I can see by the search words that a lot of you are trying to get information for the upcoming 40th Anniversary Henri David Ball in Philadelphia.
I took a walk down to Henri’s Jewelery Store aptly named Halloween over at 1329 Pine Street. I had never been there, and was really blown away by the collection of bling on the walls, in cases, hanging from trees, the ceiling just about anywhere.

At 3PM on a Wednesday business was booming, otherwise I would have asked to take a photo of the store, so instead I just asked his partner his partner Paul Struck.The largest Halloween party in the city of Philadelphia! Join in the Halloween costume party. Costume contest begins at the stroke of midnight.
