I Can See Clearly Now...

This has been quite a week for improvements at Greenjeans. First we had new display cases installed on Saturday. Then this morning we had the old tinted glass front window replaced with clear glass and what a huge difference it makes! We'd never liked the sketchy vibe of that tinted window, and it made it difficult for passers-by to see into the shop during the day. But NOW, holy moly, our window display practically walks out onto the sidewalk and shakes pedestrians' hands!

It's kind of hard to take a picture of a clear glass window, but as you can see I tried anyway... I also really like our summer window display. Makes me feel like I'm out on a shady deck somewhere. You know, the kind of deck that's decorated with felted wool pots and jewelry and stuffed bears... (Hmmm, sounds like somebody needs a vacation...!)

Also today, we received a package from the magazine Old House Interiors who have featured Mary Anne Davis' pottery on p. 24 of the July issue! (I thought they'd go for the Shaker chairs when I sent them the press release, but I guess old houses need color sometimes too.) It reads:

"Shades of Brooklyn: Add a burst of zest to the summer table with porcelain tableware in 12 candy colors, handmade by designer Mary Anne Davis. Prices for the dishwasher-safe pieces are $32 to $90 each. A four-piece place setting is $176. From Greenjeans, (718) 907-5835,"


Also, for the record we'll be closed Sunday-Tuesday. Sunday we're going up around Hudson, NY, to pick cherries and taste some local wines. Mmmm!
