The Heritage duo, Michael and Melissa Salvatore, are continuing their trend of opening multi-function shops. Just down the street from Heritage General Store—where you can pick up your morning coffee, get your bike tuned up, purchase a custom-made bicycle, and catch a movie on a Friday night—you will find the couple focusing on the little ones with Heritage Littles and A Little Photo Studio.
Heritage Littles is a children’s line of toys and wheels designed and produced right here in Chicago. The starting lineup includes a balance bike, wagon, and teepee, accompanied by carefully selected unique kids’ bicycles and bicycle accessories. Littles will share a space with A Little Photo Studio, where Melissa will utilize her degree in photography and her 15 years of experience documenting children and families. The dividing line between the two businesses is none other than a milk n’ cookies bar featuring cookies from Stephanie Izard of the Little Goat Diner. (Need we really say more?)
The creativity and fun doesn’t stop there: in the same space you will also find Smilebooth’s permanent resting spot between events and parties, and you can come snap a selfie against a revolving designed backdrop. Downstairs, you will also find another husband-and-wife team at the helm of AveryHouse, a photography studio that has been capturing important events and milestones for over a decade.
This is a lot to soak in, trust us, we know! To celebrate this new collective space, we invite you to join us during our week of opening events: #lincolncollective
