Today, I received exciting news! A reader commented on a long ago blog post about my troubles with Cold Eeze lozenges and included that she…“Was DELIGHTED to see Murray’s Cheese Shoppe in NYC’s West Village is now carrying your cheese – congrats!”
Wow! That’s awesome! In my mind, Murray’s Cheese carrying my cheese would be the ULTIMATE COMPLIMENT!! Murray’s Cheese in New York City! It’s an iconic cheese shop! It’s the stuff cheese legends are made of! It’s where I would feel like “I’ve Made It” if they carried my cheese!
So, to receive the news that they ARE carrying my cheese was quite surprising.
Why? Well, The Goat Cheese Lady Creamery isn’t even built yet, and I don’t sell any cheese yet!
Therefore, I made my first ever call to New York City. NYC. The Big Apple. Matt Lauer’s stomping grounds (yep, still want to be on The Today Show with Matt, just awaiting the call). I dialed 1-212-243-3289 – Murray’s Cheese. I have never been to New York City, I have never called New York City, and I have never called Murray’s Cheese. Until today.
I explained to the man who answered that I am The Goat Cheese Lady and we are building The Goat Cheese Lady Creamery and that it’s not finished yet but we are planning to be open in the Spring and one of my blog readers was thrilled to find my cheese there and were they selling any cheese made by The Goat Cheese Lady?
No, Adam said, they aren’t. Phew. Mystery solved. I’m not sure what she saw, but it wasn’t mine or anyone else’s going by The Goat Cheese Lady (which was my immediate concern and caused me to think I need to trademark my name?…I’ll take some advice, please!)
But that led to my next question…would they consider it when we’re open? I mean, we’re going to be a tiny farmstead artisan goat cheese creamery and I would have enough cheese to supply his famous store for about a minute, but do they ever feature small creameries?
Drum roll please…
He said, YES!
I’ll keep you posted on that and will most likely combine my stint of cheese sales at Murray’s Cheese during the same trip where I sit on The Today Show with Matt.
