Make this year the year that you win Valentine's Day with a little help from Jessie Black. Stop into the store Wednesday, February 11th, from 5—7pm, where you'll find poet Silvi Alcivar waiting to help you make your most memorable gift ever. Silvi will be there with her typewriter on hand to whip up a customized poem after you tell her all about your chosen sweetheart. Poems are on a donation-based payment system, but store owner Jessie suggests giving $25 per love note. Sip some bubbly while you wait —five minutes tops— or shop for another gift from the store. Jessie Black's new line of luxurious cashmere jackets are a great way to round out the full love package.
