    Any news about Laurent Effel?

    Attention shopping friends! Has anyone heard from Anna and Erick at Laurent Effel? I have spent many a happy day with them and they really do become like family, but I haven't been in a few years, and I was wondering how they and their children are after the hurricane. It seems like they still have the store, and it seems from some photos on the Vanita Rosa site that Vanita Rosa is now near them. Thank you for any info you might have. I hope they are all well and still in business!!

    Anna and Erik and the sons are fine. So are the stores. I have to get in to town and see her too. I will pass along your concern.

    We saw them this past year and they looked great. They live in Pte. Milou and did not have any damage there to speak of.

    Laurent Effel was in great shape 10 months ago when we were on the island. Actually, most of Gustavia was up and running for the Bucket last March and public spaces looked as good as ever.

    I once, via email, purchased a handbag during the sale; Anna held onto for me until I could pick it up in person a couple of months later, saving me TONS in shipping. For that...I always go back!

    Nothing like the smell of leather-in automobiles and shoe and handbag stores.

    Someone please take some photos of the store so we can see this year's colors! Pantene 2019 color of the year is Coral! Anna and her husband are always on the mark for the latest fashion- colors each year! It then takes two years for those colors to reach Indianapolis-Ugh!

    Yes, you are right! They are always ahead. Quite frankly, nothing I have ever bought at Anna's has ever gone out of style; kind of the definition of classics, SBH style. Every bag has a memory and you are always happy when you are using or wearing something from Saint-Barth.

    Does anyone remember a gathering in Manhattan of women from St Barth where we were requested to show up with one of Anna’s bags? That was a fun night.

    I am sitting in my office in icy NJ in a pair of leather shoes that I bought from Erick the year, when they planned to close (don't remember how many years ago). The shoes are still strong, the leather is still gorgeous. And them having a special feat - the island siluette on the outer sole are keeping me warm in this freezing winter weather.

    I love when I spot the island cut outs on my leather goods too.
