Lenise, Rhoda, Jewelry
On Saturday, my friend Rhoda and I did our part to boost the economy....or at least Lenise's economy! Our friend, Lenise has a little side business where she helps people prioritize their belongings. She also helps with estate sales, etc. She offered to give us first shot at purchasing a bit of the estate jewelry that she has acquired. WOW! What a haul!!!
We met at Lenise's place on Saturday at noon. Rhoda and I (along with Lenise's friend, Ian) tried on all kinds of vintage costume jewelry. It was like playing dress-up when we were little girls. There were some very unusual pieces.
We were so overwhelmed after about an hour-plus of shopping, that we had to walk around the corner and break for lunch at Jan's Coffee Shop in West Hollywood. Jan's is a classic coffee shop with many dining choices. I particularly like places when they have photographs of the food on the menu. The owners of Jan's also own The Astro in Silverlake, a lovely example of Googie architecture by the famous architects, Armet & Davis.

Anyway, after we had a delicious lunch, we walked back to Lenise's house with clear heads, full stomachs and were ready to decide about our jewelry purchases.

I must say, I happened upon some very unusual pieces and am extremely pleased. This was an early b-day gift to myself! Thanks Lenise!
