We can't wait to see you in Merchantville - where our specialty is Halloween!

Craft Making Club

The Merchantville Makers met last Thursday and made Fall Gnome Wreaths from Dollar Tree Halloween decorations. This group did an amazing job! Thank you to everyone who came out to make with us and I can’t wait to see what we create in our October class.

Meet Cub & Co.

In December Merchantville welcomed entrepreneur, Kimberly “Kim” Wallace, and C.U.B. & Co. to town. Her boutique storefront, located at 23 North Centre, and online shop, feature unique mommy and me T- shirt designs. C.U.B. (Celebrating an Unconditional Bond) & Co., is a brand that showcases and celebrates the special connection between mom and child with cute and edgy t-shirt and onesie collections.  Born and raised in North Jersey, Kim migrated to Philadelphia for college where she received a Master’s in physical therapy then, settled in Burlington township with her young daughter. The idea for C.U.B. & Co. was hatched in 2017, with  mommy and me tees that represented Kim and her daughter. Fast forward to 2020 when her business grew from creating her own designs to custom orders and expanding beyond tees - a business owner's dream come true and shop where you'll be sure to find the coolest, most imaginative items and this. Please stop by C.U.B. & Co. for your personal or gift-giving needs and check out the apparel on her website and Facebook page. Whatever the occasion, be assured that you're supporting an awesome brand. Kim will also soon be hosting small create and craft events!
