It's March, and that means we have a new coffee special and this month its EXTRA special.
The March coffee special is from our double buzz menu:
An Irish Coffee!
That's brown sugar, a shot of Jameson Irish Whiskey, topped off with coffee (and whipped cream if you'd like)!
Our coffee from Bridgeport Coffee Company, as always!
Please join us for the JLH Craft & Vintage Market on Saturday, March 16th, from 10a-4p, always at the Friendly Coffee Lounge. This years monthly markets are full of new artists and lots of familiar ones alike. The handmade community of Berwyn is rich with makers, artists and small businesses of all kinds. The monthly C&V Market is a way to showcase, support and share that creativity with our fantastic neighborhood.
The pop-up shops for March 16th are as follows:
~Andria Green is a textile and watercolor artist, specializing in block printed towels, pillows, and more, as well as high quality art prints. Each colorful, handmade item is made with natural fabrics, water based inks, and eco friendly practices.
~ The C&V is thrilled to announce the work of Naomi Martinez, aka Monstrochika. Her works are inspired by Japanese animation and the Superflat art movement, independent comics, nature and growing up in the Windy City . Mediums include traditional illustration, painting, D.I.Y. comics and zines, doll-making and spray-painted mural work.
~Celebrate the art of analog communication. Every card and framed quote is hand typed on a vintage typewriter and adorned with a real vintage postage stamp from my collection. Slight imperfections in the old type and variations in the stamp cancellations mean that each piece is one of a kind.
~Locally made in Riverside, small batch bath, body & home products. Soy candles have a wooden wick so they crackle as they burn. Soaps are made from cocoa, shea butter and rice bran oil. Other popular items made by Hilary are her emulsified sugar scrubs, lotions, dryer balls and shower steamers.
*Naughty Pig Studios
~A combination of Jewelry - brooches and pendants, Soft Sculptures - free standing pillow terrariums, plants, and houses, Ornaments, and Framed Embroideries. The variety of items are visually tied together by a strong but unique mix of techniques and imagery that features the playful combination of domestic artifacts and elements of nature.
*Sur Le Feu
~One of a kind, handmade fabric purses, clothes & accessories inspired by the simple, clean looks of the past. Once a design and fabric are combined, the combination is never repeated and the buyer is guaranteed to have a completely unique fashion accessory. Sur Le Fue enjoys incorporating vintage details and using interesting fabrics leftover from costume designs.
*Charlie & Grace
A children’s consignment boutique that sells brand name and boutique clothing, shoes, outerwear, accessories and books.
