Last Thursday on a rainy New York City evening, we hopped in a car and headed to the beyond gorgeous Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion for the Heritage Auctions Spring Luxury Preview event. The mansion is situated right on 5th Avenue and 79th Street, and it’s one of the most iconic locations in NYC (where parts of Cruel Intentions was filmed and where this year’s official Met Ball after party will be held). Our event with Heritage Auctions was to showcase the eclectic and stunning collection of designer jewelry, handbags, accessories and art that would go under the gavel for Heritage’s Spring Auction Event.
We perused the bottom floor, where an amazing mix of jewelry was showcased, and then moved to the second floor, which felt like home to us – naturally, because it housed the auction’s amazing handbag selection. Behind glass, exotic Hermes pieces and timeless Chanel bags sat for our viewing pleasure, while the room across the way featured live piano music played adjacent to a Chanel bicycle.
The preview began at 5 pm, and after thirty minutes the mansion was buzzing with PurseBlog readers, PurseForum members, and auction lovers alike. We had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people who have supported us for years, as well as see some new faces who have just discovered us; either way, we had a blast bonding with our new friends. Special thanks to Heritage Auctions for hosting the event with us and allowing us to be part of a magical night.
