For some, the isolation of the pandemic has hit especially hard. Social interaction has plummeted, and many of us have been left to be our own cheerleaders as we work from home and miss out on vital time with supportive BFFs. Thanks to n.b. goods’ clever handmade banners, we can cover our walls with eye-catching encouragement to get us through the day. The shop’s designs are bold but not overly trendy — no gold brush lettering or watercolor florals — just the words you need to hear or want to express to others. “Be Afraid, Do It Anyway,” “My Love Will Not Let You Down” and “Keep Going” — they even have a clever “It’s All Your Fault” banner for Preds fans or, I suppose, folks with accident-prone co-workers. Want something more specific? n.b. goods takes custom orders too. I wonder how much it’d cost to get one that says “You Must Get Out of Bed Today, Megan.”
