We have a watch guy and now I think it’s fair to say we have a pearl guy! We were in the market and a Chinese man came up to David being very friendly and David was trying to ignore him. But I said, “Hon, he looks very familiar…he knows you!” Turns out he is the guy we buy pearls from here in Shenyang and we were actually headed to his booth that very moment.
It’s exactly 3 weeks today until we fly home and time to get some pearls. My Mama had a special request. A strand of pearls designed to her specifics…color, style, length…So, we had a little chat with our pearl guy, looked at some pearls and as we waited he made the necklace we wanted. He has such a skill at this. He knows his pearls, how to create nice pieces and is an EXCELLENT salesman 🙂 Haha, He likes to show me his really nice stuff. And just like our frequent visits to see our watch guy, it’s hard to come away from seeing the pearl guy without a new piece to add to my collection!
I guess beautiful affordable pearls is just another perk to living in China!
