Kitchenette

Come in to our sister-store Kitchenette: Kitchenette isn’t your typical kitchen store – you might say we’re…smaller than average. In mid-2007, Black Tie Formalwear/Tips Uniforms decided to turn the basement of its Midtown Village retail location into a store selling fun, funky housewares and gadgets. The cramped, subterranean space really wasn’t so different from your average urban kitchen, but with a splash of color, a little flair for design, and an awful lot of creative storage solutions we made a go of it. Named Philly's Best Kitchen Store by Philadelphia Magazine! It has since grown and is now at a new location: 117 S 12th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 Phone: 215-829-4949 Visit us online at www.shopkitchenette.com Stop in today for Cookware, Bakeware, Aprons, Gadgets, Gifts, and more!

Bronzed

Now Open: Bronzed!

Visit Bronzed Airbrush Tanning, located on the lower level at 1120 Walnut Street.

It’s no secret that a tan makes us appear slimmer, younger, and sexier. However, it’s important to keep in mind that almost 90% of the visible changes attributed to aging are caused by the sun. Sunless tanning is not only the smart alternative because it provides all the same benefits without the exposure to ultraviolet rays; but in addition, it can minimize the appearance of skin imperfections and eliminate the concern of tan lines. Custom airbrush tanning and body contouring also creates the opportunity to obtain any shade of tan one might desire- from a subtle glow to a deep, tropical bronze.
