Happy Summer...it is official. The solstice came and went...ushering in unfamiliar, Seattle magic...the sun.
This will be a smattering blog, Summer anecdotes, signature glassybaby.
First, we welcome Diana, above far right. She is the new and fabulous Manager of 555 Hudson, our New York Store. I will never tire of writing the words: "Our New York Store." The other three super models in the photo are, Marissa, far left, Allie, second from left and Christine, center. Marissa and Christine, from our top flight, Seattle glassybaby team, flew to New York City last week. They greeted Diana and helped to launch and host a swanky glassybaby evening party. Here is a view of the invitation and the party space to enjoy:
Wine and hors d'oeuvres were served. The courtyard in the back was an inviting extension to the party. The event twinkled with glassybaby everywhere, and it was our delight to welcome many and sundry New York luminaries. Not to mention any names, but the loveliness of Staphanie March (Law and Order) may have been in our midst. It was a gorgeous affair. Many kudos and thanks to Gina Hadley, our evening MVP...this was her event and a great success.
Back to Seattle and endnote. Thank you to the hundreds of glassybaby, seconds pilgrims, who braved the drizzling, punishing, even winter-cold, rain, last Saturday, waiting for our 10 O'Clock doors to open. The Sale was a romp as usual, and an utter success. Word on the street...the first ladies in line, set up their encampment at 5:15am. We dispensed, calorie free, Krispy Kreme donuts. Lee's son, Cedie, and his posse, set up a coffee stand, raising a small purse to donate to the homeless. There was a bride, who's in line strategy, and the help from a friend, landed her 42 glassybaby seconds, that will light her forthcoming wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Everyone has a story and we love them all. Thanks for being there.
More Soon, Happy Summer, Nicola
