This Just In: Mercury Glass

Foursided, and Twosided, just received a fresh batch of mercury glass beauties for your home. These jars look lovely with any decor, and are perfect for those with a love for all-things-Victorian, or anyone who admires shiny things (you know who you are). Both locations have several styles, and sizes, to choose from, ranging from $19.50 to $47 each.

Get Framed: Photo Booths

You Have:
Several friends willing to get goofy.
A handful of singles.
One vintage photo booth (we prefer black & white, but to each their own).
Approximately 5 minutes to wait for your masterpiece to develop.

You Need:
A frame.

Love absolutely everything about photo booths except finding a frame to fit that pesky strip of pictures? We know how you feel. Allow Foursided in Lakeview to come to your rescue with our new photo booth frames. Our custom-cut mats are fitted within black frames, making the perfect home for your photographic souvenir - all for a reasonable $23. Check out our window display for examples, or bring in your shoebox full of photos, and let us frame up your treasures faster than you can smile and say "cheese."

Nourishing Notes

If you are anything like us, when you aren't strolling around town looking at fun cards you are busy stuffing you face with yummy food. If you aren't a foodie yourself, we guarantee you know someone who is, so allow us to make your card purchasing a little easier with these new fun greetings from Nourishing Notes, by Letterform.

We are super excited about carrying this line, partly because we like to support local Chicago companies, but mostly because their cards are so darn cute! Both Twosided and Foursided have an array of card styles, ranging from witty thank you notes: "Shanks. Shank you very much," to funny birthdays: "Oh sheet, I forgot your birthday," and everything in between. Cards are letterpressed with a bold envelope, and have a cooking tip on the back of each greeting. Although these notes are calorie free, giving a card this nice just might inspire your friends to invite you over for a fabulous meal. Bon app├ętit!

Cool Card Wreaths

We love grapevines, boughs, and bows just as much as the next guy, but at Foursided in Andersonville we like to mix things up a bit. We will pass on the dried flowers, and instead add a few vintage cards and antique portraits, voila: our newly created wreaths! Constructed from a circular metal frame and more flashcards than you can shake a stick at, these wreaths make quite a unique and eye-catching piece for your wall. Antique portrait wreaths are $120, and our flag flashcard wreath (keyhole not included) is $85.
