Travel & Leisure!!!

SUPER exciting news... ACQUIRE is featured in the July issue of Travel & Leisure magazine.
The magazine did a nice story about the North End neighborhood and their favorite local spots.
The publication won't hit newsstands for another week, but if you happen to be a subscriber you should have received your copy.
I am dying to see how the piece turned out! Anyone want to email me a scanned copy of the article?

3/50 Project

A colleague shared some information with me about a new project.
It's called the 3/50 Project, and it is a grassroots campaign designed to "save" independent businesses.

Participation is really simple. Choose your three favorite locally owned businesses, and at those three shops combined, commit to spending $50 a month.

If half of the U.S. population did this, we would generate more than $42 trillion in revenue. For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays local.

So get out there and support your local independent stores!

Industrial Artwork

We get a number of requests from customers for interesting pieces of artwork.
I think our most recent installation fits the bill perfectly.
This set of vintage factory molds is taken from an old foundry in Maine.
We love the three dimensional quality the piece takes on-- as well as the lines/curves it creates in a grouping.
The eight piece set retails for $200.
(Reference pictures have been taken to make re-hanging a breeze.)
