Pod is 25!

Last week, Pod turned 25.
Yes, a whole quarter of a century has gone by and we blame YOU. You encouraged. You brought your dogs when ours had passed. You tried something new--repeatedly. You supported the causes. You purchased what you could during more than one recession. You dragged in your out-of-town friends. You stood in line outside during a nationwide pandemic. You made this shop your "third space". You hitched your wagon to our runaway train and put your trays in their upright position as we took off and crash landed into your hearts. How dare you. Thank you. We'll never forgive you. 
Join us Friday, 9/22 and enjoy 25% off your purchase. For our friends further afield, use code WOW25 online. That day, shop hours will be 12-7p. From 5-7p we'll be serving up bubbly beverages. We hope you'll be there. We'd love to raise a glass to you. And humbly, Thank you. X, J

Youth Sweaters / Hats/ Gloves / Winter Coats Drive

Did you child experience a growth spurt this Summer? In the final moments of this balmy Fall, are you just discovering that last years Winter gear needs replacing? We have a solution for you! 

Pod is hosting a new and gently-worn sweater, hats, gloves, and winter coats drive to benefit the kids over at the Cambridge Community Center and gathering items specifically for kids in the 5-12 year age range. Items should be clean and sizes should range from youth S,M,L and even a few adult smalls could be helpful. 

Have anything that is clean and has a lot more warmth to give? Drop it off at Pod during normal biz hours between October 29th - November 8th. We'll take it from there. If you don't have any of the above, we'd love it if you could spread the word. That's always helpful too. XX

Correll Correll Pop-In: May 19-21

Daphne and Vera Correll are twin sisters who share a love for textiles, shapes, and colors. Their fashion collective Correll Correll focuses on experimenting and inventing new processes to make sustainably produced textiles and garments. Their designs are the result of their lifelong shared play with circles, squares, and triangles and the reinterpreting of traditional forms of craft. At the core of their enterprise, is the drive to redefine the relationship between maker, designer, and wearer. 

Founded in 2005, they have textile studios based in New York and Berlin. Their entire collection is exclusively made in their own workshop or in collaboration with other New York City based manufacturers. They are using organic and recycled materials  with an experimental approach to traditional forms of production. 

We asked how their separate, foundational practices inform the designs for Correll Correll.

Daphne: "I studied photography and design during my studies focused on the representation of architecture. My approach has always been interdisciplinary. Combining structures, surfaces, colors, and shapes--balancing functionality and form and placing it in a contemporary context is where I like to put all my focus on."

Vera: "My educational background is in Art and interdisciplinary design, I received My BFA at the Art institute of Chicago with a focus on fiber and material studies and photography. Prior to that, I studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in the Netherlands, in their very conceptual fashion and textiles department. I find that this influences how I approach sustainable strategies in fashion systems and materials innovation for Correll Correll."

For three days--May 19-21, or while goods remain, we are excited to host an edited collection of tees and kids-wear by these two talented women. For a while now, we've admired their work and couldn't be more thrilled that they've agreed to indulge us. You can learn more about Correll Correll here.

10% of all in-shop sales over this three day period will be donated to the Center for Reproductive Rights  We hope you'll come though. X,J
