Today is truly red-letter day for New York City retail scene micro-celebrities. Not only did Ginny Branch reappear, but Jeff Goldstein, owner of the Bowery-via-the-Hamptons boutique Blue & Cream, also popped up after a month-long silence. From the store's blog: "For all those who regularly visit the site and have been disappointed to find virtaully no updates for this entire summer- WE APOLOGIZE. I've been too busy Hustling every day in East Hampton trying to keep the dream alive...but now that our busy season is over- come back soon and look for pics and gallery updates from this past summer's events...Summer 2008 was on another level- celeb visits, Russell Simmons Lamping, and lots of new Family+Friends."
