24 hours before Cursive at GCT!!!

I went up to assist Michael in scraping the paint off the glass and then windexing the entire front of the store. It is sooooo exciting to see and feel the store come together.


Sneak peek of things to come...

By reading this...

This t-shirt made my day when the air-conditioning was shut off in favor of having the front doors open. Trying to shop, in a beautiful environment that is 88 degrees indoors is quite difficult...

I met Melissa a few years back when she came in wearing a beautiful Jeanine Payer necklace on a leather cord.


The Farmer's Market is in full swing when the weather is gorgeous outside and you spot customers walking around with a loaf of bread and green leafy plants sticking out of small plastic bags.


I love the look of chunky charm jewelry like this one from a designer on the West Coast (name to be emailed by wearer). These charms are reversible.


I noticed Becca's bag which she made using upholstery fabric. I'm a sucker for all types of bags and loved seeing the different colors and textures with the red/white shoulder straps. It was so big and roomy.

Becca loves to write in journals and has bought most of them from Cursive. She uses different styles, tries to keep them small so she can carry them and also finish them. She bought the pink crackle journal with tie, a letterpress paper journal, and a flip-up note pad with trees.

Becca's button bracelets tied in well with her bag.

the new store...

I finally had time to visit the new store location at Grand Central Terminal last night after work. I met up with the guys, Michael and Doug who were dropping off all the lighting, and they walked me through the space explaining where everything will go. All of the cabinetry will be built-in and will look seamless along the walls. Check out Michael's blog, it is written in cursive, to see the updates on the store.

This tiny space will become the office!


Hi Michael and Doug!
Someone forgot to send me the memo to wear grey Supermaggie t-shirts.




Can you envision what we will look like? Only 11 more crazy busy days...

Dear Jack...

Dear Jack, your mother arrived safely yesterday at Cursive at abc and will be home soon!

Kelly, one of Cursive's customers, asked me to take a photo of her in abc and post it on our blog to let her 5 1/2 son know that she had arrived here safely.

I have always been a fan of these colorful journals and now we have them in Cursive!


Lilacs are in bloom and are gorgeous as ever.
