It is that time again and Chicago major league baseball fans await to see baseball headlines as their teams report for spring practice.  "Pitchers and Catchers Report" is the first sign that we are getting ready to start the 2019 season.

The irreplaceable Sawbridge Studioes in Hubbard Woods is closing in April.

Here is their announcement:

Yup. You read that right. It’s time.

For twenty-five years we have had the privilege of working with the greatest customers and finest artisans we could have ever imagined. And, many of these fine people have become good friends in the process. That’s something we treasure most.

We have made the difficult decision to step away from our physical retail operations and put our primary business focus on our website, There we hope to build our web presence and further develop our corporate gift and reward program.

During this transition period and starting immediately, you can look for some incredible values on our remaining floor stock.
Stop into the Winnetka store for details.

Thank you all for 25 great years. 

Bill and Paul
