San Francisco Pick Up Only

My mom, Pepper Frey, passed at age 89 on 9/25/2016. She LOVED fine jewelry and had a beautiful collection, including antique heirlooms that were all STOLEN from a safe that was inadvertently left open in their new home in Florida while the home was being built in the 1990's. She was absolutely devastated but soothed her sorrow by creating a new collection of gems (boy, she loved to work with jewelers!). I never shared that passion with her, but we DID share a passion for dogs! She caught the beginning of my shelter dog grooming obsession and was thrilled. She knew I loved the beauty of her jewelry, but was more inclined toward a bohemian/rock n' roll aesthetic. I couldn't think of a better way to honor her memory than to auction her jewelry to Muttville. She would be tickled pink.
