Downtown Welcomes Bloom

With kids, friends, family, and lots of supporters in tow, the Downtown Ithaca Alliance welcomed Bloom to the Ithaca Commons with an official ribbon cutting. Although we refrained from getting teary eyed, we were very moved by the words of Philly DeSarno and Gary Ferguson. Persistence pays off, indeed! Thanks to everybody who helped us get here. What an exciting adventure!

We Did It!

After months of planning, hard work, excitement, disappointment, and dreaming of our business, we have signed a lease and are getting ready to open in November! We’re so thankful for the guidance of the Downtown Ithaca Alliance and can’t wait to open on The Ithaca Commons. Stay tuned for updates and info!

We’re Finalists!

The Downtown Ithaca Alliance has chosen Bloom as a finalist in their Race for the Space contest! We’re so thrilled to be part of such an exciting competition and can’t wait to continue planning our fun, artful, educational, and recreational space for families in and around Ithaca.
