My, how things have changed
 When I first started Galleria J Antonio the east village still had pink haired punks .
Memory was something you lost with age
An application was for employment
A program was a T.V. Show  ( I love Smash)
A virus was the flu
a CD was a bank instrument at E.A.B. 50 Ave A
A cursor used profanity   and----
A hard drive was a long trip on the road.

I recently met Robbie Robinson ( google her ) , she and I talked about Pat Cleveland , Beverly Johnson , & Susan Taylor (Essence Magazine) -we both had spicy stories about  them & Studio 54 and and how it was on the fashion cat walk in the 70's  and 80's .

It inspired me to go back to Madison Ave ,where I learned my craft at
GINDI  816 Madison Ave @68th street.
Peggy Mellon , Mrs Charles Revson (Lynn) and Mrs Kissinger ( Nancy) graced the Avenue on occasion and bought from the merchants direct , not on line or through their housekeepers.
The Ave has changed but the beautiful windows still bring a special charm to your eyes.
MALO still has my old store Incorporated into itself and it just felt good to know my scratch on the sidewalk is still there.  Ha -ha .

The one thing that does not change is that women still want to look beautiful and buy things to adorn themselves and their homes that say

: I am an individual, not a corporate  BILLBOARD.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I recently started making silver jewelry that used hot glass ,rather than stones.  WoW!!!!!
 The colors are vivid and new .  The medium alive with possibilities.  Come by and see the new lamp made from 1920"s  billiard balls and stainless steel.

Jesus is in the middle of creating a new line of ceramic sculptures and housewares .  You got to see the clock he gave birth to .
Remember that things might change but my love for all of yous that have been loyal to buying small AMERICAN products will never ever change.
