This 1920’s sterling and crystal necklace is a favorite from the Brimfield Flea Market in the early 1990’s. I attended with my friend and client; Harriet Love. Auntie Harriet appointed herself my guide at that famous market and it was fun. I returned the favor by taking her to the big Flea in Charlotte, NC one spring weekend. We spent the night before the flea in a nearby hotel where Harriet asked the doe-eyed waitress for a wine list. ‘Oh, we have both kinds. Red and white,’ the waitress replied.

Cool-as-a-cucumber, NYC native Harriet ordered a double glass of ‘the red’ and asked to have it placed in the ‘fridge for exactly four minutes. She explained “The cold dulls the palate and it is remarkable how one can broaden the range of acceptable wines by dropping their temperature ten degrees…”

Words to live by.
