Adventures with Jay King: Sometimes Going Home is the Best Trip Yet
Well, here it is the first of November. I find myself in a hotel on the other side of the world. I have to say I’ve traveled most of my adult life, and I still find it quite fascinating. I love meeting new people, seeing other cultures and how they live on a day-to-day basis. It’s fun and always interesting. I’ve been on the run for most of October, and will be gone the greater part of this November.
November is always a great month for me, because it kicks off the holidays for me. I have to say one of the greatest things is Thanksgiving dinner. This trip has been a long hard one, and I won’t bore you with the details of some of the things I’ve eaten. Let’s just say that I’m looking forward to coming home and cooking with my family and friends. This year I’m spending it with some special people. I’m frying a turkey, and our friends are doing the rest. It is a great American tradition, and a great way to pig out on your favorite foods without feeling guilty–my kind of holiday.
I’ve got lots of special treats in store for you this month. First of all, I’ll be offering the new turquoise and lapis mosaic inlay bowls. These are brand new and it’s taken months and months of long hard days to finally make this happen. We’ve taken giant mussel shells and inlayed one in genuine turquoise and another in genuine lapis. These are completely handcrafted and very unique. We will release them about three days before my November visit. So if you want one you might want to shop early. I don’t have a lot of them, so I don’t expect them to last long.
The second big news is that I have a very special new travel jewelry portfolio. It’s perfect for travel or just a great way to organize your jewelry for when you’re on the go. A good friend of ours designed this, and when I saw it I just had to have one. We will also be offering this before the show but they are limited and I think they will sell quickly also.
My November visit is scheduled for Saturday, November 26th. I kick it off at 2AM until 5AM EST. We then finish up at 5pm to 7pm that evening. I think it’s going to be loads of fun, and I can’t wait to show you all the new designs and materials we have to offer. This will be my last visit before the holidays, and I won’t return until the last three days of December. I hope you can take a minute to stop in and see what’s new.
Until then, Happy Turkey Day and safe travels.
