Such Delicious Finds!!

We got back from New York last night, about 8 hours ahead of our luggage! Kudos to Danielle for waiting up for it, I was just too tired to care. We had a fabulous time at the New York Gift Show and wrote oodles of orders for so many new lusts. It was Danielle's B-day on Saturday, the day we left and the Captain had told her that one of her presents ended up getting shipped late and was going to be delivered to her in New York. Imagine her surprise when the "gift" turned out to be the Captain himself! He had been planning this little surprise for months (I was his willing accomplice) and after spending all day Saturday and Sunday training with his Army Reserve Unit, he hopped on the red-eye and flew all night to arrive in New York on Monday morning. It was so much fun having him shop with us and getting a guy's opinion on things.

One of the categories of things that we were on the lookout for were items that can be monogrammed. We have purchased a commercial embroidery machine and will soon be able to personalize many of the items in the store. We found lots of new goods that were a great price and will make perfect gifts to have customized by the Curtsy Girls & Boys. The machine is scheduled to arrive on Monday, so Danielle has been re-organizing the back room to find a corner to put it in. We're pretty excited about this new addition to Curtsyland.

We also have to take a moment to give kudos to our newest Curtsy Girl, Jordan. She looked after the store while we were gone and did an absolutely amazing job!!

I'm happy to report that while we were gone, our newest shipment of the the Victorian Lace Bustier Sets arrived. We have the original teal set that has sold out almost as soon as we put them out and the same set in a midnight blue.

This Saturday, August 22nd, Curtsy Bella will donate 10% of our total sales to Friends of FSH Research Please join us and help us support the important work this organization is doing.
