Founded by people who have sons, daughters, parents, cats, dogs, goldfish, and friends who are part of our community, we believe that making an impact should be simple. We at fork + pencil hope that if we give you a fun and interesting way to have an impact, you’ll seize the opportunity. All you have to do is shop.
We use our profits to fund groups that do great work... in the environment, education, the arts, and urban affairs. But we believe fork + pencil is more than just a store. We try to provide a better profile to organizations we support. So you can participate by just browsing. Maybe pick up one of the brochures for an art opening, or the story on a regional environmental group.
Because community starts at home, we carry an interesting selection of books, a variety of letterpress cards, jewelry, children’s toys and wares, and linens. And of course, our mainstay, and the original recycling… antiques.
