welcome to tuleste market
turner introduced me, (as she so loves to do) to satu and celeste as a similarly-minded vintage loaner/collector, over cookies and wine last night. there was discussion of quality vintage chains, upcoming openings, norcal thrifting, and an uncanny bond over same sweet knit number [which i now know was made in japan]..
in under a year, these gals, satu and celeste greenberg, have done the impossible. by accessing their dreamy, pragmatic, and delightful selves and creating this [most fabulous] vintage inspired jewelry collection, called tuleste market.
walking into the home of tuleste market is like waking in a bauble junkies dream.. waking up to believe the perfect long chain has arrived, and p.s.it's got an amazing clasp. for as you see, their attention to detail is impeccable and whimsical, each piece can be added to or twisted round the wrist, to create an alternate impression. and on top of all that, these sisters have spent enough time in thrift stores to know a nice looking pricetag and they are happily responding in kind. the simple yet intricate pieces are delightful on their own and completely badass when layered. and at $150 for a bold piece, the price point is made for gals like me who love [but can't generally afford] to layer new jewelry.
i was wowed, inspired and i recommend you, get thee to albertine, for as of now it's the only spot to buy the line.
thank you to my lovely hostesses for a lovely time and an addition to my obsession.
and thank you to ms. turner for continuing to hustle me about town..
