Upcycled Handmade Chicago Coasters

Artisan: Page Free
Made In: Chicago, Illinois
Cause: Trio Animal Foundation

[CHICAGO] Share your love for the wonderful Windy City with a unique set of handmade, upcycled Chicago coasters!

All the classic city icons are here:

"C": The John Hancock Center
"H": The CTA Train Icon
"I": The Willis Tower (still known as the Sears Tower to Chicagoans)
(Heart): The Chicago Flag

Each set of four coasters is handmade locally by Joelle Scillia of Page Free. She upcycles pages from books to create each design, affixing them with decoupage, then draws and paints the clever Chicago icons on all-natural sanded hardwood discs cut only from fallen trees. 

Each wooden coaster has been treated with an all-natural wood finisher. The tops of each coaster also have been coated with a protective sealant to ensure the art's durability. This means your coasters are water-resistant; simply wipe clean with a damp cloth. (Just don't submerse them in water.) 

They're the perfect Christmas gift, hostess gift, new-home gift or gift to yourself! And they're a gift that gives back--Local Universe will donate 10 percent of our proceeds to Chicago's Trio Animal Foundation, which provides medical care for homeless pets. Learn why this particular charitable organization is so important to Joelle.

Every hand-drawn coaster is one-of-a-kind, with a unique story, thanks to the different pages used for each design. Get your set...and get one for a friend!
