My Best Friend Tiffany

There’s no doubt that when garaging you’ll find tons of stuff you want need. But every once in a while you find a treasure so amazing that even the most experienced garagers will look at you in disbelief. Rewind to a few weeks ago. I’m at a garage sale and I notice an old Jewelry box. It was sitting up high on top of a cabinet, but I could see a few necklaces hanging over the edge. I reached up to get a better look at a silver colored necklace with a heart shaped charm that I thought my twelve year old might like. Upon further inspection I decided it would make a fabulous stocking stuffer for my tween. I asked how much and the lady replied 50 cents. I paid my two quarters and made my way back to the car. While waiting for Mr. Right to finish looking at something else I noticed that my new treasure felt a little heavy. “Maybe it’s real silver” I thought. So I began looking for a silver stamp. “Yup, there it is”Then I saw & Co. engraved next to the stamp. I couldn’t make out the complete inscription so I decided to check it out with Mr. Right’s reading glasses when we got home. Long, long story short… When I put on the glasses there it was… Tiffany & Co. complete with Paloma Picasso’s signature! (A designer for Tiffany's) This stocking stuffer just bumped itself up to an official present! All I needed now was an official Tiffany’s box. Mr. Right and I made the drive to Scottsdale to the Tiffany store. For $15 they sent it out to be hand polished. They then packaged it nicely in a suede pouch, box and cute little Tiffany’s bag. My 20 year old was a little disappointed it wasn’t for her, but other than that it was a huge Christmas hit.
Gotta love Garaging. Love, Kelly
