Declaration of the week...people read their newspapers, especially the business section. Cecelia Goodnow, an intrepid Seattle Post Intellingencer reporter, encamped with us for hours on February 15th, which led to her thorough, wonderful piece on glassybaby in the Feb. 16th edition of the P.I..(Check it out.) Her article began with a sophisticated compliment: "There's something sensual and slightly improbable about glassybaby(s,) the hand blown, color saturated tumblers that have become darlings of the design world." The 'one-two punch' was this compliment followed by my favorite glassybaby simile to date: "As round and fat as laughing Buddhas..." We had a crush of business from this wonderful feature.
And in the same week this came from customer Peppe Enfield (I covet her name): "...to have found you again! Thanks to an excellent article in the Seattle PI I now know where you disappeared to. We live by Greenlake and I used to buy gifts for special occasions in your shop, once carrying 7 glassybaby in my backpack when I went to Sweden to visit my family back there. People thought I was crazy, it's like giving the baker's children bread, after all, but each family member loved the gift, carefully chosen as to color and feel."
Peppe continued... beautifully lauding the glassybaby covenant of giving to Cancer causes. So, globe trotting to Sweden and the invocation of Buddha...it was a good week.
Endnotes...again, the words of others...Tracy of Bellevue sent herself some glassybaby...taking the time to include this note: "A friend gave me some for Christmas...she warned me I was going to get hooked...she was right!"
Then this...I noticed Kathryn ordered a gift set named "Best Friends"...it went to her sister...so sweet.
Thanks for friendship and Karma and the words of others that celebrate glassybaby...you touch us daily.
Until Next Time, Nicola
