It's no secret that Anguilla is probably my favorite place to visit on this planet. When you consider the breathtaking views, the freshest seafood, the rum punches (!!!), and without exception, the kindest people – it's no wonder I'm trying to finagle my next trip there as soon as possible.
On our first visit to Anguilla in April of this year, Alex and I were excited to visit the Savannah Art Gallery after reading so many great things about it. We were't disappointed.
We met Frank Costin, the enthusiastic Canada transplant who just oozed passion for his gallery and every single piece in it. We left without buying anything and instantly regretted it upon touching down in NYC. So when we went back over the 4th of July holiday, we knew we couldn't make the same mistake twice.
We left with these two gorgeous pieces:
The next day, Frank called us and told us our favorite artist had another piece and that he'd bring it by our hotel to see if we liked it. Clearly, we loved it and it was great seeing Frank again.
Here are the paintings framed in our apartment in NYC. We literally admire them every single day - so many different times per day! They bring back such great memories!
Besides hearing about the paintings in the gallery and Frank's pets, Frank and I talked a bit about Lazyjack Press. To my surprise a few weeks ago, I was ecstatic to receive my first order from Anguilla...and it was from Frank! He ordered a bunch of our socks...
And now, I'm featured on the same blog we discovered before our first visit. This is what Frank said in his blog:
I meet the most interesting people at the gallery! Earlier in the summer, I had the pleasure of meeting a couple from New York, and the lady owns Lazyjack Press, an on-line purveyor of luxury men’s accessories. Bought some socks on line, and delighted when I received these very beautiful and comfortable Pima cotton socks from Peru! Check out www.lazyjackpress.com Lots of lovely things to consider, especially with the holidays around the corner…..
Thanks for everything, Frank! It feels so good to have a piece of LJP in one of my favorite places. Until our next visit!
