Rockford Art Deli's Sweatshirt Christmas Ornaments

I worked at Rockford Art Deli when these ornaments were first revealed a few years ago and I was obsessed with them!  They offer tiny crewnecks and hoodies with "Rockford" and "(815)" on them.

Perfect for your 815 lovin' friends!  These do sell fast, so grab one while it's still in stock!

If the mini ornaments aren't enough, then take a look around the entire boutique for other local gifts; blankets, mugs, pint glasses, stickers, magnets, sock monkey gear, candles, notebooks, outdoor gear, and so much more.

Why should you support shops like Rockford Art Deli? 

I'll give you 4 reasons:

#1: It's locally owned & all about sustainability in their products!

#2: Rockford Art Deli gives back. 

RAD has already donated $13,494 to local & regional organizations in 2022.

#3: They are 1% for the Planet!  

Rockford Art Deli donates 1% of their gross sales to a local non-profit focused on taking care of this earth.

#4: They have a shop dog, Pepper, who is the sweetest pup! 

She will greet you at the front door and upsell you on everything.  She's a great saleswoman.

So, shop local this Holiday season and pick up an adorable sweatshirt ornament when you make your next visit to Rockford Art Deli!
