They are without question the best value.

Has anyone else found any survival goodies lately or did you get any for Christmas?
I'm going to trust your judgment - I just ordered this.

OH NO!!! I'm laughing a bit, shaking my head, and feeling bad for you all at once.

lololololol

I had to read this twice before I "got" it . . . one of those things you can't skim over and halfway read, lol.

I think the Villa twins were really triplets, tho . . . Behyndtha was the one you didn't mention.

For people who don't know, the Seybold Building is an old 1930's 12 or 14 story office building that for decades houses dozens of jewelery manufacturers, repair shops, and wholesale jewelry firms. The first two floors is an arcade with a score or more of cut-rate jewelers that are open to the public. The displays are dazzling.

Talking about fabulous jewels, I have the big coffee-table book of photos of Liz Taylor's jewelry collection. The collection was amazing. Astonishing. When most of the pieces went for auction at Christie's, the final prices realized was something like $128,000,000.
I have never seen the Liz Taylor coffee table book but have wanted to! I would love that . . . also, have searched to get as much info as I could when Jackie Onassis' jewelry was sold. At that time, the internet was not as robust and I had meant to buy the catalogue from Sotheby's b/c I knew it would become a collector's item in itself. She had exquisite taste.
