LADIES OF CASTOR & POLLUX: LADY NO. 10
Louise Eastman

Louise is a hard one to introduce. Words don’t do justice to how extraordinary she is. Four years ago, when we opened in the West Village she was literally our first customer. I learned lots about her that day: that we were neighbors, she has two daughters and is a real lover of all kinds of animals. Needless to say I instantly liked her and hoped we would become friends. Four years later, I can say, that some wishes do come true. The neighborhood wouldn’t be the same without her and I don’t feel that I would be either.  If you’ve ever popped in the store, there is a good chance you’ve met her – she’s probably modeling a piece from C&P, telling a good story and giving us all a great belly laugh. Reason enough to stop by in my book – see you soon.
