A vibrant gift shop in NoLIta celebrates its 3rd anniversary
Jooneechees celebrates their 3rd Anniversary
Written and photographed by Erica Gonzales

Shop owner, Ann Poole, was all smiles on Wednesday night, June 5th, at the 3rd anniversary of her NoLIta boutique, Jooneechees, on Elizabeth Street, which celebrates American artists who make colorful handmade glassware, clever cards, ceramics, and other amusing gifts. In honor of the celebration, guests enjoyed cocktails, sweets, and 20% off their purchases.

Ditching her daily all-black garb, Ann Poole matched her shop’s interior, donning a summery pink and orange shift dress with a dotted trim. Her counter top served as a bar for the night, where she poured her homemade “Jooneechees’ Summer Cocktail,” a smooth, citrusy refreshment made from the juice of pineapple, lime and blood orange, mixed with tonic and vodka. The drink was served from barware available for sale in the store: a tall curvaceous glass pitcher decorated with red polka dots and a bright green brim. Colorful scrumptious treats perching the retail shelves included bite-size pizza squares from Grandaisy Bakery, traditional French macaroons from La Maison du Macaron, and cupcakes from Crumbs Bake Shop were served.

The crowd first consisted of window-shoppers and store regulars, including Nereida, a local hair and make-up artist who patronizes the shop frequently to buy thank-you gifts for her clients. Later on, more of Ann’s friends trickled in, selecting items for purchase, which soon turned into piles on the makeshift bar.

Ann’s husband even made an appearance, jokingly introducing himself as the shop’s “CFO.” Though he is Jooneechee’s financial extraordinaire, Mr. Poole doubled as the DJ that night, providing an entertaining playlist that featured Grouplove and Of Monsters and Men, then transitioned to Rihanna and Elie Goulding as the party progressed.

The handmade cards seemed to be the hit of the night, not solely because of their usefulness, but also their wit. One favorite bluntly read: “Congratulations, you’ve graduated to cougar status.” A more elegant graduation card stated: “Smart is the new sexy.” The occasion was one for friends, patrons, and passersby to enjoy each other’s company, a cocktail or two, and a fun shopping experience.
