In the event, the weather doesn’t fully cooperate with you this Memorial Day Weekend, and you find yourself inside looking for something to watch on Netflix, Amazon or Hulu, let me help point you in the right direction.
I stumbled upon Crazy About Tiffany on Hulu last weekend, and it is ideal for anyone who can relate to any of these feelings:
- Loves Tiffany & Co.
- Lights up when seeing the iconic Blue Box
- Remembers their first Tiffany piece of jewelry
- Insisted on having the Tiffany Sterling Silver Cup, Silver Spoon, Silver Fork & Spoon Set, Piggy Bank, 3 Piece Service Set for their children. (Perhaps I am the only one. I can share this with a smile because I am the first to admit that although I had to have it, it was never/seldom used!)
- Even after implementing the Konmari Method of tidying up from Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, still has a few blue boxes. ( Ok, I have way more than a few and I know they are boxes but what can I say, they “spark joy”!)
Air time is less than 1.5 hours, making it ideal for a fun treat without the long term commitment to a show!
While I can’t quite remember the first piece of Tiffany jewelry I purchased, I do remember about 20 years ago wanting this Etoile ring. I had to have it and I stalked it for months before I finally had enough money to purchase it.
I was determined to figure out a way to come up with funding. Then as luck would have it, we had a contest at work during the fourth quarter to incent the sales reps to sell more software before the end of the fiscal year. The sales organization was divided into teams and we competed to see which team could bring in the most revenue at the end of a two-week period. Everyone on the winning team received American Express gift cards. ( I think $200.00).
And so, as determined as ever, I saved my winnings until I had enough money to purchase the ring. I think at the time it was about $1,100.00. Nothing too unique or noteworthy in that part of the story but what I remember most is telling my boss at the moment he handed me the last $200.00 that got me to the amount needed that I had to go to Tiffany, in the middle of the workday! And I did. I left immediately to go get the ring.
I just have to look back and laugh at my younger self. Who does that? Apparently me! I hope you also have some good memories associated with a Blue Tiffany Box.
