    For the out-of-town folks: since shipping pints for a Pint of the Month Club membership would be too costly, we're offering a six-month membership to our Cookie of the Month Club! Each month we'll ship you a dozen cookies, made in-house by Mrs. Parlour.

    A pint of your choice, a T-shirt, a sticker, and a pair of complementary logo aprons (pink-on-brown and brown-on-pink) handmade in Durham by Seam Happy! We will ship to out-of-towners, but we’ll substitute some cookies for the pint unless you’re willing to cover the (shockingly high) cost of overnighting ice cream!

    Remember when you could get a double-dip ice cream cone for one shiny nickel? We don’t! But you can get The Parlour’s original price list sign that was mounted to the side of the bus (way too far from the serving window for most people to notice it). If you hold on to it for enough decades, you too can marvel at how cheap ice cream used to be, back in the aughts. Plus everything at the $40 level. PLEASE NOTE: the sign is big, at 42×52 inches, and partially made of aluminum. We’ll deliver it locally (subject to the whims of our work schedule), but if you want it shipped, you’ll need to cover the cost.
