Anniversary & Video from the Barn Dance!

Today is Greenjeans' 2-year Anniversary!

We are so excited to be where we are two years into our Greenjeans Adventure! Business is growing, we are learning, and we're finding great artisans and works of craft in all kinds of places.

We are so grateful to all of YOU, our customers, supporters, colleagues, friends, family, and the more than fifty artists and artisans who make the amazing works that fill our shop. We sure wouldn't be here without each and every one of you!

Last night we celebrated at the Barn Dance...

...and had the kind of fun that uplifts the spirit and makes you so glad you went. The mood communal, relaxed, and upbeat.

On this night, legendary New Hampshire fiddle players Dudley and Jacqueline Laufman played and called the dances. Dozens of people filled the hall with stompin' feet and big happy smiles. Everyone danced. We sashayed and spun and promenaded up a storm and will definitely go back again!

This is a monthly contra dancing event organized by David Harvey and held at Hungarian House in Manhattan. Go to to find out about upcoming dances.

Today, our friend Kym stopped by the shop and treated us to a deeelicious (and decidedly unconventional) birthday yogurt. Not just any yogurt, but Old Chatham Sheep's Milk Yogurt lightly sweetened with maple syrup. We popped in a candle and took the picture you see here, and then we made a wish. And then we ate it up! Kym is so cool.

Friends Shawn and Judy came by, too, to offer us a birthday dinner that Judy had prepared in the kitchen of their new apartment. A fantastic Bolognese sauce and pasta, just like what we've been craving lately! We supped on it tonight at home and relished every bite. So so yummy! Thank you so much, you thoughtful two!

It was a wonderful anniversary,
and here's to many many many more!
