Alwand Vahan

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009


Where have you guys been?  I guess I’ve been having a great summer and neglecting my post for the blog…I’m slack and proud of it.  Well, well lets see what is new in the “Holland’s neighborhood”.  First of all we have a new addition to the jewelery store, Mrs. Annette Fraga.  She has been with us for about two weeks and we love her already.  Stop by and say “hi” if you’re in the area.  More exciting news!!!  Holland’s is now the exclusive carrier of “Alwand Vahan”….and no that is not some sort of virus.  It is actually a beautiful collection of bracelets, rings and necklaces, that are created in silver and gold, with or without DIAMONDS.  Take your pick.  My wife went crazy for these designs and chose this line out of dozens of potential vendors.   They are fun to wear alone on your wrist or give them some company and stack them all the way to your elbow.  You have GOT to see these bracelets and while you’re at it, go ahead and pick out a few for your Christmas list.  Santa will thank you later.
