The Blue Bird -- Alison McNerney, Mendham

Alison McNerney’s granny had fabulous style – her heart was always covered with sparkle, her fingers glittered, her ears were weighted with color and her presence was heard before she entered a room as her arms jingled as bangles and bracelets made their music.  And so began her introduction to the power of costume jewelry.  The Blue Bird is a collection of vintage jewelry from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.  Many of the pieces are signed:  Miriam Haskell, Hattie Carnegie, Alice Caviness, Vendome, Trifari, Hobe, to name a few.  Vintage jewelry tends to be bold, fanciful, whimsical, and fun – it is jewelry that, as Rachel Zoe says, “starts a conversation.”  So, some to the sale to start a conversation with Alison from The Blue Bird!

Additionally, Jojo’s Bags & Things (Johanna Fiorito-Hale, New Providence), Sandella Art (Sandy Marmorato, Summit), Secret Garden Soap of Madison (Tracee Palmer, Madison), Take A Bough, Inc.
