You may have heard the term "New Year, New Me" at some point. Typically, people say that as the clock strikes twelve into the next year. Here at Hello World, we've practicing "New Season, New Us!" While we are 100% still that lifestyle and gift shop you've grown to know and love, we thought we'd spice it up a bit.

For years, Hello World has been somewhat on the brink of doing this. We started with scarves and ponchos, moved on to wraps and kimonos, and now we've finally stocked clothing

That's right! If you come into Hello World (or keep up with our website) in the coming weeks you can officially buy dresses at all lengths, tunics, and leggings! Check out some of what we've got to offer below:

Well folks, it's mid-August! This time of the year means many things for many different people. Maybe you're gearing up for the upcoming school year; your head all full of the quadratic formula and what you'll wear on the first day. Maybe you're planning your final trip of the season; an excursion through Europe or a road trip along the east coast. Or maybe you're just planning to spend the rest of the blazing hot season in your air conditioned bedroom (which, by the way, we totally understand). Luckily, we can help you with 2 out of 3 of those possibilities! 

Whether you're a student or your loved one is, you know that a backpack is a major part of getting an education. With how heavy books are and how long students are expected to carry them, a comfortable backpack is a necessity. But we figured...why can't it be comfortable AND trendy? That's why we decided to start carrying a new brand of the most visually appealing backpacks we've seen in a long time. Check some of them out them out below! 

This bag also comes in a version that features blues and browns

These bags are super pigmented; similar bags in-store come in shades of blue

Not only are they great for school, but they're also perfect for your next backpacking adventure. In these knapsacks, you could easily carry your laptop, a couple pieces of literature, a notebook, pens, pencils, personal items, any chargers you may need, and a light change of clothes. Nothing quite like traveling light in style!

In addition, if your loved one is an athlete, you can't send them off to school without a gym bag! These extremely lightweight bags even fold up into themselves, so you can essentially carry a large gym bag in your backpack and have it take up a tiny amount of space. 

Stop in to Hello World before you set out on your next adventure! Or if you need some time away from your television and A/C.

Blog: Love, Philadelphia

As many of you know, Hello World is located in good ole, always sunny Philadelphia. If there's one thing that Philadelphians have (besides a deep love for Wawa), it's pride. And we get that. We know that we've got great schools, food, history, art...the list could go on and on. 

Which is why we'd like to be a stop on your list of places to pick up souvenirs! For quite some time, we have been selling beautiful Philadelphia themed glasses. Our beloved "PhillyWare" consists of wine glasses, beer glasses, mugs, and a couple other must-haves! Take a look at these beauties: 

That's right, they've got the love sign, the skyline, and a giant pretzel incorporated in there. These are a great gift for someone that is leaving the city or just for someone that loves the city! 

But that's not all! We've upped our game as of Tuesday. Now we have beautiful prints, magnets, and postcards. These great collectables and sendables include the Love Sign, the very famous Rocky statue, the skyline, and City Hall. You can't go wrong!

And for those of you that love the grandiose, we have these truly special large "LOVE" prints in the store in various colors:

Head on into Hello World for some unique Philadelphia themed gifts! 

P.S. If you're looking for a beautiful piece of Philadelphian jewelry, check out these necklaces and earrings!

Here at Hello World, we know how to party. We also know jewelry, but we bet you already knew that. That being said, we figured we'd combine the two and showcase the beautiful work done by our in-house jeweler, Amy Neukrug

If you've been in the store, you will recognize Amy's work as the gorgeous pearls we keep right by the counter. Chances are, you've probably met Amy. She's the really excited one, if you need your memory jogged. 

So if you love pearls or free Prosecco or both, come on down to Hello World this Thursday, April 28th from 5pm-9pm. We'll even put our party music on for you! Remember: Mother's Day is coming up ;)
