Contessa’s has a favorite necklace, cuff and earrings set that has sold in our shop for five years. The faux tortoise necklace is 18″, the cuff is 2″ and the earrings are 1″ loops. Jackie Kennedy would have worn this in the 60’s. It’s been one our best sellers and we just keep reordering it. Styles come and go, but this one just keeps going. Great with jeans and a white shirt and also great with your little black dress.
Mary Lake Thompson is a true entrepeneur. She has turned a small card company into a nationally known giftware business with thirty-one years of experience. Her packaging is creative, colorful and wholesome. Her flour sack towels are two to a bundle. The towels dry in 10 minutes max. They measure 30 x 30 and can be used to set a table, dry wine glasses or just handy when baking and you need pretty towels to wipe your hand on.
The picture of the crab towels attached could cover a picnic table to enjoy crabs this Memorial Day weekend. And since they are 100% Turkish cotton, they will wash and dry nicely. Sold at Contessa’s as a set of two for $19.99. If you are planning on visiting friends why not take these along as a housewarming gift. Contessa’s also stocks other styles as there are over eighty in the Mary Lake Thompson collection. Stop by and take a peek.
We all dream of going to Paris. Even ten-year old daughters. Last week one of my great customers came in with her daughter who had been keeping her eye on our colorful Paris journal. She begged her Mom to purchase it. This child will now begin documenting about traveling to Paris.. I have no doubt that she will be going to visit Paris before you know it. Can you dream of Paris? Write it down first and then work towards making your dream real. It worked for me. This is how Contessa’s came to be.
