Last month I traveled to NY to exhibit at the wholesale gift show at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan.
During the time that I was away from the studio in Oregon, we had several e-commerce orders and I asked Tricia in the office to email each one and let them know we would ship their purchases as soon as I returned with the jewelry.
One of the purchases was our Green Opal Leather Bracelet for a gentleman in New York and he replied and asked was there any way he could pick up the bracelet from me while I was in NY? Well to me Manhattan is crazy big so I sent message that I would be at the Javits center...Turns out he would be 3 blocks away at a meeting the very next day. Such a strange coincidence and serendipity for sure. He called when his meeting was done, walked to the Javits and I met him coordinating via text-I was so thrilled to find out it was a present for his wife...their 3rd anniversary and their son was born in October, the Opal birthstone.
I couldn't have been prouder that he selected our handmade bracelet for such a special occasion and that I got to deliver it in person.
Here's is email back. "FYI, my wife loved the bracelet. It is "so her". Thanks again!"
