I DO have a card.

Introducing our exquisite line of letterpress business and calling cards. I especially love the fun square Calvin Furano and the Rebecca Ross there with the charming inkless imprints. In this sort of economic environment, who doesn't need a fresh and enticing way to say to people "hey! remember me!" And it's always nice to have something better than a scribbled note of contact info to exchange with new friends or other moms.

$175 for 150 1-color cards, $325 for 150 2-color. And now get 25 more cards free.

Stop in the shop or call to order: 718-783-1383

Index Card Notes

These flats remind me of studying for Earth Science tests in eighth grade. Our teacher, Mrs. Jansen, had a passion for weather systems and for mid-shin polyester skirts with diamonds on them. We were an all-girls school and would sit around in the hallways between classes eating candy and finishing Spanish homework. Every time Mrs. Jansen scurried by (she was definitely a scurrier), Arleen Katz (names have been changed to protect the guilty) would hold out a yellow highlighter and draw fluorescent lines across Mrs. Jansen's polyester hems. We were horrified but couldn't hold in the giggles. Without boys around, eighth grade girls find fun where they can.

Index Card Flats, $13 for a set of six and memories you didn't know you still had.

Birthday Calendar

My roommate freshman year in college, Erin, turned out to be one of the most fun and best friends I've had. Nine years after college she lives in Alabama with her three adorable little kids and I'm in New York worrying about the dietary needs of my cat. Even though we don't talk on the phone that much anymore, we still call on each others' birthdays. Hers is tomorrow. Happy birthday, Shell!

Birthday calendar, $10.

Love Saves the Day

I like art and design that's playful and unexpected. This poster from Good Shape Design (located here in Park Slope) is exactly both of those things and hangs behind my counter. It makes me happy every time I come through the door.
