party and sale this weekend

Dear friends,
This past year has been filled with wonderful discoveries, adventures, hard work, dedication and love. It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that our space on Franklin St. will close at the end of March. I want to thank each and every one of you for all your support, love and commitment to buying local.

jan & äya will continue to represent local and national artists and designers online. We will feature a monthly local artist on our site and report on local design here in greenpoint. In addition, we will continue to hold events and special "pop" up stores in the near future.

Please come and celebrate with us at the store on Sunday, March 15th from 4 to 7pm! Everything will be between 30- 50% off. Join us for cupcakes, wine and celebrating new beginnings!

Much love,
Carolyn & Kai

NOTE: If you have a store credit or gift certificate, please email or call me 917-609-1691 to make arrangements.

DESIGNERS | ARTISTS: I will be writing to you this week with more details about picking up your work, payments, etc..

almost a year

Looking back at almost a year at jan & äya...

Philip Ficks

Philip and I worked together at Real Simple magazine a few years back. When he offered to do some photos of the shop and it's products I could not refuse. The once art director turned photographer has exactly the beautiful combination of elegance and sublime lighting. Here are a few sneak peaks at what we are working together on.
