A recent trip to Cold Spring for an interview gave WAG the chance to pay a quick visit to Pink Olive, a paper goods and gift boutique that held a grand-opening celebration March 4.
The boutique marks the company’s first venture outside of New York City and it joins sister shops in the East Village, West Village, Park Slope and Williamsburg.
The airy space at 80 Main St. is going to be trouble – and we mean that in a good way. Undoubtedly, you will be tempted by the array of clever cards and paper goods, whimsical gift ideas, home-décor selections and more.
It all reflects the vision of Pink Olive founder and chief buyer Grace Kang, a former buyer for Bloomingdale’s, Barneys New York and Saks Fifth Avenue. Kang and her team source a signature – and eclectic – mix of stationery, baby gifts, art, jewelry, books and vintage finds, all offered in a charming setting.
The Pink Olive mission is “to inspire and celebrate the little things – one person, one gift and one neighborhood at a time.”
Pink Olive, which marks its 10th anniversary this year, will be celebrating throughout the year. Special events will continue as part of its #littlegirls4bigchange campaign, where a percentage of all sales will be donated to organizations that support and empower women worldwide.
WAG wishes this new Hudson Valley venture well, and we look forward to our next shopping trip… um, interview… in Cold Spring.
