RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct. 31, 2011) – Bailey’s Fine Jewelry will host its largest estate trunk show in store history from Nov. 8 – 12. The Estate Trunk show will spend one day at each Bailey’s Fine Jewelry store location. The Estate Trunk show will include pieces from the Bailey’s Estate & Antique Collection and the renowned Singer Collection. The additional Singer Collection pieces from New York City will provide customers the opportunity to see special pieces not normally available for purchase in the store.
The Singer Collection was founded in 1982 by Stephen L. Singer and is a continuation of his family business which began in 1901. Located in New York City, Singer houses one of the country’s most extensive collections of estate jewelry. The collection includes Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco, Retro era pieces and other precious heirlooms.
The Estate Trunk Show will feature over $3 million worth of inventory, with pieces ranging from $400 to over $35,000. The show will also include celebrity pieces previously owned by Bob Hope, Tony Curtis, opera singer Beverly Sills and even a piece given to Mia Farrow by her good friend, Frank Sinatra.
“We’re so excited to host the Estate Trunk Show and have such a huge collection of pieces to show,” said Marci Bailey, who oversees the Bailey’s Estate & Antique Collection. “Each piece tells such a unique story and we can’t wait to share them with our patrons.”
In 2008, Bailey had the idea to start a collection of unique pieces with personality that were still affordable and accessible to patrons. From this idea, the Bailey’s Fine Jewelry Estate & Antique Collection was launched and has been a huge success ever since. Bailey travels across the country picking up one-of-a-kind pieces to add to the Estate Collection. The collection has been featured in Cary Magazine, The News & Observer, Triangle Style magazine and Her magazine.
