We are so glad to have been invited to participate in last week’s United Nations Bazaar. The whole event was such a fun experience. Hosted this year at the Kuwait Mission to the United Nations in New York, this annual shopping event is organized to raise money for various humanitarian charities. This year’s Bazaar was dedicated to the refugee victims of Syria, who have been suffering greatly due to their current situation.
The event attracted a wonderfully eclectic mix of vendors to participate in the all-day event that brought together a diverse international crowd. Hundreds crowded in over the course of the day to support an important cause while enjoying delicious international cuisine and fabulous shopping.
Patty Tobin brought a colorful selection of classic and playful styles that capture this season’s hottest trends: large statement style necklaces, pink pearls, blue, blue, and more blue accessories. Our colorful gemstone chains were one of our hottest items. They come in such great colors like our rich red (carnelian), bright blue (topaz), chocolate brown (smokey topaz), black (onyx), and purple (amethyst). And at $295, these babies are really a steal! Easy to wear long, doubled or layered — a definite “throw-on-and-go” piece.Ladies were also loving Patty’s new Hematite Cube Bracelet ($195) with its large crystal-set 18k white vermeil magnetic clasp. The fun part about these is that you can wear them as bracelets, or connect the clasps and wear two or more as a necklace. Gotta love that versatility.
We always love working with the incredible women of the Islamic Heritage Society whose hard work and dedication is truly an inspiration. We look forward to participating in their next philanthropic endeavor!
