    Two Andy M/Hinata strands with more of my street clothes. Couldn’t resist slipping the clothes in since that was an experience in itself. Besides being so inexpensive, the area was described as “higglety pigglety”. It’s a mix of wholesale and retail and you can’t really tell who is wholesale until you ask and they say something like “No sale!” And point you to the door. You also can’t try anything on, and most places don’t have mirrors! What an adventure!

    Both strands are beautiful, but that graduation and solo pearls mix one is just so unusual .... love it! And the clothes, oh, jeg, the clothes!!! Do you just go with a purse, and grab a suitcase and new clothes when you get there? That would be so tempting Adorable clothing on you ... the textures are fascinating.

    Ahahaha, thanks, Cathy! I can pack a surprising amount of stuff in my suitcase and still have space for shopping. However, I have been known to buy another suitcase for the trip home on occasion. Good to have options since you never know what you’re going to find!

    LOL Jeg, I confess it took 2 extra suitcases from T J Maxx to get me home from Ruckus Mostly oranges, avocados, and presents for my family, rather than pearls or clothes ...

    You might check with Jeremy or Hisano. I think Jeremy said something about Hisano picking some strands. Not sure if they were the multiís or blues, or both.

    Worked on a card of freshwater pearls, plus a few extras. These are being drilled, so I don’t have them in hand for a decent photo. Not sure if I will keep these together as a strand or use them for projects.

    Seeing those trays and bags of pearls makes me dizzy in a good way! Love the clothes and jewels, thank you so much for the great photos, JEG, looking forward to more!

    Jeg, not only heavy, but confuses the TSA ... But, we park valet, so our car comes right to baggage claim to get us, the suitcases have wheels, so not as bad as it sounds. And the look on our friends' faces when they see the oranges is so worth it.

    Cathy, you’re a good friend to haul all that fruit home for friends!

    I’ll finish with a few more clothes pix. I bought a lot more, but I’ll let Baby Nurse take over with her photos because I know she took a lot and also bought a lot of beautiful pearls, and this is a pearl forum after all... It was a blast traveling with you, BN!

    I wore this dress today. Navy flannel check and lined with a baby blue. Too dark to see the pattern or tuck seaming. I bought more dresses, but I’m not capturing all the detail trying to get the full length in indoors.

    Another photo from yesterday. The top has a lot of detail, not only in the embroidery, but lots of seams and opening in back with buttons going down.

    And the rest are more tops-
