Lately the most requested item in the shop has been MUSTACHES!!! Check out my former colleague and friend (and super cute girl!!!) Kate wearing one above– they are soo fun and make every event into a party! People buy them for kids parties, adults buy them on the way to brunch to liven up the conversation, people bring them to family outings to lighten up the mood, etc. I particularly think it’s funny when 6 year old girls buy them (VERY popular amongst this age & gender!! who knew?!). So, WE HEARD YOU PEOPLE– we have LOTS of mustaches now– check out these Stylish versions (also available on website)– 7 separate ones for every day of the week– $6.75.
Pencil thin variety- $4.95.
And the infamous Party Mustache- $2.95.
We even got in a funny mug with lots of mustaches on it (great Father’s Day Gift!)- $12.95.
Also- here is a fun idea from a Designer friend/customer/vendor- Jill Kotulka/ Punkahontas– involving mustaches . For her wedding their invitation said “Dinner, Dancing and Mischief” and after their pretty formal wedding they told everyone to look under their chairs and there were boxes of Mustaches, Tiaras, Feather Boas, etc. No one knew- not even their parents! Here are some pics- looks like it was a hit, and a fun way to end an otherwise very formal affair. That Jill, she’s soo clever

I must give Jill credit for even having mustaches in the shop right now because she was the final straw in people asking me for them (we had them for Halloween, but did not realize they were a year round thing!). She pointed out that mustaches are always more fun when lots of people have them…. and her friend needed them for a high school reunion. Apparently MUSTACHES ARE ALWAYS IN SEASON!!!
p.s. we also got a little shout-out about these on Daily Candy New York last week-very exciting!
