Blog: Sorry, Can't Hear You Over All The Deliciousness!

Everyone employed at Hello World has a major sweet tooth. Seriously, every last one of us has trouble resisting a chocolate bar, toffee, popcorn...any type of snack, really. That's why we need you to rid us of these!
About a week ago, we started getting in huge shipments of chocolate and other candies. It's starting to get to us. Little by little, we keep picking a piece for ourselves. We feel guilty! We want to share!

If you're looking for a great gift for the holidays or just want to amp up your repertoire of the different types of chocolates you've tried in your life, you absolutely need to pay us a visit. Our flavor selections include pumpkin spice, cinnamon horchata, pigs n taters, just to name a few--and that's just for the chocolate bars!

Check out what else we've got in store for you:

If you can resist these, we'll eat our hat! (Which, btw, we have plenty of.)

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.

Here at Hello World, we believe that your bathroom should be just as beautiful as the rest of your home. While it may seem like it's just a room you get clean in, it's so much more than that!

Did you know that the Kardashians completely redo all of their bathrooms for any events they host? Treat your own bathroom like you're a Kardashian! 

Anyway, we just got a bunch of new items in the store that will look amazing in any lavatory! Check them out here:

Blog: Jewelry On Point!

Blog: Jewelry On Point!

If you've ever been into the Hello World store (at 3610 Sansom St. in Philadelphia for those of you that want to come pay us a visit), you already know how much we love jewelry. We've got it all; necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, necklaces that can also be bracelets, pearls, stones, glass...the list can truly go on and on. 

What you may not know (unless you came into the store today) is that we've totally revamped how we are displaying our beloved jewelry! The very crafty owner of the store, J, has been hard at work to make the jewelry section as accessible as possible. That means we did away with the glass case and implemented a beautiful cork table.

This big change means that you no longer have to travel through the store to browse the jewelry! Enough talking about it, though. Take a look! 

That's right everyone...Cork!! Everywhere!! We think it looks pretty classy over in the jewelry department. Stop in and let us know what you think!
