fall is here

It may seem that all has been quiet here at jan & äya. Lots of new things are arriving for fall including the amazing Tay Teas by tea connoisseur Nini Ordoubali and wood earring by montreal designer Orno (see photos above).

I've also been working away planning an exciting october and november! To give you a sneak peak, here are some the events to come:
First of all for all of you who have been asking and craving, our "sweet weekends" with Sarah Magid's confections will return this coming weekend!
2. open call days: starting saturday oct.4th we will hold our first open call from 1-3pm. Interested artists and designers should contact us by email or phone to make an appointment. Open calls will be held every first tuesdays (6-8pm) and saturday (6-8pm) of the month. Currently we are looking for work that would coinside with our "alpine" fall theme, but are open to see all works for future shows. Our wonderful new intern, Sarah, will contact you to schedule an appointment.
danna ray: The beautiful work of south carolina artist, Danna Ray will be on exihibit from October 17th to Nov. 30th. Her delicate and modern forest mountain scenes will grace the walls of our store. Come join us on Friday Oct. 17th from 6-8pm for an opening reception to kick off our fall season.
4. greenpoint design conference: Ok, I'm super excited about this one. Please save the date on your calender for our very first "greenpoint design conference" on Saturday, October 25th. Five super talented local designers will share their work and their thoughts for what I believe will be a truly inspiring evening. $15 a person, wine and cheese on us!
More to come!
