Hi, Kickstarters!

We haven’t updated in while, and for that we apologize. BUT, it is because we’ve been working feverishly to get The Sill up and running …  and today, we are happy to announce that thesill.com is live!

We couldn’t have gotten to this point without your support. THANK YOU ∞.

Please browse the site and take a look at all of the beautiful artist-made plant containers that we were able to have created, much in part to your Kickstarter contributions. We would love any and all feedback on the website and the products. Keep in mind that today is literally the first day the site has been live ... so alert us to any bugs you may find!

We’re now ready to begin delivering to plant lovers in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Yay! PLEASE tell your friends, family, co-workers in the NYC area to check out The Sill. We will be ever so grateful.

Now for the really fun stuff - rewards! We are only waiting on one more reward component, and then we’ll be ready to start sending out your goodies. The tote bags? Adorable, if we do say so ourselves. If we haven’t contacted you for information yet, you can expect to receive a survey very shortly. We are on track to have all rewards out on time, so you won’t have to wait much longer! If you are receiving one of the planters (thimble, small tuck, large tuck), start thinking about what type of plant you’ll pair with it. For inspiration, check out THE PLANTS featured on The Sill website.

Have we said thank you already? Well we’ll say it again! THANK YOU. Your generous hearts have contributed greatly to making our dream of The Sill a reality. We hope you’ll follow our journey as we continue on with the mission to put a plant on every sill. 

Kindest regards,

Gwen & Eliza

P.S. Thought it would be fun to share a few photos from our in-progress office. You can never have too much greenery!
