Adele, Ruth & Gracie
Finally, some “Good News”
I am so pleased to announce that our two longest serving staff members, Adele Salzberg and Ruth Hornbein
have new jobs starting August 1st.
Over the last 27 years, I have been very fortunate to have had some really extraordinary people to work with at Granny-Made®.
Adele & Ruth were two of the best, and instrumental in our transformation from the premiere women’s sweaters store that we were known for throughout the late 1980’s and 1990’s, into one of the finest Infant and Children’s stores that we became. Both of their unique talents will continue to be featured on our website.
I thank then, from the bottom of my heart, for all they contributed, and for their friendships.
It has been my privilege to work at Granny-Made for 15 years as a buyer and salesperson. I loved selecting special items in the market with our customers in mind. It was gratifying that I was able to make Granny-Made your “go to” store for the perfect gift.
With my background in fashion design, marketing and merchandising, Granny-Made was a perfect fit for my talents. It was great to do the windows and see the children drawn to the cool toys, original sweaters and fantastic dresses that we were known for. And I was thrilled every time a new grandparent ordered one of my custom hand made quilts for the new baby.
I will cherish my memories of working with Michael, Ruth, and Gracie the best Havanese in the world for all of my life,
I thank all of our loyal customers for allowing me to have the best job ever!
And don’t forget grannymade.com!
All my best regards,
I came to Granny-Made after 20 years in the wholesale business designing and manufacturing my own line of children’s sweaters. I was very nervous to be in retail, but, lucky me, I was at Granny-Made. Everyone, the customers, my co-workers and Michael, the best boss ever, made it a wonderful experience. We will all miss Granny-Made, but it will continue on the Web site and Michael will be making “appearances” in the neighborhood.
As of August 2nd, I will continue in the retail world at a lovely little boutique in Park Slope called Lulu’s for Babies. It’s an easy ride on almost any train, 2 blocks from the new Barclay Center. Both Adele and I will still make items for the website: Adele her spectacular one-of-a-kind quilts and me, the Manhattan/Brooklyn skyline sweater.
Regards, Ruth Hornbein
