Family of Things was founded by Sara Jacobson to support and promote beautiful objects, along with the stories of their origins, materials and creators. With a Masters in Designed Objects from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Sara became well-acquainted with the history of design, the process of making, and the value of craft and the creator. After living in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco for 13 years, frequenting design shops to collect & gift well-made objects in those cities and during frequent travel, she saw an opportunity to bring the concept for Family of Things back to her hometown of Omaha.

Based in Omaha, NE in the beautiful historic Little Bohemia neighborhood, and surrounded by like-minded, women-owned shops selling independent goods The Chute, Dusk Goods & Gifts, and The Greenhouse.
