A few weeks ago I finally stopped into the new location of Sammy’s Fabulous Jewelry store on Tilton Road in Northfield next to Artistic Hardware. For months I’ve seen the grand opening sign and I finally took the time to check it out. It was fantastic!
Their jewelry selection is unbelievable, the quality is amazing, and it’s all absolutely affordable. Plus they have a unique selection of handbags and the trendiest new accessories including the new faux fur boot covers and colorful warm winter gear. Recently, they added two new components to the mix — one is fresh, homemade, tasty, chocolate-covered treats and the other is the “Lingerie Closet” — a lingerie area with sizes small-to-plus with all of your undergarment needs.
As a thank-you to their customers, Sammy’s is offering a 10-percent discount on any purchase of new items during December and January. Debbie and Maria, the store owners, want to thank all of their loyal customers over the years and are looking forward to “continuously exceeding your expectations.”
Looking for a restaurant gift card for the holidays? Then you have to check out the Grilled Cheese & Crab Cake Co. in Somers Point (off GSP exit 30). My husband said the fried onion grilled cheese done “angry” was his favorite sandwich of the year. I thoroughly enjoyed my fried chicken grilled cheese (minus the ham), and we both loved their old-fashioned cream of tomato soup. Now through the end of December, you can purchase a $25 gift card for just $20.

Some of you know the talented singer Marc Antonelli, who dazzled audiences at the Tropicana last year with his repertoire of opera, pop, and jazz. Now you can download Antonelli’s music on iTunes. Antonelli sings a duet of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” with artist D’London, produced by veteran record producer and recording artist David Longoria.
Antonelli says that his experience performing in Atlantic City has given him a tremendous feel for the emotion of how a song should be performed. “I have poured a lot of emotion into my performances in Atlantic City and was able to use that same energy and emotion in this song as well,” he says.
Aside from his iTunes song, I asked Antonelli about gifts he wanted this year.
Without hesitation he happily replied, “Being with friends and family for the holidays. This is a gift that is truly and forever priceless.” Additionally, Antonelli says he’d enjoy anything from Bath and Body Works (especially since they now have male fragrances) or gift cards to his personal favorite restaurants (a favorite of his to give as well as receive). A fun fact you may not know about Antonelli is his ability to sing in English, Italian, Spanish and French.
Time’s running out for holiday shopping, so make sure to stay safe, shop smart, and help someone in need!
