THE SAVVY SHOPPER
What every girl wants....
All That Glitz!
This glitzy store goes the extra mile. They have thought of just about everything when it comes to servicing the customer. You know how we girls like to shop, we can shop just about anywhere, sometimes dragging husbands kicking and screaming behind us. All That Glitz thought about those poor guys by putting in a lounge at the back of the store complete with comfy leather lounge chairs, a media center with a plasma TV, the latest newspapers and magazines and a complimentary coffee machine that not only makes coffee you can enjoy a latte or cuppachino. They thought of the kids too. There is a play room called Got Glitz that has baskets full of toys, a table and chairs set, a kitchen set and for the little artists an easel all set up. The kids don't want to leave!
While I was there they told me to go check out the restrooms....very cool art deco! Where else have you shopped when they told you to go check out the restrooms!!
And now to the merchandise! There are some unique treasures in this store by their designer. Each handcrafted one of a kind originals inspired by centuries old Royal families in Europe, the Far East and Asia. The jewelry in this collection includes many gemstones, ruby, quartz, lapis, malachite and jade. Necklaces run $90.-$110. Earrings from $27. They are all displayed in a glass case and each piece has a title.
The owner Julia Vratsolis said each and every piece in her store is hand selected she doesn't buy in bulk. The inventory is rotated rapidly so if you see something you like you better get it or it likely won't be there the next time.
The display tables are well organized each with different jewelry, a table of just pearls, one of rhinestones with necklaces, bracelets, earrings, tiaras and even a giant rhinestone spider pin.
You will find pastel jewelry to go with any color outfit. There is ethnic glamour from the Philippines and India in rich browns and burnished golds. It is fun to browse through and see the many different glitz and glamour pieces. One table was natural agate, some with shell stone, glass beads, bone, wood, and resins. Pretty greens and genuine turquoise. All that glitters in golds and sterling silver. Sparkly Swarovski and Austrian crystals. Maruno glass was outstanding. Shells from Bali set in .925 sterling. And the fabulous Dichroic one of a kind pieces as seen in museums.
They carry a men's line of fashion jewelry in stainless steel, for your manley man. Very handsome.
The fashion jewelry and accessories are reasonably priced and unusual finds. I am sure you will enjoy shopping at All That Glitz.
