Treasure Hunting in New York: CSJ Sale

Long story short: After finding out there was such a place like CJS Sale I could't help thinking of going there one day. Waiting at Tallinn Airport with Annika and Jane I still couldn't believe it was going to happen. I didn't believe it in New York either until I stumbled on some boxes full of beads while I was stepping out from elevator on the second floor...

It is unbelievable! It's a treasure vault full of sparkly stuff! Boxes after boxes after boxes... All full of beads, rhinestones, pearls, metal components, plastics and finished accessories. We were digging through it all as much as possible, lifting boxes and climbing on top of them. Can you imagine it?! Climbing on top of boxes full of glass beads? I mean, wow.

I was very practical, revising my box every now and then, lifting some of it out and leaving only the ones that were very precious in some reason or were in my search list for a long time. Rhinestones, rhinestones, sparkly colorful rhinestones... Vintage glass pearls, some glass beads and Prosser beads in a gorgeous color of purple that doesn't look grayish in artificial light. Those who use purple beads know what I'm talking about. Showing my finds in another post. Follow CJS Sale via web, Facebook or Instagram. Luckily Annika didn't forget to take some photos:



Üritan hästi lühidalt pika jutu kokku võtta: Pärast seda, kui sain teada kohast nimega CJS Sale, tekkis soov seda kunagi külastada. Oodates Tallinna Lennujaamas koos Annika ja Janega, ei suutnud seda aga mitte kuidagi uskuda. See ei jõudnud kohale ka siis, kui saabusime New Yorki, kuniks astusin liftist välja ja koperdasin helmeid täis karpide otsa...

See on lihtsalt uskumatu! Tõeline varakamber täidetud läikivate vidinatega! Karp karbis kinni... Kõik sisaldamas helmeid, ehtekive, pärleid, metallist osi, plastikut ja valmis aksessuaare. Me kaevasime end sellest kõigest läbi nii põhjalikult, kui võimalik, tõstes karpe ühest kohast teise ja ronides nende otsas. Suudad sa seda ette kujutada?! Et sa ronid karpide otsas, mis ääreni täis klaashelmeid? Tõsiselt, vau.

Ma olin väga praktiline, vaatasin oma karbi aegajalt läbi, tõstsin osa asju välja jättes ainult need, mis olid minu jaoks tõeliselt väärtuslikud või seisid mu soovinimekirjas jubs ammu. Ehtekivid, ehtekivid, sillerdavad värvilised ehtekivid... Vintage klaaspärlid, mõned klaashelmed ning Prosser helmed imeilusas sirelilillas toonis, mis tehisvalguses hallikana ei paista. Need, kes on kasutanud lillat värvi helmeid teavad, millest räägin. Oma saaki näitan eraldi blogipostituses. Jälgi CJS Sale tegemisi veebis, Facebookis või Instagramis.
