9780061189531: Summer at Tiffany

"Summer at Tiffany" is a memoir of the summer of 1945, when Marjorie Jacobson and her best friend Marty traveled from the University of Iowa to New York City, hoping to land sales jobs. Turned away from the top department stores, they made their way to 57th Street where refusing to be deterred, Marty lead Marjorie into the legendary Tiffany store, and somehow these best friends talked their way into positions as pages-the first women to ever work on the sales floor. Their workdays found the girls dazzled by the likes of honeymooners Judy Garland and Vincent Minnelli, Marlene Dietrich in her USO uniform, and legendary playboy Jimmy Donohue. They delivered and modeled priceless jewels, nearly lost precious pearls, and encountered Old Man Tiffany himself during a rare visit. In between getting lost in Harlem (& rescued by police!), witnessing the Eisenhower Parade, VJ Day in Times Square, and mingling with the Cafe Society-Marjorie Heart fell in love, learned lessons and made decisions that would impact the rest of her life, and leave her nostalgic for that one unforgettable "Summer at Tiffany".
