Q: How was your Christmas season and what were your hot sellers?
“The actual numbers are still being tabulated, but what I can say is the numbers are close to 10 percent over last year’s holiday season. Which was quite a surprise as the months and weeks leading up to the holiday season were very quiet. But after the presidential election people started spending money. We have a great clientele and sold some very special high-end pieces, one notable piece was a pink diamond bracelet. For 30 years we’ve been holding a 30 percent off sale that runs the length of the holiday shopping season, from Thanksgiving Day weekend through Christmas Eve. The event still attracts a lot of customers and every year we invite vendors for at least one trunk show, which was held December 9-10 this year.
