Georgia's Salem Gold Coin Hunt Returns in 2020!

Posted by on

One of our highlights last October in Salem was 9 year old Georgia's gold coin hunt. It has returned this year with the help of her friends at the Peabody Essex Museum, with this mask wearing "Witch" on a shiny gold coin. We've scaled things back a little this year and are only hiding coins on Saturdays and Sundays in October, but tune in to Georgia's Instagram page HERE to read the clues and help you on your hunt for gold in Salem! All hiding locations are outdoors, and please wear a mask and socially distance while looking! Can't make it to Salem this year? Check out Georgia's online store and pick up some of her spooky new products, since she won't be out vending this month like she has in past years!

Georgia's Rainbow Pride Pin raises $4,806.36 in donations for Salem, MA based nAGLY

Posted by on

Sometimes the littlest thing can make the biggest difference. Earlier this spring, Georgia was drawing a rainbow. I (her dad) thought it would make a cute enamel pin, we had just been introduced to nAGLY (North Shore LGBTQ Youth) in Salem and the great work they do in the community for LGBTQ youth. We met with Executive Director Steve Harrington and pitched our idea to him, to make an enamel pin where all profits would benefit nAGLY. We then approached our friends Kate and Jamie at Roost & Company and asked if they would consider selling them too and also donate their profits from them, and they agreed. Last week, after just a few months of sales, we are super proud to announce that Georgia’s little rainbow helped us collectively raise $4,806.36 for nAGLY! Thank you to Roost, nAGLY, and everyone who supported our efforts through the sale of Georgia’s rainbow Pride pin, sticker and patch! Photo courtesy of Christopher Padgett.
