Valentine's Day Ideas: Flotsam & Jetsam at Catbird

I'm going to do a very traditional Valentine's Day post later this week, and show lingerie in red and pink from Victoria's Secret Herald Square. But first it's a non-34th Street VDay gift idea, because it's a super cool gift and delivery package. And also because I'm a big fan of Rebekah at Flotsam & Jetsam, and own a couple of her pieces, so I can vouch for their handiwork. Her Spanish Galleon is the baddest thing east of the Atlantic Ocean.

Catbird and Flotsam and Jetsam are offering a special Valentine's Day promotion: when you buy one of Fotsam and Jetsam's Love Stamp Pendants for him, or Love Note Lockets for her, you can add a special delivery option: Cupid ala Catbird's bike messenger extraordinaire, Dave, will hand deliver the necklace with your secret message inside, free of charge. However, I'd highly encourage you lucky recipients to tip Dave, as riding around the New York City boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens delivering love notes dressed as Cupid is not for the weak of heart, or weak-spirited, or weak-limbed. That kind of strength deserves at least a fiver.

The hearts open up, & your love note rests inside.

Catbird, 219 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
