Millie’s Hallmark Selling Ceramic Coasters Featuring Historic Mount Prospect Photos

millies-hallmark-coaster-set-of-4If you are searching for a unique “Mount Prospect” gift this holiday season, especially considering the fact that we are about to enter Mount Prospect’s Centennial year, stop by Millie’s Hallmark, 1024 S. Elmhurst Rd., Mount Prospect.

They have recently commissioned a unique line of four absorbent ceramic tile coasters sporting four different sepia-tone historic photos of Mount Prospect – the original train station, a 1950s era automobile driving past the water tower, the Central School and the Busse General Store. All of the photos were provided by the Mount Prospect Historical Society.

The boxed sets, which sell for $44.95, were created by a Chicago area artist as part of Millie’s effort to promote local artisans. Each coaster is individually signed.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the coaster sets will be donated to the Mount Prospect Historical Society as they work to complete the restoration of the 1896 Central School.

For more information, call 847/593-8288.
