“When buying for friends and family I like to make

the gift personal and something that they would not

buy for themselves. A photo album filled with

pictures from a recent trip, a scarf with their

favorite animal or a crazy splurge gift. In the age of

holiday wish lists with attached links, it feels great

to pull off the unexpected surprise. A classic Chanel

or Hermes bag under the tree never disappoints!”

“The difficult thing about buying for loved ones is

the range of interests and personalities. I always try

to buy jewelry that fits the individual. Our upcoming

auction includes signed jewelry by boundary-pushing

designers like Mark Davis and Judy Geib alongside

classic jewelry and watch makers like Van Cleef &

Arpels and Breitling.”

for friends and family. I love to expose them to new

authors who I think would spark their interest. Our

sales offer an array of artists and authors from

Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Henri Toulouse

Lautrec and Joan Miro to Vladimir Nabokov, F.

Scott Fitzgerald, and JRR Tolkien.”
