Having spent a good portion of my childhood on a subtropical island, I found winters in New York unbearably cold when I went to college. Frozen fingers and slipping on icy sidewalks was never really my thing! But if there's one thing I always look forward to in the winter, whether it be in subtropical or subzero temperatures, is the opportunity to lavish gifts on my loved ones.
Now that I run my own jewelry business, I'm busier than ever during the holidays, and this means I end up finding the best gifts at the shows I'm a part of! So come join me in the Bay Area and see the marvelous gifts you can find for your friends and families.
