A Festive Book Signing Evening

Last night was such a fun evening. Anna Post, the great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post was at the shop signing the 18th edition of Emily Post’s Etiquette.

She is a warm, personable spirit, who charmed all in attendance with her keen insight into matters of etiquette, put forth in very approachable manner. Followed was a brief Q & A, then each person attending received the book which Anna then graciously personalized. It all could not have been nicer.

Anna signed the stack of books we have at the shop too, so please let me know if you are interested in one. It really is a perfect go-to source for all questions revolving around manners and etiquette.

Just a reminder, tomorrow is our all day Eleven event at the Home store, followed by our kick-off to the Holiday season at both shops, on Saturday, with our Open House. I hope to see you there. Happy Thursday!



Emily Post’s Etiquette

20111107-053006.jpg Manners for a New World, is the tag line of the 18th edition of “Emily Post’s Etiquette” which has just been released. I created a window around our stack of copies. In our rushed world, manners are now even more crucial, as they make us slow down a bit, and make us think of others.

Tickets for the event are still available thru It will be a fun, festive evening of bubbly, nibbles, and a signed copy of the book, along with a brief presentation by Anna Post.

If you can’t join us for the event, signed copies will still be available, so we would be happy to ship or hold one for you.

I received many requests from the post yesterday about what the menu was for the evening. Look for it in an upcoming post this week. It was a yummy, simple meal that I look forward to sharing with you.
