Philisophy for Kids’ Cancer

Go get yourself a bottle of Oatmeal Raisin because Philosophy will be donating 100% of the net proceeds of their oatmeal raisin high foaming shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer through October 15th.

Cookies for Kids’ Cancer is an organization that was created to raise awareness of and funds for pediatric cancer research. But it all started with a kid fighting cancer and his parents’ desire to help him and others.

When 2-year old Liam was diagnosed with a deadly form of pediatric cancer called Neuroblastoma, his family learned quickly it is a cancer that only about 30% of children survive. They were shocked to hear the reason for such terrible odds was directly related to how little money was being spent on research by both the government and the pharmaceutical industry. Pediatric cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 18. Why then is it not a priority to develop new and better treatments for the children of our nation and the world? It is this very question that prompted Liam’s mom and dad, Gretchen and Larry, to get involved and to do all they could to help save their son.

Closing Sale at Findables

June 30, 3009
For immediate release

WHAT: Closing Sale at Findables

WHEN: Immediately through end of August

WHERE: Findables, 1643 N. Milwaukee Ave; and Store B Vintage 1472 N. Milwaukee Ave

INFORMATION: One of Chicago’s original “lifestyle” stores, Findables, is closing its doors at the end of August. Opened in November 1985, owner David James Ginople honed his eye for classy gifts and whimsical decor at both Marshall Fields and Bergdorf Goodman, where he worked as a fashion buyer. Leaving Bergdorf Goodman due to a fervent “love and belief in Chicago,” David has always been an innovative buyer, incorporating vintage merchandise into the Findables’ inventory mix long before the retro-chic look became popular. Findables has consistently enjoyed a reputation as a delightful destination for gift givers of all age groups and prices ranges, ultimately becoming the “the premiere independent Christmas retailer” in Chicago. “Perhaps that’s how I got the name ‘Mr. Christmas’ — or ‘Mr. Scrooge’ depending on who you talk to!?” David said recently.

Customers both old and new are encouraged to stop by Findables and say hello to David and his dachshund, Suzzy, as well as to purchase many of the shop’s favorite finds at 20% to 75% off now through the end of August, including their signature line of tableware and accessories, Mac Kenzie-Childs. Deeper discounts of 50% to 75% off on all Easter, Halloween, and Christmas items are also currently available.

Happily, David’s interest in vintage merchandise inspired his second store, Store B Vintage, featuring a well-edited and pristine collection of vintage and designer clothing, handbags, and home furnishings. David plans to carry many of the bestselling product lines from Findables at Store B Vintage in the near future.
