IT'S ALWAYS BEEN IMPORTANT TO ME THAT THE FOUNDRY REMAINS HONEST AND HUMAN. I LIVE ABOVE THE SHOP, SO IT REALLY IS AN EXTENSION OF MY HOME AND BECAUSE THE SPACE IS SO PERSONAL IT FEELS CRITICAL THAT WHAT WE DO AT THE FOUNDRY STAYS GROUNDED AND COMES FROM A GOOD PLACE, ALWAYS. CLIENTS ARE MY DEAR FRIENDS. STAFF AND VENDORS ARE MY FAMILY.

DONATIONS WILL BE MADE TO
MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING RARE CANCER RESEARCH



IT'S ALWAYS BEEN IMPORTANT TO ME THAT THE FOUNDRY REMAINS HONEST AND HUMAN.  I LIVE ABOVE THE SHOP, SO IT REALLY IS AN EXTENSION OF MY HOME AND BECAUSE THE SPACE IS SO PERSONAL IT FEELS CRITICAL THAT WHAT WE DO AT THE FOUNDRY STAYS GROUNDED AND COMES FROM A GOOD PLACE, ALWAYS.  CLIENTS ARE MY DEAR FRIENDS.  STAFF AND VENDORS ARE MY FAMILY.
 
THE HOLIDAY SHOPPING SEASON IS PRETTY MAGICAL.  WE LOVE THE ENERGY AND THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON.  IT'S AROUND THIS TIME OF YEAR THAT IT FEELS MOST IMPORTANT TO FOCUS ON THE WHOLE NOT-A-RETAIL-SHOP-SHOP VIBE THAT IS THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE FOUNDRY.  BLACK FRIDAY IS CRAAAAZY.  SMALL BIZ SATURDAY IS A NICE ANTIDOTE, BUT I STILL WANTED TO FEEL MORE OF THE GIVING SPIRIT.  MY BROTHER IN LAW, JAY (A.K.A MY BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER) WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ADVANCED TESTICULAR CANCER IN 2013.  JAY IS A HUGE HEARTED HUMAN BEING.  WE ARE ALL SO FREAKING LUCKY TO HAVE HIM ON THIS PLANET.  IT WAS SO TERRIFYING WHEN HE GOT SICK.  HE IS CANCER FREE NOW AND HE AND MY SISTER HAVE A SWEET, SWEET LITTLE BABE NOW, JUNIPER.... BORN FROM SOME SERIOUS LOVE.  SO, THIS IS WHY I TAKE A RETAIL TIME-OUT AND GIVE OUR PROFITS TO CHARITY.  BECAUSE I LOVE MY PEOPLE SO MUCH AND I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING HEALED OUR JAY-BIRD.  AND BECAUSE IT FEELS HEALING AND NURTURING TO DO IT.  WE'RE NOT JUST TAKING CARE OF JAY, WE'RE TAKING CARE OF OTHER PEOPLE'S JAYS AND TAKING CARE OF OUR CLIENTS, OUR VENDORS, OUR ARTISTS, OUR FOUNDRY FAMILY.  IT'S FEELS GOOD TO KICK OFF THE HOLIDAY SEASON GIVING RATHER THAN TAKING.
 
WITH ALL THE LOVE IN OUR HEARTS,
ANNA AND RUBY
