In July, we have some big updates and fun new arrivals. At the start of the month, we reunited with Soraya after a few months working remotely! As we navigated through this strange time in our own pace, we made a big decision on what's next for Yoseka. We signed a new lease in Greenpoint. We love the new shop, and are very excited to see what's coming next! This month, we will be busy planning for our new home as well as preparing for the upcoming planners in September.

These days, our work routine has completely changed. A lot of communications are happening more digitally, and we work directly from home a lot. We actually have moved all stationery from our shop to our home so we could work more efficiently. Although our place is filled with stationery, it’s not a complete new change for us.

Even after we opened our shop, and after we moved to just 10 blocks away from the shop, we...
