I love receiving emails with photos attached...dimensional...and even better when they hail from New York City, the other coast, where glassybaby resides and flourishes. A darling customer, Barbara, shopped at 555 Hudson, in New York, adding two glassybaby to her 'already holding,' two glassybaby at home. Then a visual epiphany occurred. While walking past 4 gorgeous, full length gowns, in a New York City, window front, Barbara had a color deja vu. The gowns were a perfect match in color to her line up of 4 glassybaby at home in her windowsill. We love it...amusing glassybaby couture. See the visual parallel above. Thank you Barbara for providing this whimsy.
Speaking of New York, Lee was on a press junket in New York City this week, the fruits of which we will detail soon. Our New York store continues to emerge and it is exciting.
A treasured customer and glassybaby friend named Anne Marie Pickels called while Lee was away. I had the pleasure of fielding her call. Bear with me as I recount our ticklish exchange:
Anne Marie: 'I am calling with an idea for glassybaby.'
Nicola: 'Wonderful, what is it?'
Anne Marie: 'I have 8, three week old, Labrador puppies in my possession and I thought that maybe glassybaby would like to do a photo shoot with them incorporated.'
Nicola: 'Anne Marie, you are absolutely prophetic. We have a professional photo shoot scheduled for this Thursday.'
Anne Marie: 'I know I am pathetic. I just love these puppies and I love glassybaby. I know, it is pathetic.'
Nicola: 'No, no, not "pathetic"..."prophetic"....prophecy.'
Peels of laughter ensued. I had to recover this one quickly. I absolutely adore Anne Marie and something she is not...is pathetic. Funny exchange.
Endnotes...if you have a moment...join us on Facebook. So many 'fans' are sharing wonderful anecdotes and photos of their signature glassybaby mixes. It is wonderful to see the personal translation of glassybaby beauty. Easter is next and then Mother's Day. For the record, my top glassybaby pick for Easter is robin's egg, and for Mother's Day, BFF (best friends forever.)
More Soon. Happy Spring. Nicola
