Recently we discovered the oh-so-charming ‘Dorchester’ bangle bracelets from Triple Decker Designs (seen below is Leslie’s new beloved bracelet with the Dorchester triple decker charm, with the words ‘No Place Like Home’ engraved on the back). Triple Decker Designs is an online only business is run by three sisters who grew up off Bowdoin Street in Dorchester. They started the company to honor iconic Dorchester neighborhoods, parishes and triple deckers that they knew and loved as kids. Bill Forry said it best in a recent op-ed piece in the Dorchester Reporter, ‘ In old Dorchester, life centered around these things: Park benches and pews and three-decker porches where children and their charges congregated and found common bond based on a shared faith, a shared struggle and, typically, a shared ancestry.’.
Following the tragedies that occurred on Monday, April 15th and in subsequent days following, the sisters of Triple Decker Designs wanted to help those in need so they quickly placed an order for Boston Strong charm bracelets. Not only is it a statement of our devotion to our city and it’s citizens, but ALL the proceeds from these bracelets ($20 each) will directly benefit the Richard Family of Dorchester. We think these bracelets make a great gift for Mother’s Day and for anyone who shares Boston pride.
