Looking for new blog posts? We’ve moved to newstoneagela.com/blog! Come check out our spiffy new virtual digs! Love, the New Stone Age family.
If June were a color, it would be a shimmering, glimmering, nacreous white. June is a month full of sparkling sandy beaches, blushing brides and moonlit evenings, and those lucky enough to have a June birthday are bestowed with two of the loveliest birthstones: the lustrous pearl and the mesmerizing moonstone. These stunning gems also have a storied history around the necks, arms and ears of women saying “I do,” because their ethereal iridescence is the perfect complement to a flowing white gown. Speaking of “I do,” we at the store are thrilled and excited to celebrate the wedding of one of our own, Alexa, in less than a week. Congrats, Alexa and Russell! Come and check out our extensive collection of pearl and moonstone necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings, and find the perfect gift for a June baby or a bride-to-be.
Happy summer, everyone! Here comes June, ushering in long days, balmy nights and outdoor celebrations. In two weeks (on Sunday, June 16), we will get the chance to honor dads, dadas, daddies, poppas, papas and pops everywhere. No matter what you call your father, show him how much he means to you with a treasure from New Stone Age.
Your father was one of the first to introduce you to the world. This light-up globe provides the perfect accompaniment to his tales of all the places he went before he settled down to become your dad.
Is Dad handy with a knife? Give him one of these beautiful, slender yet masculine wood-handled knives, and a repurposed knife honer made from antique porcelain wire-insulation tubes.
Have you checked out our curated collection of vintage cameras? They make a great gift for the shutterbug father who’s patient enough to teach his kids the timeless art of manual photography.
We recently stumbled across this gorgeous vintage wood typewriter table. It’s in excellent condition, and fits right in with our collection of working vintage typewriters. If your father pines for the simpler days before the distraction of the Internet and misses the tactile tapping of the keys, set him up with this lovely homage to bygone decades and he’ll feel as winsomely wordy as Hemingway. Adorn his desktop with these silly wooden blocks to keep him smiling as he types.
Do you sense a retro theme going on? We must admit that we at the store are drawn to earlier times, when even the most utilitarian objects in the home were designed with beauty and style. This phone is a lovely tricolor homage to the rotary phones of the 40s, 50s and 60s, but it works just like a new phone. Get one for you and one for your father, and the phone’s good looks will inspire you to call him more often.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
Welcome to the merry month of May, everyone! In spite of the rainy day we’re having today, May’s arrival heralds the approach of glorious summer, and we’re all anticipating the long, warm days ahead. We know what you’re thinking. Isn’t there something else that happens in May, some holiday that inspires children everywhere to make elbow macaroni masterpieces and crayon-adorned coupon books?
That’s right, next Sunday is Mother’s Day. Why not pay us a visit beforehand to get Mom a little something special?
Did you know that May is also National Bicycle Month?
In celebration of all that May has to offer, why not plan a scenic family bike ride and picnic for next Sunday? Don’t forget to pack Mom’s favorite treats. Here’s to a sunnier weekend ahead, fit for such lovely adventures.
Hello, dear customers, and Happy April! For those of you who are subscribed to our email list, we’re trying something different this month. While WordPress is a lovely blogging platform, its email subscription service is a little clumsy for our taste. We have a feeling that many of you miss our email updates because they are sent from “WordPress” instead of “New Stone Age,” so starting today we are using Mail Chimp to manage email subscriptions. Hopefully, that will mean that you can find our content more easily. Let us know how you like it.
Now that we’ve got that boring update out of the way, how about that flashy blog headline? It’s true, folks: April is the best month in which to be born, because these spring babies can claim the fabulous, lustrous diamond as their birthstone. Perhaps you have a special April-born someone in your life, or perhaps you are that special someone. Perhaps you just love diamonds as much as we do. If you said yes to any of the above (and really, who doesn’t like diamonds?), take a look at the abundance of beautiful specimens we have in the store.
Since wedding season is fast approaching, we figured this month would also be the perfect time to showcase some of our marriage-worthy rings. Take note, proposal planners: if you’re going to put a ring on it, choose one of these stunners!
Come to New Stone Age for the stone of all stones, the dazzling diamond!
Greetings, customers! Hands up, those of you who are excited about the arrival of spring! The Vernal Equinox, which heralds the first day of the season, is only two days away. Longer days and warmer evenings are on their way, and fruits other than citrus are finally showing up again at farmers’ markets all over town. Welcome spring through your own door with some colorful nods to this season of blossoms and growth.
Now that we’ve helped you bring the spirit of spring into your home, why not put some spring into your own step with some bright-hued jewelry?
Psst! Before we end this post, we’ll let you in on a big secret: Our jewelry sale, which usually lasts only through the end of January, IS STILL GOING! For how long is anyone’s guess, so hurry in to take advantage of our wooden chest filled with baubles that are all 50% off! See you all soon!
What’s that drifting on the ocean breeze? Is it love? We think it is. Heed that amorous muse and head into the store to snatch up some sweets for your sweetie. Check out all the lovey-dovey loot that we’ve gathered for you! Your valentine will be absolutely smitten when you shower him or her with these treasures and a sweet handwritten card.
Are you looking to adorn your lady love with jewels befitting her beauty? We’ve assembled a collection of our most valentine-worthy baubles below. You can’t go wrong with the universal symbolism of hearts, arrows and keys, nor with sweet sayings or delicate diamond-studded rose gold. Tuck a picture of the two of you inside a lovely locket and she will be able to wear you close to her heart. We have something for every budget and every measure of love. And if you’re single, there’s no reason not to give yourself some healthy self-love in the form of a necklace, bracelet or ring – be your own valentine this year!
Happy New Year! As some of you might remember, every January we have two sales: one on Christmas decor and one on jewelry. Both sales will be in effect until the end of the month, so hurry in to get some great deals! We even have a sale on cozy scarves, shawls and pillows, to help you combat the highly unusual chill in the air. Brrr, it’s cold out there! Here’s a teaser of what we have on offer:
Dear customers, thanks for filling our store with joy, jolliness and good cheer this holiday season. As a token of our appreciation, we are offering a 20% off coupon towards any purchase you make in the store between now and the end of the year. This coupon is only available to you, the savvy shoppers who read our little blog. To use the coupon, please print it out and bring it in between now and 6:00 pm on Monday, December 31st. Click on the image below and it will open in a new page for ease of printing. Enjoy our little gift to you, and thanks for making this holiday season a success!
It’s time once again for West Third Street’s annual Holiday Party! We, along with our neighbors along the street, will be staying open later than usual, which is great news for those of us who can’t make it during normal business hours. Alexa will be mulling her famously delicious hot cider to warm you from your nose to your toes while you shop. Mix and mingle with us, get some gift suggestions, and cross off your list, all while having a grand old time.
Speaking of suggestions, are you wondering what Santa will fill those carefully hung stockings with? Perhaps Santa should take a stroll to our evening soiree as well, where he’ll find plenty of tiny treasures fit for stuffing.
We look forward to getting in the Holiday spirit with you this Thursday. Ho, ho, ho!
