My Oak Armoire

This is Christy Cannistra, Account Executive at Mele & Co. and this is “My Story.” My first jewelry box was given to me by my older sister Gina. I was in high school and for Christmas she bought me a beautiful oak jewelry armoire. Gina is six years older than me, I have forever looked up to her, and she has always taken care of her little sister. I still have the armoire; today it is filled with tons of jewelry and trinkets I hold dear to me like a jeweled turtle broach I kept with me as good luck before any dance performance, my grandmother’s jewelry, pictures of prayer cards with St. Anthony, and even a ticket stub dated April 2000 from my first date with my husband.
