A few days ago, I received a press evite to an event at Christofle, the French silver store on Madison Avenue and 70th Street. So I drove in, paid $2 to park on the street and mingled with the silverazzi inside--writers, editors, party planners, wedding bloggers and more.
I like going to these events for the glamour, and because it brings me back to being on staff at magazines, and attending press events. Being ahead of the curve, on top of the trends. That part is fun. It's also nice to get into New York and shake hands with my peers. Beyond all that, these events spark article ideas for me to pitch to magazines.
I was interested to hear about Silver Ever [sp?], a new treatment that Christofle will be phasing in on its products, so they won't tarnish for five years. And I loved the jewelry line. It's gorgeous. Really nice earrings, necklaces and rings, not outrageously priced.
Good night. Thanks for listening.
