Once upon a time, right down the street from here, we started a shop in a little space and waited and wondered what form everything was going to take. One winter evening, we met a fabulously talented couple who we knew, right away, was working their way through those same exact questions. She a jewelry designer/metalsmith, he a graphic designer. We talked a lot during those first conversations about the BEGINNINGS of things, how it happens, when to start… One day, when the time was right for them, we were lucky enough to have them move in just a few doors down from us so that they could open their own studio space. Lucky enough to have someone to visit when we desperately needed a break during our oh-so-late nights, she sawing through sheets of metal, us pasting paper together. Lucky enough to pad around in slippers and sweat pants on cold winter mornings when the very best thing was to eat scrambled eggs with friends who knew EXACTLY how it felt to try something new.
Like us, that lovely couple has moved on, and the business that they began two years ago has evolved and taken new shape–one that suits them perfectly.
Tomorrow, Saturday, October 23rd, Ephemera is lucky enough to share with you the incredibly beautiful shape that that dream has taken. Stop by from 10:00 – 5:30 to ogle the tiny masterpieces created by our friend Ms. Carrie Hoffnagle (and, if you feel so inclined, take a tiny piece of lovely home with you!).
