Tuesday's Truths Week Twenty: My fauna, flora, and insect themed postcards have been selling at M&M!


It's time for another Tuesday Truth! Nineteen days ago, here on Blogger, I made an announcement that Steve Mohr, the sole proprietor of More & More Antiques (an exquisite shop on the UWS in NYC), had made the decision to sell my fauna-flora-insect-themed postcards. In that announcement, I stated that "... Steve Mohr's place has been there for over twenty-five years. Mohr's vast knowedge of antiques, coupled with an excellent eye for spotting unusual and interesting collectible pieces, guarantees a fun experience to anyone who goes there.

"In addition to offering unique collectibles, More & More Antiques has wonderful items for the home, especially for the various holidays. The way in which the shop's owner, Steve Mohr, displays them is magical! I confess that his talent in positioning the whimsical figurines (which he sells during the various holiday seasons) has inspired a number of the "stories" that I've written for hometalk.

"Steve's displays, as well as the helpfulness of Nancy Nelson Mancini (who works there), have been the inspiration (whenever figurines are involved) for entries here on Blogger (as well as tumblr and Facebook) that have to do with New Year'sThree Kings DayValentine's Day, Saint Patrick's Day, EasterHalloweenThanksgivingChristmas, and any patriotic holiday."

In any event, I'm grateful that Steve has not only decided to sell my cards, he has also placed them in a "prominent" position (on the countertop where one pays for purchases) in his shop! The photograph atop this blog entry features how my postcards look in Mohr's store.

Each of my postcards features an image from both the iBook and ePub version of Cam's prolific book, Words In Our Beak Volume Onewhich is book that is set in a rooftop garden in NYC;  and the story is told from the perespctive of a female cardinal (Cam).


As for the photo atop this entry featuring a detail from More & More Antiques, it was taken last night by Nancy Nelson Mancini, a woman who works there. I also mentioned her when I first announced the fact that my cards could be available at M&M (the nickname that Nancy gives the shop).

While she took this photo so that I could share it with readers, you may not get a sense of how delightful M &M truly is! However, she has posted some very cool collages on her Facebook Page that feature overall views of the store.

And to get a sense of how each one of my postcards look, please refer to a previous post here on Blogger and/or on a page in my web-site known as patriciayoungquist.com, which was designed by Chris Deatherage.

However, it's usually better to see merchandise in person. Therefore, if you find yourself in NYC, dear reader, I encourage you to visit More & More Antiques (at 378 Amsterdam Avenue) to check out my postcards and other items in his amazing store! What a treat for me it is to have my cards represented in such a magnificent place!
