Many thanks to all who came to our "Open House" last night! We hope everyone had as good a time as we did. Mimi (Mimi Graney of Union Square Main Streets) wrote a wonderful article about the store in the USMS November newsletter and mentioned it...thanks so much, Mimi! You're a great cheerleader for everyone in the Union Square business community!)
I'd intended on taking pictures of the festivities, but apparently I was having such a good time that I forgot about it completely! What a dunce! Oh, well...I'll take some pictures tomorrow and update this site so that you can see how we have rearranged the store. The "ladies' clothing boutique" is now a reality...
Thanks so much to Amy, the delightful owner of Artifaktori in Davis Square, for allowing us to fill our closet with vintage clothing from her store. For those who have not yet visited Artifaktori (on College Avenue) I suggest that you high-tail it over there! What a great store...so full of interesting treasures from the past. Amy has a great eye (I admire her taste and high regard for so many of the esoteric items that I value) and she has a wonderful sense of humor, too! Her assistant Amanda is a doll...extremely talented and personable, too! A good time is guaranteed!
Peggy, our friend from Concord brought us the most wonderful Victorian clothing items...a couple of dressing gowns, petticoats, Christening gowns, a long-sleeved night gown and baby dress...all in white...look for them very soon! (Such great Christmas gifts!)
Sharon's friend Richard brought us a miniature printing press, portable typewriter and a wonderful book about the pleasures one could have in circa 1952 Boston! Thanks so much, Richard! They've proven to be great conversation starters!
Sandra's friend Sandy brought us a lovely bouquet of flowers and a "Good Luck" balloon that Sky comandeered immediately upon sight!
I'm glad to have met Jenn Pici who teaches yoga at the Shobu Aikido dojo on Allen Street, near Target. I've been meaning to take a yoga class for...hmmm...about 12 years, now! No more excuses, I guess!
So many, many people to mention, but I'll simply say, once more, Thanks so much, everyone, for helping us celebrate our new endeavor!
New photos will be coming along soon!
