A girl and a parrot walk into a bar.
Bartender: Nice feathers.
Bird: Feathers. Bwak.
Girl: Her name is Polly.
Bartender: You name your earrings?
Girl: Oh, these? [Tugs on her F. Is for Frank feather-shaped accessories.] Thanks. They’re from Gemma Collection, a new Snider Plaza jewelry shop.
Bartender: They’re fly.
Bird: Bwak. Fly.
Girl: Yeah, I’m still aflutter over the agate necklaces, gold-filled cocktail rings, and simple studs. The owner, a former broker at an investment bank, fits more than 30 lines inside the tiny boutique, including local designers Three Bishops, Taylor Custer, Catherine Page, and Snooty Peacock.
Bird: Peacock. Bwak.
Bartender: Prices make you squawk?
Girl: Nope. Most range $50 to $150, but the best part? Several styles are $45 or less.
Bird: You can say that again!
