involving a three-story climb up dark stairs to the snow-covered roof of a vacant downtown building. And every time, our cameras have remained unscathed by the elements, largely due to a sturdy, comfortable strap that kept it from being dropped between shots or set down on unfriendly surfaces.

We use Fotostrap, an American-made strap that’s both sensible and attractive. The straps come in a variety of colored canvas options with leather accents, brass hardware and a non-slip removable shoulder pad. Plus, with each purchase, Fotostrap makes a contribution to Fotolanthropy, a non-profit that uses film to tell the stories of inspiring people who are overcoming adversity. These straps are the perfect combination of style + function + craftsmanship, and we couldn’t be happier with the $85 price tag.

We currently have a handful of colors available both in store and online. And if there’s a particular color you’d like us to stock, let us know on our Facebook page.

Our friend Kelly Beall of Design Crush spent some time with a Fotostrap on her shoulder recently. Kelly has impeccable taste and a keen eye for good value. You can read her review of her experience and check out gorgeous photos (like the ones below) of her Fotostrap in action over on her blog.

Let It Snow

All the snow and ice this week jogged our slushy post-holiday-season memories… And we realized we’d never announced the winners of our snowy day Instagram contest back in December. Our winners were all alerted, of course, and the $15 store credit prizes were duly distributed. But we’d like to go ahead and showcase the winning entries, even though the recognition is seriously belated. We were so thrilled with how fantastic the entries were — in fact, we couldn’t decide on just five favorites, so we awarded seven instead!

Here are the winning photos, in no particular order. Enjoy! And thanks to all of you who entered for giving us a glimpse into your cozy weekend fun.

A Generous Holiday Season

spreadcheer

During a time of year when it’s easy to get cynical about all the holiday hype in the air, we’re extra grateful for you, our kind-hearted and thoughtful customers. Your excitement about finding gifts that say “I love you” in just the right way reminds us that you don’t have to choose between presents and true Christmas spirit. The care with which you shop embodies all that is good and selfless about the holiday season, about living a life of generosity and warmth.

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your families and traditions as you shop in our store and bring home our goods to lovingly share. We’re so proud of what you’ll find on our shelves — finely crafted products that we carefully scouted or made by hand with you in mind. And we’re excited that as you give these gifts, you’re spreading true holiday cheer — “peace on earth and good will to men” — not just to those on your Christmas list but to those who could use a little extra happiness this year. The stories wrapped up in the generosity of each of your purchases mean hope and help for a child in foster care, or a single dad working overtime or a young African woman saving for college. Your gifts really are good things for all.

We’ve planned lots of festivities over the next few weeks to make your Christmas shopping memorable and rewarding — Shop Good pop up shops, free treats and goodies, special discounts. But we’re most looking forward to wishing you a very happy holiday and sending you home with full arms and a full heart.

Giving Thanks

Holiday Giveaway 1

This season of thanksgiving and cheer is our favorite time of year and we can’t wait to share it with you! As a token of our gratitude for our loyal customers, we’d like to invite you to enjoy a free cup of hot coffee and a slice of pie with us at Shop Hop on Automobile Alley tomorrow night from 6–9pm. We’ll also be giving a complimentary holiday ornament with the first 50 purchases, a glass globe filled with woodsy treasures, handcrafted by our Shop Good team. You can get a glimpse of all of the activity — including Black Friday preview sales, free drinks, and live music — happening tomorrow night on Automobile Alley here.

While you’re warming up and doing some holiday shopping, you’ll be able to preview our collaborative art show with our current charity partner, Citizens Caring for Children. In October, we helped at their annual fall carnival, Haunt & Harvest, a free night of fun for children in foster care of all ages with candy, games, prizes and costumes. At our art booth, we encouraged each foster child to create a painting of their favorite day. And the results are incredibly endearing and entertaining. These one-of-a-kind pieces, with a silhouette and short bio of the young artists, will be available for purchase at tomorrow’s Shop Hop, and throughout the remainder of the holiday season. 100% of the proceeds from each art piece will go back to CCC, helping to create a joyful christmas for each child and their foster family.
