The girls are stopping traffic


When you’re on East Station Street going west, sitting in a line of traffic at the stop sign waiting to turn on Route 59, you might have just enough time to look in the window of the shop.  Earlier this afternoon I noticed a gentleman doing just that.  I was on hold on a phone call and happened to glance outside and see a man waiting in traffic and simply staring at the window.  I tried to wave at him, but he was catatonic.  I can completely understand why, because the window display is all doll-ed up for Valentine’s Day.  The mannequins have shed their Christmas attire for red and pink skirts with tops made of cards designed by Aaron Potts NYC.  The cards are of a woman dressed only in a pink ribbon tied around her shoulders and hips and titled “The Gift of Love.” They cards are made of linen paper with felt envelopes and priced at $5.95 each.

The Gift of Love

When I finally got this guy’s attention he waved and smiled and put up one finger signaling he’d be back.  I can’t wait!

  1. Thanks, Mary. The glue stick does work for me, but the wrapping paper I’ve been using is a liltte thicker than your average wrapping paper. Some glue sticks are wetter (not sure if that’s the correct terminology, lol) than others, so it might be worth it to experiment with a few brands or use a more substantial paper. The only other thing I can think of would be to use double-sided tape, but I’m not sure how that would look since I’ve never tried it. Good luck! -April
