Costume Jewelry Trunk Show and Sale Returns!

Costume Jewelry Trunk Show and Sale
Connie Kay & Judie Simkins
Thursday, November 16 - Saturday, November 18
11 AM- 7 PM

For 27 years, Connie Kay and Judie Simkins have been collecting classic costume jewelry. Inspired by a teacher who “educated their fingertips” to recognize quality, the pair have been offering their wares at exclusive trunk shows and pop up shops up and down the east coast, from Pennsylvania to Palm Beach.


Connie and Judie collect pieces by the finest designers of costume jewelry, including Chanel, Schiaparelli, and Schreiner. Working in the 1920s, Coco Chanel was the first great designer and proponent of costume jewelry. Famously flamboyant, Elsa Schiaparelli lends her name to a long line of American-made costume jewelry. The Schreiner Company, founded in 1951, is known for its “upside down” rhinestone settings and vivid colors. Connie and Judie have pieces by these designers and many others!
