    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.

    Their son runs the men's shop and does a great job helping you.

    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.
