December 2011


Truly, 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

time 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!


Do you treasure the impeccable and timeless designs of Tiffany? Delight in the perfection of pearls and enamel earrings from De Vroom? If your taste is more subdued, there is the beautiful brooch from Van Cleef & Arpels or the always stylish gem and gold earrings from Bulgari.  





Are you looking for a show-stopper...something that will kick the room and holiday

18Kt Gold, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire and Diamonds

up a notch? How

about the stunning emerald and

diamond necklace with matching earrings, the gold, ruby, emerald and diamond necklace and earrings or the rich ruby and pearl set

Emerald and Diamonds

that will certainly turn heads.


 I would venture to say to all you ladies and potential Santa's, it 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 to put under your tree!







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

story sure did the trick and I know that we all secretly want to be the dazzling, elegant Princess even for just one night!


Well, bring yourself into Classic

Lavish In Lhuillier

Collections and we can help festoon, beribbon and bedeck you in finery worthy of any 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 might-just might-require a few days of dieting!

But, when you make that grand entrance, it will be SO worth it! Do you prefer more refined, sophisticated glamour?  Look no further! Escada Couture, Valentino and Oscar de la Renta grace our selections along with other masters of ball gowns such as Fiandaca, Carmen Marc Valvo and Liancarlo.

The one thing we can predict with absolute certainty: you WILL look and feel like the proverbial Fairytale Princess in any of these Fantasy Frocks. However, one caveat: we can NOT promise you will find your Prince!






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

Sally Kimball and Anita Gabler

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 fashion-conscious,

Women and Fashion Luncheon

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

St. John Couture, Judith Leiber Necklace, Francesco Rogani Bag

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!




Time is running out and if you are tired and just can't face another mob scene at the mall, come on over to the Royal Poinciana area.


Classic Collections recently participated in the "Shop Small Business" effort 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 company's history!


The wonderful 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 shops along County

Road to the wide variety of mens, ladies, consignment and specialty shops in the Royal Poinciana District, there is something for everyone.


The local businesses exist to serve and please the people of Palm Beach and to delight and be entertaining to all of the visitors who grace our island paradise. We all appreciate your patronage and loyalty and from those of us at Classic Collections, we want to thank you for your business and friendship. You have enriched our lives!







While it might be hard to shop for someone at a consignment store with most items being one-of-a kind, what better way to say Happy Holidays than with a Classic Collections Gift Certificate!

Good for up to one year, the personalized Gift Certificate can be used for anything in the shop and for items on sale. With "value" on everyone's mind right now, the power to purchase designer, luxury goods at a fraction of the original cost is enticing. For those "consigner devotees", a Gift Certificate can lead to thoughts of leisurely perusing the superb merchandise at Classic Collections. From handbags to shoes, dresses, evening gowns, accessories, jewelry, furs and more...the choices are varied and almost infinite. And, with our stock changing on a daily basis, the selections are endless! What a "fun" gift!




Scarves are the most versatile and essential clothing accessories and are just the gift for any fashionable gal. We

Ferragamo Scarves

We have a fabulous selection of brand new stingray merchandise. Stingray leather, also known as

"galuchat" (named after the French artisan who realized the potential of stingray skin, Jean-Claude Galuchat) is currently being featured at Classic Collections.


Offering a collection of handbags, wallets, billfolds, eyeglass holders, cell

Stingray Collection

phone cases and other items, these accessories are made of authentic, exotic stingray leather and are known for their durability. This unique leather is strong and resilient-just what you would expect from these cartilaginous fish that are related to sharks!




We are pleased to announce a terrific new assortment of vintage and highly collectable costume jewelry just in time for the holidays! We are offering a stunning variety of brooc

Vintage Jewelry
