Circa went to Brooklyn (a while ago)

Not so long ago that it's not worth mentioning, Circa went a-wandering.
Not far in distance but, borough-wise, a bridge-leap to Park Slope Brooklyn.

It was a lot of packing - swaddling santos in suzanis, securing ikats amongst the pickle pots, stacking Tibetan tea cups so they weren't jostled by a rogue spice box - but it was good to set out Circa amidst a new space and it was learning. It's been a whole year of massive lessons and as I struggle along, trying to cram a lifetime or graduate school's worth of retail smarts into an affordable time span, it was valuable in lots of back-breaking ways.

And it was fun to be off-site, nice to have wine with friends amidst it all, and good to play dress-up in all the cool clothes being sold by Circa-host (Courtney friend) AshaVeza/Shanti Crawford.

C - casting back (I'm going to break free of the old news soon, just as soon as I can mash in a few highlights, contextual explanations. I worry about gaps that, re-reading fromacafe years from now, to prod my sorry memory, the pieces won't be there. And so I'll be forced to rock, and worry, about the lost summer of '07.)

Personally, I like the Barley twist gate leg table. I think this look is timeless! We come across them ourselves from time to time and they always seem to fly out the door right away!
