Blog: Just Throw It In The Bag!

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: Beach Day? In The Bag!

Blog: Beach Day? In The Bag!

A few months ago, my blog posts spoke heavily about getting ready for and anticipating the warm weather. Hopefully you took it seriously, because the warm weather is here! Today's high in Philadelphia is 86 degrees. Eighty-six! 

What that means is it's beach weather. It's time to grab your sunscreen, towels, portable phone charger, Wawa hoagie, and a flask that's totally not filled with anything they don't allow at the beach and head down the shore. Once you've got all the essentials, you'll need somewhere to put it all! 

As per usual, Hello World has got you covered. You may or may not know that we have a sale going on right now. If you frequent this blog, the store, or our Instagram account, you're already hip to that! 

Obviously, this is great news. The even better news? ALL of our beach bags are 50% off! Take a look at what we've got in store for you:

They're all so cute AND convenient! Pop on in during our sale to check them out.

Blog: You Wanted A Sale, You Got A Sale!

You read that right, folks. Sale time! We've officially kicked off the Annual Hello World Spring/Summer Sale! And have we got some great deals for you.

Let's start with the lowest portions of the sale and work our way up!

First up, we've got the 10% off category. This includes all the jewelry in the store and our best-selling socks! Check out some of what we've got to offer: 

P.S. We just got a bunch of new jewelry in and all of those pieces are also included in the sale!

The bulkiest part of our sale is the 20% off category. This includes home, kitchen, bathroom, baby, and bags. Which basically means MOST of the store is 20% off. There's way too many things to photograph them all, but here's a quick sample of what you could grab!

Finally, the beloved 50% off category. Some of these deals are just unbelievable. As we were marking them all down, I was in shock at what we were putting in the 50% off category. It includes furniture, bedding, gorgeous home decor, select bags, and various travel items. Take a look at some of it here:

If you plan on grabbing some of the furniture from the 50% off section, you may want to act fast! We've already sold quite a few staple pieces.

Remember folks, what you see here is only a snippet of what we've got in store for you. Sometime this summer, stop on in to see everything else! You might want to come sooner rather than later...because I'm about to snatch it all up myself!

Blog: Love, Philadelphia

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!
