Radio Flyer Pop Up Store at Old Orchard & Giveaway!
Radio Flyer is actually a local company that is celebrating 99 years of making smiles :). Antonio Pasin, a 16 year old boy from Venice born into a family of cabinet makers, came to Chicago without a penny in his pocket. He built his first wagon in 1917, and a successful company was born. He even built a 45 foot statue for the 1933 Chicago World's Fair, and sold miniature souvenir wagons for 25 cents.
In addition to wagons, Radio Flyer also has trikes, ride-ons and more! Charlotte got her first trike last year from my parents, personalized with her very own license plate.
I just dug out this photo of my first trike, and love making the same memories with her that I enjoyed as a kid.
Radio Flyer has come to the North Shore- they are opening a pop up shop at Westfield Old Orchard this summer, and you are invited to celebrate with them. The grand opening is Saturday, May 7th from 10am-9pm in The Cube and includes some fabulous family fun:
