Two customers came through our door yesterday with a noted ebullience. They described themselves as glassybaby experts. So I hung back, which I can only do for so long...through a stream of wonderful banter between us I learned that the two friends were celebrating at glassybaby. One had just emerged from a grueling hour and a half long defense of her dissertation in a land very far from glassybaby...Math Education. She nailed it. The accompanying friend was buying her dear student friend a 'victory' glassybaby (after all...it took 9 years to reach this marvelous milestone.) Congratulations Dr.Hall. Footnote: in classic 'numbers person' fashion Dr. Hall noted this was the acquisition of her 8th glassybaby.
Jeanine, our esteemed Operations Manager and 'blog scout' conveyed a wonderful story to me. A couple entered our store to buy themselves anniversary glassybaby...self-lauding their decades of happiness together. With incredulity they explained...they learned of our move...meandered to our Madrona store... and found us only one block from where they were married at St. Theresa's on 35th. Poetic serendipity. Happy Anniversary.
We had a Glassybaby 'Salon' last night...in a penthouse condominium downtown. It was a swanky evening...a private party...pomegranate martinis, catered poo poos. and a sea of glassybaby lighting the event. Everyone shopped and basked in the color. It was marvelous...and Mount Rainier was there in the background wearing a gorgeous white evening gown. Keep us in mind for your next girl event.
Endnote...as I was driving my little sweet girl to 'school' today...absolutely unsolicited...she said: "Mommy everybody is nice." It just made me smile.
Until next time, Nicola
