Super Smalls is inspired by the joy of the extravagant and the whimsical. Maria Dueñas Jacobs, an experienced leader in the fashion and accessories industry, founded Super Smalls to combine her love for refined, beautiful, and ornate objects with her passion for all things fun and kid-centric. Born out of the idea that no matter how many beads and kids jewelry her daughters were given, they always wanted to play with mom’s jewelry instead. Taking inspiration from glitzy, grown-up stuff—decadent fine jewelry and bold fashion—and translating it for a child’s eye. For more information, visit supersmalls.com.

BARRINGTON YOUTH & FAMILY SERVICES’ APRIL 17 VIRTUAL GALA
Barrington Youth & Family Services (BYFS) has seen a significant increase in clients due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As is no surprise, the pandemic worsened existing mental health problems and led to more cases of anxiety and depression among children and adolescents because of the unique combination of the public health crisis, lack of school, missed milestones, social isolation, and economic recession. BYFS is increasing scholarships to families that were affected financially by the pandemic and does not expect the need to subside. For their spring event, BYFS will be holding a virtual silent auction April 14 to 17, ending with a live auction. For more information, visit barringtonbyfs.org/news-events.
