Here we are, update 4/20, COVID-19, day 9 million

Hi all,

We've been closed for five weeks now. 

What have I been up to? Probably the same as every owner of every business you pass on the street who has been mandated closed: trying to figure out how to save my store.

That and making masks and sourdough, because I'm a pandemic cliche. I'm getting pretty good at both.

Thank you all for the support, the online purchases, the gift certificate purchases and the words of encouragement. Keep it up! It means the world.

I'd be lying if i said what we're facing isn't dire.

Sending big love to all. Stay safe! Stay home! Wear your masks! Shop local.. online


PS, if you're local and want sourdough starter, I'm happy to share

Strangest and most tragic Spring in my 25+ years in Brooklyn, but still beautiful

    Dear Diana,
    I am SOOO sorry to hear of your closing. I happened to look on your site and saw the news. You don’t know me, but I know of you, as some time ago, I worked in a wonderful little jewelry boutique in Haddonfield, NJ, called Starry Eyed. I used to sell your crystal jewelry to our customers. I own several pieces that I just couldn’t resist at the time. Your handmade crystal jewelry was so fabulous! Your jewelry inspired me to begin making my own jewelry. I make all different kinds of crystal jewelry and have been selling it privately for the last 10 years. Thank you for being my inspiration, and good luck to you!

    Hi Diana!

    I would like to buy a couple of masks from you.
    Do you have pictures of your masks?

    We love you, and are thinking of you while we
    experience these unbelieveable times during
    the Pandemic.

    Tell Paul, Max, and Otto hello for us.

    Love and Hugs,

    Linda and Corry
