There are those who are wrapping up their holiday checklists long before Thanksgiving even rolls around and those who worship the overnight shipping button. Well, Heritage is here to please all types with the pre-Thanksgiving unveiling of our new stunning frame, the Jane. The Jane is dolled up and has places to go with her colorful wire basket, elegant swoop frame and upgraded components. Even though she stands out with her punch of color, she matches the rest of our locally handcrafted Heritage bikes in quality. The days are getting shorter and colder so why not bring some colorful hope for Spring ahead and gift the lady in your life with The Jane.Or you could always buy her another pair of socks.

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’spermanent 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
