I want....

these beautiful ceramic containers with hand turned walnut closures. These were spied at the New York Show and might possibly be coming in for fall.
Speaking of fall, I know it's a little premature but we are very excited about all of the new merchandise that will start pouring in any day now. Lots of beautiful reds, browns, greens and a little orange to spice up the mix.

Black + White and.....

I am back!
I needed some time off from something and the blog took one for the team.
Anyway, I am getting back into the swing of things and will be posting often.
In the picture above are some amazing new designs from a company we work with a lot. We got really excited about building fall around these ( and a few other styles ) and I think the shop will be wonderful come fall.

Shop ‘N’ Run | Cursive New York

DESCRIPTIONM.K. WongCursive New York in Grand Central Terminal.

In theory, I love buying hostess gifts. It’s fun to think of the perfect thing to give someone who has invited you for lunch or a weekend in the country. But exactly where to go and when to get there are questions that invariably bring out the procrastinator in me. Therefore, even when no one has invited me anywhere, I breathe a sigh of relief whenever I pass by Cursive New York, a small but perfectly formed shop in Grand Central Terminal.

DESCRIPTIONCourtesy of Cursive New YorkA decoupage paperweight by John Derian.

The shop, which opened last summer, is an offshoot of the five-year-old independent boutique of the same name at ABC Home. Its 424 square feet are stocked with a stylish, witty array of decorative accessories, jewelry, paper products and other things to snap up as you’re dashing for the train. Cursive has a nice selection of John Derian decoupage plates and paperweights (approximately $60 to $175), for example, and chic enclosure cards ($22) that are a different color on each side. I could not resist the red/hot-pink combo, and the first time I enclosed one with a gift, I heard more about the card than I did about the present. And there are sets of letterpress coasters — eight for $16 — that spell out, among other things, “cocktail” or “cheers!!”

Cursive’s transportation-adjacent location has resulted in “insane” business, says Michael Schultz, who co-owns both stores with Douglas Duncan. And the customers aren’t just guests like me. “We get a lot of commuters — husbands buying anniversary gifts for their wives on their way home,” Schultz says. He and Duncan are looking for a third location; stay tuned.

Happy Anniversary,

Happy Anniversary!!!
Today Cursive at GCT turned ONE year old, oh my baby is growing up~
I have to say thank you to everyone we have worked with, the clients who support us and all of our friends and family who stood by us as we opened our new shop in the worst economic times in a decade.
The year has flown by and I am looking forward to what the future has in store.

Your ship....

has come in! Well maybe a little wishful thinking on our part but good vibes are always a good thing.
I just spent the last 3 days shopping for new goodies at the Stationery Show, so I am a little exhausted and blurry eyed. The good news is that we will be receiving a lot of new items from existing vendors along with some very good new designers.

"It was like Island pricing...."

no that that island.
The other day as I was walking up the steps from the subway I overheard two young women talking about the Brooklyn Flee. The one says to the other " I had a great time there but it was like Island pricing".. of course she was referring to the Island of Manhattan. I chuckled to myself at the irony of these two ladies carrying their Marc Jacobs bags and doing their best Olsen twin styling, complaining that Brooklyn Flee had the audacity to approximate Manhattan retail.
Listen up folks... Manhattan real estate is out of control expensive!!! So expect to pay top dollar any place you shop. It's a fact, so get over it and enjoy the island life!
