an old idea of business... is it so, i wonder?....

It seems like memories overwhelm me these days.. :) So I am forced to tell you a few words about this concept i developed with my friends Oana (get a blog, fGs!!) and Alexa:
'In rush for presents' we translated in English... it sounds so stupid now, but even so it was meant to emphasize the idea that if you don't have time for presents, let somebody else do it for you :) I have to admit that my ex-colleagues had a very important infusion on the decision to roll this. Well, let's say that this is one of a few positive things that you might find in such a working place: people - some of them meant a lot to me and i have to thank for being there in difficult times. I might write sometimes about what it meant to me that period, in fact it was a long and complex(ed) one... Anyway, back to the subject. So, as the colleagues were so happy with our taste in choosing presents (yes, we celebrated a lot of birthdays there - about one per week!! too many people on the same roof i'd say :), we decided to take a next step in making it public. Have to say that it was received very well by the media, who presented it as a new and original business - thus we had the chance to appear in Timeout and on Euforia tv (don't know why we haven't the recorded show...)

this was the ad published in b24fun:

and here is the brochure :)

this is the picture we wanted so badly to be published near the article... well, guess we weren't that wanted :D

personalized shoes made for Girl back in 2005... really nice memories come together with viewing this picture.. it was the starting point of our dear handmade Shoes project, when the enthusiasm kept us awake until 2-3 a.m. on a daily stressful corporate life. this moment in time also coincides with our Triangle coterie :)
