Everly Utica Proud

Nguyen Phat Grocery Market

The exotic flavors in downtown Utica

A store transports people to the time of their favorite pastime in their lives

by Everly Liu

Nguyen Phat Oriental Store is an Asian grocery store owned by Dung Lu and her husband. Both of them immigrated from South Vietnam to America in 1990. In 1996, Dung came to Utica, New York, and opened Nguyen Phat. The store previously located on Albany Street. In order to keep the regular customers and have more space, Dung decided to move to Bleecker Street where is only one block away from the old location. The store is filled with all sorts of Asian products. The aisle in front of the checkout counter narrowed by cardboard boxes displaying different fillings’ pastries, raw peanuts, dragon fruits, and jackfruit temptingly cracked open. Freshly roasted bread and sesame mochi balls were positioned for the impulse buy next to the register.

The products in Nguyen Phat is abundant. Dung said they have products from countries like Burma, Vietnam, China, Japan, Korea, and Thailand to catering for customers from different countries. With the certain sentimental attachment to the products from their native land, customers would like to patronize Nguyen Phat. Without much decoration, the store interior is plain. Festive tasseled lanterns hung from the drop ceiling tiles; a ceramic lucky cat waved from a shelf behind the register. The nostalgic atmosphere oozing out from every corner of Nguyen Phat Oriental Store.

After about 14 years in Utica, Dung said she loves this city more. In the 1970s or 1980s, a number of Asian markets were founded in Utica. As time goes on, Dung and her husband gradually integrate into this city. They have two sons and a daughter. And she mentioned one of her son who works in a barbershop near New Hartford. For Dung, no matter how far she goes in life, the place where her family is will always be the best place. Nguyen Phat is where Dung and her family belong to.

“It was nostalgic; it made me feel connected to Utica,” says Annie Lee, a customer of Nguyen Phat. She says that the store catered to many different Asian cuisines as well as less expensive than their counterparts at Western supermarkets.

Everly’s Side Hustle Progress

Necklace’s pendant

dry cloth.jpgWeekly schedule

My brand’s name is “You”, the meaning behind it is “Carry An Attitude of Happiness With You“.

Engraving & Laser Cut

With sand clock shape, the first one is about a crying face can’t reach its lucky stars; another one is you turn it upside down so the smiling face(which is also a ü) gets the stars

Purpose Statement or Objective

My personal goals are explore the jewelry design and improve the packaging design. Based on that, I’m going to create personalized earrings and brand the earrings through packaging.

 

What

I will create my own illustrations and print them on multi materials(like plastic, wood, paper, cloth…) with 3D-print technique, and make them into earrings manually or by laser-cutting.

 

Who

Since my design of earrings and packaging are related to minimalism which is my very own custom, I’m also thinking about adding some customized elements according to people who are interested in the one-of-a-kind jewelry.

 

How

I will using AI and PS to create the illustrations.

If needed, I’ll learn how to modeling the earring by Rhinoceros 3D.

Using 3D print and laser cutting

Packaging: send the idea to the commercial printing company or make it myself
