826 Baltimore: The Instant Heirloom Supply Co.

“At the Instant Heirloom Supply Company, we strive to bring significance and meaning into our customers’ relationship with objects. One needn’t spend an arm and a leg on a jewel encrusted pocketwatch or Civil War era push-broom to pass down to future generations; our Instant Heirlooms are mass produced, with the narrative included in our affordable prices.”
Designed by Andy Mangold, who also design the Rubber Bandit and Monopoly Repackaging.
"The Instant Heirloom Supply Company, a concept “826″ store, sells mass produced goods that have been repackaged and recontextualized with a narrative. The packaging is an attempt to give new life and meaning to manufactured goods bought at dollar stores in Baltimore."
