The Styley: Martha Sarfaty, cheesemonger
The Styley: You're a cheesemonger, which means you sell cheese. Where do you do that?
Martha Sarfaty: The Bedford Cheese Shop in Williamsburg.
TS: Let's start with the belt. What happened on the day you bought it?
MS: My belt broke at work.
TS: While you were mongering cheese.
MS: Yes, while I was mongering.
TS: Do you remember what kind of cheese you were mongering.
TS: Okay, okay, continue.
MS: So I'm at work, and my belt rips where the hole is, so I go to the vintage store next door. [The belt] was five dollars.
TS: What's the name of the vintage store?
MS: Vice Versa.
TS: What appealed to you about the belt?
MS: It's a really simple, classic design, but with bright colors.
TS: I mean, it's a rainbow braided belt. What's not to like?
MS: And then the other side is muted, which I think is really amazing.
TS: So it flips!
MS: I think I could figure out a way to flip it. Oh, and it's a Capezio belt.
MS: I was pretty excited about it.
