You know I love having the opportunity to get out of the New York studio and visit with clients at some of the best stores around the world where you can buy our designs. This coming Saturday, I am looking forward to our first event of the fall season at the Neiman Marcus store in Dallas NorthPark. But I cannot stop thinking about this past spring shows and meeting one of our best collectors, seven-year-old Aston!
It all happened at the Neiman’s store on Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago. Seems that Aston has been collecting our miniature figurines for a few years, and the team at NM let his parents know that I would be visiting. And even though they live a few hours away, both his parents drove all the way with Aston so we could meet. This charming young man was so sweet–it was a joy to meet him. He carefully looked around the department at all the new collections, and when his parents asked him what he wanted, he choose the Neiman Marcus exclusive elephant figurine from the Jungle Collection. His first big-time piece from us–how great is that!
All of my fall visits are listed on the website at jaystrongwater.com. Take a look, and I hope to see you this fall!
