What's New at Stifel & Capra!

A LOT is new! The vintage hawaiian shirts are saying "aloha" until next summer and the snuggly, groovy, rockin' vintage coats are coming in! Also just brought in a great collection of vintage fedoras; all different sizes and funky little plaids are on the rack.

Have been interviewing a BUNCH of jewelers lately so we can have a nice selection of items for Christmas shopping. I have been fighting my inclination to think about the holidays when it is still 80 degrees outside but I didn't put a lot of my sale and seasonal stuff out until after Halloween last year and I heard about it from my clients. "Oh I would have bought that had I seen it sooner..." So you'd better believe I am going to get moving a little bit faster this year.
This silver collection is hand crafted by Nella Fischer. I met Nella at a meeting of the Northern Virginia Handcrafter's Guild. She does metalsmithing work the old-fashioned way, by hand. I was especially enamored of her new link jewelry. Her "Orbits" colection pieces are swirls of silver with floating silver balls floating in the individual shaped links.

My cheap thrill for the week was going and getting my back and neck worked on by Alexis at Tri Therapeutic Massage . Between sewing, driving, painting and pounding on the computer I need ALL of the help I can get! I feel human again!
