We must do better.

We must do better.

Last night while watching the news about the protests in Minneapolis, all I could think is we never learn, this keeps happening over and over again. I do know I must educate myself and do better every day and never forget how privileged I am by nothing I did but simply because of birth.  If you looking for ways to get involved, here are a few I have come across and if you know of any others, please email me and I will be happy to add the info.

Open again....

First, I want to say I hope you all are healthy and thank you for all the emails and messages fo support; you guys are truly the best!

Happy New Year!

I can't believe the holidays are over and it's a brand new year! Thank you so much to everyone who shopped with us this year, online, at our retailers, or at one of our local events.

Thank you again and I wish the best for you in 2020! Happy New Year! xo, Melissa

Made in Queens Gift Ideas

The holidays are almost here (how is that possible!?!) and I thought it would be fun to put together a gift guide celebrating my fellow small business owners based in Queens! 1. Is there anything more New York than bodega cats? I don't think there is and I love, love, love this print from About A Cloud.  2. This classic NY coffee cup ornament from The Salvaged Sawhorse is the perfect gift for any New Yorker missing their hometown! 3. For the candle lover on your shopping list, Astrid Paper and Home makes absolutely beautiful candles and my favorite is Basic Witch because I am as...
