I am happy and excited to be taking Plum to Brooklyn. Brooke and I will be traveling to AF, a market in Industry City on June 2 & 3. I am anticipating an eye-opening and fun two days to meet new friends, talk about Modernplum and our quest to make a positive difference in your home life, one linen napkin at a time. I savior these chances to chat and to get to know you, who you are, and what is important in daily life. I am looking forward to displaying our new linen pillows and napkins to everyone, not just because they are made by artisans in Chicago from really beautiful linen fabric, but because they open up a conversation about how these humble objects can make a big impact on the quality of daily rituals like cooking, eating, and relaxing. If you are in the Brooklyn area, come out to AF on 36th Street in Industry City on June 2nd and 3rd where we will be one of around 50 brands from all over the country. I'll have details in our newsletter and facebook page.
I am also very happy to be back in New York. This was my first home out of college and so it is like a homecoming. New York is part of me and I am grateful for the influence it had. I am most excited to show my girl, my fifteen year old, what New York is all about. Never would I have imagined as a 24-year-old that I would get the chance to impart my love of the City on my daughter. But here we are. Time has created this opportunity for the next generation to love this place. I think time is something we sometimes take for granted. Maybe because the minutes and days seem to trickle along without us really knowing their collective impact. Until times like this when all of a sudden we realize that what we do on a daily basis is what shapes and defines our future. This trip is really pointing that out.
Brooke and I hope to see you at the market!
