What a day for Namely Newborns and friends. Our beautiful south Florida weather cooperated with sunny skies for our March 1 Grand Opening. We meet many new friends and new customers referred by Just Ask Boo. In the background you can see the monoprints created by our guest artist Jerry Goldberg. His works are one of a kind creations that are colorful and skillfully printed on special paper. His works are available at monoprintsbyjerry.con
At noon Susie Taylor and the Bibbitec.com gang demonstrated her high tech indescrutible bib which is large enough to cover a baby while mother nurses. These fab eco friendly bibs last a baby for years as kids venture into the kitchen or become involved with art projects ; these bibs make great aprons . They are available for $48.00 in cool shades of plum, charcoal and rasberry with contrasting edging. Bibbitec makes the bibs, but Namelynewborn can add a name for that special personalized touch.
Author Judy Weber , a renowned children’s book writer, added a literary touch to the day’s events by signing her newest book Seeking Safety, a story of a 10 year old’s journey to America in 1944.
I read this book to both my seven year old grandaughter and my ten year old grandson . Both were enthralled with the drama of a young girl escaping in a cigar truck from her native home in Yugoslavia to Italy where she and her mother stood in long lines to get visas to come to America . My grandson couldn’t believe that her first taste of icecream was in the lunch room of the navy transport ship that she travelled on. My grandaughter couldn’t imagine how anyone could travel for a month with only two outfits and one pair of shoes.
Our customers enjoyed homemade cookies baked by Carole , the artists wife; the babies drooled over organic animal crackers and everyone had lots of fun stocking up on bargains in blankets , towels and baby layette. We were so happy to show off our new space. I was really happy to finally have a workshop large enough to store all of the unique baby gift that formerly occupied every closet in my home. My husband was thrilled that when he now opens a closet, plush toys like stuffed elephants and teddy bears don’t come tumbling down on his head.
