Edward Martin (co-owner with Huy Nguyen) was there and graciously let me poke around in the new annex that was not yet open to the public. (This annex will be open at the time of publication of this post) Everything in the whole place is beautifully displayed.
|Beautiful linens (and don't you love the tags?)|
