Relationships define glassybaby in so many ways. One relationship is that which we have with the wonderful Diana Brown, who hails from Roseburg Oregon. This name may have a ring to it for you, she is a frequent fan, friend, contributor to our Facebook presence. Diana is a kind of patron, south-town, saint for us, and we always welcome her phone orders and ebullient emails to customer service.
Finally I got to meet her (see cute photo above.) She and her husband Steve made the I-5 exodus to our flagship store in Madrona. Dianna received an A+ during her Seattle Cancer Care Alliance check up. She is now 5 years strong...cancer free (hallelujah.) A car ride up the hill to glassybaby was a celebratory procession, with her husband Steve. I dove in as torch bearer for them...lighting glassybaby is a sacred passage...the top picks always emerge. It was such fun to help Diana and Steve. She always buys for others, but, as she quipped, light heartedly, in an email, her recipients must "be worthy."
Steve and Diana were fascinated by the process of making glassybaby. I stood shoulder to shoulder with them and gave the glassybaby 'crash course.' They are now versed in the birth of a glassybaby. It is sheer delight to share this with an interested and invested audience.
Archival glassybaby t-shirts were dispensed to Diana and Steve. Lee was in...serendipitously...and gave a warm welcome to our Roseburg friends. The hour passed meaningfully and reminds my why we are....
More soon, Nicola
p.s....more glassybaby t-shirts soon...I will keep you posted
