On Day 44 I channeled my love of bright colors, stationary and designer cards (look at me be girly!) while attending the grand opening of the Dabney Lee store. (http://www.dabneylee.com/).
Jumping at the chance to support a friend (who happens to be married to Dabney), I was psyched to check out the cute products, partake in a little wine and cheese and see a part of the borough of Brooklyn I seldom visit.
Finding the store was easy – Dabney Lee is located on a popular street in Dumbo, right in the midst of retail therapy, the Brooklyn Brewery store and delicious brunch spots. The crisp blue awning and zebra wallpaper are enticing and the products are a feast for the eyes.
I walked in, waved at said friend, and immediately wanted to touch and look at everything.
Pretty sure a whole 20 minutes went by before I even approached the wine/beer/cheese (hard to believe I know).
Some of my favorite products:
- Personalized monogramed trays (breakfast in bed… yes please!)
- Cards that say “Everyone Wants To Be Us” (Already planning on purchasing these must-haves for friends)
- Coasters with Obama AND Romney (Everyone’s happy!)
Witnessing this home-grown success was motivating. Seeing the family-inspired personalizations on the products was uplifting. Participating in the soiree that’s launching the store? … Pretty Awesome.
