what is beautiful jewelry but ornate and luxurious "ornaments" that we
decorate, adorn, embellish and bespangle ourselves with each and every
holiday season? It's a splendid
to celebrate the festive and brilliant bijoux that we have collected
from the finest jewelers in the world...and they are all right here for
your pleasure at Classic Collections!

depends on if you have been very, very good...or maybe just a tiny bit
naughty!!! Either way, we have simply devine fine jewelry for you

Oh Ladies, there's a PRINCESS in all of us! Yep, that Cinderella

Well, bring yourself into Classic

ball. We invite you to consider the marvelous creation of silk chiffon
with the jeweled bodice by marvelous designer Monique Lhuillier.
If embellished and beguiling black is your choice,
the variety we have this season will astound you. Not for the shy,
many of these gowns are ravishing and divinely form- fitting and

one caveat: we can NOT promise you will find your Prince!
FETES AND FEASTS
We had the pleasure
of working with Anita Gabler at her season opening of the Women and
Fashion luncheon series this week. Held in Palm Beach at Nick and
Johnnies, a wonderful

gathering of ladies
enjoyed a terrific lunch and got to dish about fashion and learn about
the fastest growing segment of the entire retail industry-resale!
As the featured
speaker, I was delighted to educate this fashionable group on "The
Thrill of the Hunt" and talked about the world of resale and consignment
shopping. Over the years and with the economy in flux, the profile of a
resale shopper has dramatically changed. They are now very

extremely sophisticated consumers that appreciate the quality and values
to be had in purchasing luxury, designer fashion merchandise at
consignment and resale boutiques.

We presented a
fashion show of daytime, evening and cocktail ensembles that were
composed entirely of clothing, jewelry, furs, shoes, handbags and
accessories from Classic Collections. The group was amazed, surprised and delighted at the quality, high-style and level of couture
designers that we carry in our shop.
It was a festive celebration with old and new friends, consignors and customers and a terrific start to the Holidays!

and had a terrific turnout! For two days we offered 10% discounts
throughout the shop and gifted a bottle of our private label wine to
each customer. The response from both local customers and out-of-town
visitors was incredible. In fact, we posted the top sales day in our
thing about Palm Beach is that there are several shopping districts that
are unique and utterly charming. From the world famous shops along
Worth Avenue and all the beautiful little Via's, to the smart, trendy
