Adventures in Curtsyland!

Monday, January 14, 2008


Oh how I missed Curtsyland....wonderful to be back! Was not expecting to come back only to have it start snowing though! Curtsy Mama is off to Florida on vacay for some much deserved R+R. Huge thanks to the fabulous Curtsy Boy Josh + Curtsy Girl SarahRose for watching over Curtsyland while we were gone....and for guest both are fabulous!! Atlanta was fun.....very exhausting. We stayed in a part of town called Buckhead which is a bit away from the gift mart. Most days we took the Marta to and from which is similar to NY's subways....sans the rats, filth, and confusing system....very enjoyable! The most frustrating aspect of the Atlanta Mart is navigating it. It is made up of three large buildings connected by bridges on random floors. No matter how much we try to plan out our attack prior to beginning, it always feels like we are just riding the escalators all day. Say we find ourselves in a showroom on the 3rd floor in building one, and need to go to a showroom in the building three on the 14th floor. So we have to make our way up to floors 7, 10, 11 or 12 to cross from building one to two, then only on floors 3, 4 or 12 can we cross from building 2 to 3. Up and down, up and down, up and down.....

Anyways.....we did manage to find some exciting new things in between all our escalator fun. One of my favorites which should be arriving soon are the new styles from Jessica Kagan Cushman. She is the fabulous jewelry designer responsible for the witty, fun scrimshaw reproduction bangles we have. Her new styles are bright and colorful just in time for spring wishes. She is also now doing many of the favorites in clear resin which look amazing. FYI....we are always happy to call in special orders on these as the favorites sayings always sell fast....and we also have customers who collect all those with Wizard of Oz sayings.
