you need to know about shinola


Have you heard of Shinola? I originally discovered them when I saw their beautiful watches

And was instantly delighted to see they were made in my home state of Michigan. Detroit has had a rough few years and it's always thrilling to see a company doing amazing things there. 

When I was home a few weeks ago, I asked my parents if they knew about it. 

You mean the bikes they said? 

Surprise! They also make beautiful bikes

And bags

And journals.

How is so much talent housed in one single company?

They make things I didn't even know I wanted, like this copper bell

So now I'm just having fantasies about riding around on my Shinola bike (with my Shinola bell), checking the time on my Shinola watch and carrying my Shinola cross body bag

Totally normal.
