Blacksmith Coffee, Custom Collaboration

Online shopping is often a very anonymous experience even when a person clicks that box to "accept social marketing". Things change though when running a small business.

A Turkish Delight Perfect for Dinner

While flipping through the Sunday Times Magazine we spotted this healthy, flavorful and EASY dish by NY Times Sr. Editor Sam Sifton
Shawarma, typically a street food made on a vertical rotisserie becomes easily duplicated with this oven roasted version.  Add toasted pita with tahini or hummus as a condiment and load on olives, tomatoes, cucumbers and parsley.  A serving of rice pilaf is also a nice addition to this meal.

Lumiary Interview with GK&Co. Co-Founder Andrew Payne

(The following interview was conducted and originally posted on Luminary Blog)

(designed in Bedford, NY and made in New England.)  They use rare and vintage fabrics collected from around the world to offer uniquely designed and enduring products that stand the test of time.

We got to catch up with  to Andrew Payne who is the Founder and Creative Director over at General Knot & Co. and asked him a few questions about work, life and who would play him in his big screen debut:

Tell us the story of how you got started?

AP: After directing design teams in NYC for years, Ann and I had built up quite a collection of vintage clothing and fabrics, which we  both love to wear and draw inspiration. With that and the desire to branch out on our own, utilize the skills we’ve picked up along the  way, and combine our love of design and manufacturing, we took the big leap with General Knot & Co. in Fall 2010.

What was your first job?...
