NYC from a different perspective

Most who dream of a visit to The Big Apple, think of big city lights, sky scrapes, bumper to bumper yellow cabs, sight seeing, and of course, the occasional celebrity sighting. I, on the other hand, think of the bead district, The Brooklyn Flea, and trips on the subway to unchartered territory for future business relations. My expectations were exceeded with my recent trip to New York. Here are a few pictures from my first day, in The Bead District. I am anxious to return real soon.

An escape to The Big Apple Sept 26-28

It's been more than a decade since I have visited New York City. I've been waiting for  the stars to align, and the time has come! This will be a long awaited three day trip with a talented girlfriend to seek inspiration and stimulate our creative juices. I can't think of a better place. On our list of places to visit, Soho and Brooklyn Flea...maybe even Chinatown. Three days won't be enough!

Coming soon to Madison and Mabel

I have crossed paths with Kelly Tyree, the owner of Madison and Mabel, more than once. And, I am awestruck with her ability to transform an old treasure into a new piece. Her style is industrial, rustic and chic. She has some serious skill when it comes to fashion, too!  I am excited to announce that select GDO designs will soon be available at Madison and Mabel. You can find them inside Chartreuse and Company at 4007 Buckeystown Pike, Frederick, MD. Hours are limited to specific dates and times each month, so be sure to check them out online for more details.
