Click for availability and more information Summer at Tiffany, by Marjorie Hart

Summer at Tiffany, by Marjorie Hart is a delectable account about how two girls from the University of Iowa find jobs as pages at Tiffany & Company. Set in 1945, the books chronicles how Marjorie Jacobson and her best friend, Marty Garrett became the first women ever to work on the sales floor of the world-famous landmark. Not only were they blinded by the magnificent jewels, they were also caught up in the celebrity clientele, World War II, and all of the excitement of what New York City had to offer. While all of their friends envied them, Marjorie and Marty had to scrape by on a monthly budget of $65 per month while surrounded by opulent wealth. The book is a sensational journey through a fairy-tale summer that provided two young women with many life lessons, and memories for a lifetime.
