I have had some memorable moments in Palm Beach over the years. The first time I was there was just as Maximal Art was getting hot in the 1980’s. We were selling at a shop called Point of View on Royal Poinciana Way, and Madame Alexander (of the dolls) was one of our best customers!  I was interviewed for a local radio show that broadcast live from the legendary Brazilian Court Hotel. I’m pretty sure there were cocktails involved…The dreamy Brazilian Court… The Glam Pad: Weekend Daytrip to Palm Beach

The dreamy Brazilian Court

Over the years what keeps bringing me back is a combination of the manicured beauty outdoors, the swanky aura of the past, and the undeniably chic, fun, and slightly kitch vibe of the present.  Oh, and did I mention the weather, at least ‘in season’? As I write this, it is snowing in Philadelphia. Let’s get away and meet up at Café Europa for a cocktail in Palm Beach!

This book just came out and is on my wishlist
