“We’ve been friends since we were little, I was always the thinker and planner and he was the maker and builder. I had the plan in my mind but I would never be able to create it, but he always understood me and came back with a solution. Our business is built around this. We wouldn’t be able to open up in the morning without each other. When he turned thirty I bought him Naftali as a present because it reminded me of him, as the good troll or fairy of the shop. Naftali sat at the tip jar for years, he had his own regulars and he was a real personality in the shop. One day someone stole him, only him, without the tip jar which made us sad. But then a couple of weeks later, one of our very nice regulars came in with this; a slightly bigger Naftali she bought as a present. I always say that we spend more time working together than we spend with our partners so in a way Naftali is the child of our friendship… Does that sound weird?”
