Hello, everyone! It isn’t very often that we come across someone who has the fantastic talent to create such incredible work, yet we definitely take the time to spotlight them when they do. This was the case with our very own Nita Angeletti, who works as a fashion consultant at Off Broadway Boutique and has featured her fabulous collection of dolls in our store window. We were so excited to hear that she’d be showing her exquisite exhibit at the 37th annual American Crafts festival that we made it our business to see her in action this past Saturday.
Doubly pleasing was the arrival of my good friend, Joyce, who decided to join me in supporting Nita in her first showing. In town from Dallas, she had wanted to catch up with me, as we hadn’t seen one another in years. The result was pure happiness as we both marveled at Nita’s ability to create the most exciting and unique exhibit in Lincoln Center.
What’s more, we were both thrilled to see Dawn Wain, a beloved jewelry designer whose work we’ve shown in our store. Although she had displayed very few pieces at the festival, it was such a joy to see that Dawn was doing better – as she had been very ill. A friend of Off Broadway Boutique’s for years, we wish her health and happiness as she emerges as a stronger and more resilient woman.
After congratulating Nita on such a smashing debut, we decided to eat at the magnificent PJ Clarke’s. Dining on the biggest and fattest oysters that we’d ever tasted while catching up on old times, it was as if we’d never been apart. All those wonderful memories of jet setting around the world came back to me as I thoroughly enjoyed my old friend’s company. We’d say that this nicely capped off a sensational sunny Saturday – Off Broadway Boutique style!
