IMG_0978IMG_0980Modern Materials Tray, Placemats, and Napkins!

A favorite store is closing, and it is a heartbreaking reason why. Modern Materials is an AMAZING business started from scratch by Sheri and her husband. They had a beloved store in Salt Lake City, which closed due to Sheri’s battle with cancer. About a month ago, they reopened a store in Sugarhouse called Habitat by Modern Materials, which is AWESOME!! Sheri donated these fun napkins and tablecloths for the giveaway! Lyndsey added a bright orange tray she bought there, which is great to display cupcakes.

Sadly, though, Sheri emailed Lyndsey to tell her that she has been diagnosed with MS and is still fighting tumors, and will be closing on a permanent basis.  wanted to share that they are having a sale, effective now in Salt Lake City…more details will be in a separate post. They are located at 1297 Miller Avenue. Lyndsey is hoping they will still be able to operate their online store,, which features “affordable modern accessories and lighting.”
