Urban Fur: Le Grenier

Filed under: 11222, Crazy Cat Lady, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

This summer I learned the proprietress of Le Grenier, Maya, got an unexpected visitor in the way of the orange and white tabby you see at left. She wrote:

Hi — wondering if any of you North Brooklyners have seen signs for a missing orange cat?

One has just appeared in my garden and she’s definitely a lost family pet — very friendly, cuddly and charming, clean and seems to have been well fed / cared for.

I’m giving her food, water & friendly ministrations but am not sure how long she’ll stay back there (no clue how she even got in, it’s completely enclosed) and I can’t bring her inside (our Galileo is FeLV+) so I’m hoping to track down her owners quickly.

I helped to spread the word but, alas, no one came forward. No worries: yesterday, as I discovered, she has a new home— and a job! I wrote to Maya:

I got some lovely photos of her today. She pranced along the window mewing at me the whole time (didn’t capture that but I thought you’d like to know she is keeping a very watchful eye over your business!). Very cute. Plan on posting a few pix tomorrow!

To wit Maya replied:

After posting signs everywhere and calling local vets for many weeks, with no reply I of course decided to keep her (my friends have officially dubbed me The Crazy Cat Lady)…  Her name is AmiCat…

AmiCat watches.

And watches.

And when AmiCat deduced that yours truly was neither a threat nor a food giver she proceeded to ignore me. Such is the life of a pampered pussy— and quite frankly I am envious.

But when Maya is in the house, well, it’s another story altogether. READ: naptime!

This items comes from via the New York Shitty inbox via one of the inimitable (and fabulous) boys of Alter. Roy writes:

Hey Miss Heather,

Hope you are well. I wanted to a share with you that this Friday, Sept 10th is Fashion’s Night Out. A global outreach to get people excited about shopping produced by Vogue, NYC and the CFDA. Most of the shops on Franklin St are participating and we all have collaborated on promoting the night. I have attached the flyer for it and would love to see if you are interested in featuring it on your site. Each store will have different events going on. Some will have DJ’s, free giveaways, complimentary drinks, discounts etc. (Alter will also be selling the official FNO tee shirt as well as having a photo studio in the shop to shoot all customers who attend and of course champagne) Its going to be fun night on Franklin St. There will be an after party at Veronica People’s Bar as well!

This is the second year for this event and last year was great for all the shops that participated. Only 4 last year, this year 10!

Duly blogged! Show your local indie businesses a little love this upcoming Friday and check this out!

If you know who this handsome lady belongs to— or are interested in giving her a forever home— please shoot Maya an email at maya (at) legrenier (dot) com.

Thanks!

After much ado Le Grenier is at last poised to open. Once Maya Marzolf, the proprietress, told me the good news I simply had to head down there and get a sneak peek. Not only does this store sport some lovely merchandise (the lot of old Victorian photographs she recently acquired is especially nice!), but she has done a wonderful job restoring the space. Here is a slide show of what you can expect to see opening day— which for those of you who are interested will be May 1st. Enjoy!
