I KEEP TELLING YOU…

Mah Jongg really is everywhere! My dear friend Jeri has been scouting NYC for me and sending photos of evidence that Mah Jongg has infiltrated every aspect of daily life! As she passed a lingerie store on Lexington Avenue and 64th Street, she came across this bag in their window…I did a little research myself and found out that the store is called Lingerie on Lex at 831 Lexington Avenue (between 63rd and 64th Street) in NYC. I called and spoke with the absolute loveliest lady, Melissa, and she told me all about this darling zippered pouch. It is mesh with raised “leatherette” letters and sells for $25. It is 7″ x 9″. Melissa and her sister grew up listening to their mother play Mah Jongg and became Mah Jongg players and collectors themselves. When Melissa saw this pouch she thought it would be great to hold MJ card, coins, etc. Melissa is such a doll and, if you live in NYC, I hope you will patronize her store. And there is a sale going on right now!

Melissa has two of these bags in stock if you are interested and she told me that she can reorder it if she sells out. If you are out of town or can’t get over there to buy this adorable bag, you can call her at (212) 755-3312.

Much thanks to Jeri and Melissa!

If you see any evidence of Mah Jongg in your neighborhoods, take a photo and send it to me and I will post it!

MAH JONGG IS EVERYWHERE!

The other day I received five different emails from friends, all telling me about the lamp in the window of Oriental Lamp and Shade on Lexington Avenue in NYC. My friend Andrea actually took a photo of the lamp and sent it to me in her email…Mah Jongg really is everywhere!IMG_0545I just received an email from my dear friend, S1 – she actually went over to the shop and spoke to the owner and he is willing to carry Mah Jongg: The Art of the Game (well, at least one copy!) in the store…let’s see if I can convince him to put it in the window! Many thanks and lots of hugs to S1!!!
