Wellesley Business Buzz: Caskata the latest to enter the home decor scene; think pink with the Ellie Fund

Our roundup of the latest Wellesley MA business news:

Caskata skates into Wellesley Square

Caskata, Wellesley
Caskata, Wellesley Square

Caskata, a dinnerware design company, has opened its offices at 103 Central Street, known as the Hathaway House.

Although not a bricks-and-mortar retailer in the classic sense, owner Shawn Laughlin invites the public to stop in and see a selection of Caskata’s wares through Friday, October 22, 9:20am-5:30pm. Primarily an online retailer, after Friday the spot will be open by appointment only. When we stopped in we browsed a unique blend of classic and contemporary tableware; lead-free, dishwasher-safe glassware; handcrafted charcuterie boards; seaside-themed linens; and more.

Donate $250 or more to the Ellie Fund in person at Caskata and take home a gift of select Hand Blown Quinn Optic Glassware, plus be entered to win a special Collection of Caskata Rose Hand Blown Quinn Optic Glassware. In addition, Caskata will donate 10% of all retail sales of Caskata Rose Quinn Glassware made on through October 23, 2021.

Wellesley goes pink for the Ellie Fund

Ellie Fund, WellesleyMany Wellesley retailers have banded together in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Through Oct. 23, participants are decorating their storefronts pink, hosting an event, donating a percentage of sales, or collecting contributions in support of the Ellie Fund.

The Ellie Fund’s mission is to provide essential support services for breast cancer patients to ease the stresses of everyday life, allowing the focus to be on family, recovery and healing. The foundation provides transportation to medical appointments, light housekeeping, nutritional and grocery assistance, childcare reimbursement, nutritious prepared/delivered meals and integrative therapy services free of charge. No proof of financial need, residency, or citizenship is required.
