I know it has been a while. A very long while. In fact it has been over six months since my last post, sharing the exciting news of the birth of our new baby.
I am grateful for all that has transpired in these past few months, the laughter, the spills, the mess, the sleepless nights, the piles of laundry and the incredible beauty that a new baby adds to the family and home.
I am also grateful to share with you another ‘addition’ to our family that just opened up a mere four weeks ago.
BROOKLYN – A Project of Chabad of Mill Valley.
We have moved into a retail space to host our programs and classes while at the same time we have filled a need in the community and have combined this Chabad space with a high end Judaica Boutique store – the first of it’s kind!
Above are just a few photos that showcase how we designed the space, a large dining table for classes with plenty room to add tables and chairs. The ‘Shabbos table’ is my demo table, set to show some of our products for sale and inspire others to bring a taste of Shabbos into their own home.
The shelves that hold our products are set up according to color so that the ‘look’ is neat and clean and pleasing to look at.
We have a full coffee and tea bar with a couch nearby to relax and enjoy a Jewish book or conversation…we wanted to create a sense of warmth and community…
As we say…this is not just a store…but rather a story. A story about building community.
We have a gift wrap bar cart to make gift giving beautiful with our unique packaging…and yes…this was one of my favorite parts of designing BROOKLYN!
And the name…. BROOKLYN…..you may wonder why, but the answer is quite simple.
BROOKLYN is a city everyone knows. And everyone either loves someone or something in BROOKLYN. Either an old sweet Bubby, a friendly Zeidy, a slice of Babka or a NY style Deli Sandwich….
The list is endless and so too at BROOKLYN.
Chabad – the place you can find it all.
So, welcome to a new page in our chapter…
Where creativity takes on a whole new look.
I can’t wait to share it all with you!
