Jewelry Box Gifts for Valentine's Day

Jewelry is usually at the top of every girl's Valentine's Day wish list.  But let's think inside the box for a minute.  With all the fine and costume baubles, charms, statement pieces, studs, hoops and chandelier earrings we've accumulated, we need a pretty place to store them.  So a jewelry box (or few)-- like the decorative-yet-practical Jewellery Boxes from H. Samuel-- is the perfect gift for Valentine's Day.



Everything She Wants is partial to stackable jewelry trays (photo below) that fit neatly inside a dresser drawer.  This is a great way to organize your jewelry by type (bracelets in one tray and earrings and necklaces in their own trays).




And for a dresser top, nothing beats your Mom's classic, multi-section jewelry box (top photo) that will store all your jewelry stash with ease.




If you have a bigger bedroom or closet space, you can fit most of your collection in a stand-alone jewelry armoire.  But beware, these can look cluttered in smaller bedroom spaces.




Women with a bohemian sensibility love hand-painted wooden boxes.




For little girls, tweens and girly teens there's nothing more precious than a musical jewelry box with a princess or a ballerina on top. Who are we kidding, we want one too!




When traveling, make sure to keep your jewels safely stores in a foldable jewelry bag.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Graces Brooklyn Academy of Music, June 4-9, 2024

Dance is expression. Dance is spiritual. Dance is activism. Dance is life. I feel most alive when I am listening to music and dancing.  As a spectator and fan, some of my fondest moments of watching dance performances have been witnessing the dignity and grace of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Every time I see the Ailey company, I am inspired, moved, and grounded in the beauty and complexity of the African American experience.  Photo by Paul Kolnik For me, the highlight is always "Revelations," Mr. Ailey's three-part ode to his upbringing in the Black Baptist church. The three sections -- "Pilgrim of Sorrow"; "Take Me to the Water"; and "Move, Members, Move" -- tell the story of African American faith and persistence from slavery to freedom. Over the weekend,  I had the pleasure of taking an outdoor Community Workshop in downtown Brooklyn, where we learned some of the choreography for "Revelations." I beamed from ear to ear
