Sunshine in September
September 16th, 2016


My father first turned me on to Henry David Thoreau when I was a teenager, and yet every time I return to Thoreau I’m struck by a new insight.

My latest favorite line is this: “One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.” Because, here at J.Falkner, that’s what we are all about: bright, colorful cards to bring summery happiness whatever the season.

After all, if we’re lucky enough to base ourselves in Palm Beach (that’s the Eastern end of Worth Avenue, above, and beyond that the Atlantic), why not share the joy?


What is yellow but pure sunshine? This new trio of cards are now available at retailers across the US, and also up north in Canada at Indigo, and various independent stores.


These awnings along Worth Avenue in Palm Beach are my favorite — something so fresh about the yellow, with white piping, against the soft pink stone.


Sunshine through palm fronds — the essence of Palm Beach.


And, finally, a charming street vignette of two Vespas idling while their owners pop into Neiman Marcus for something no doubt essential.

May there be sunshine wherever you are!

(And remember you can shop these cards, and many more, at our online store here.)
