From the aspens turning the mountainside a shimmery gold, to the oversized sweaters you get to wear to the punkin’ patch, there is so much to love about fall in New Mexico. But what makes October one of the most highly anticipated months of the year isn’t our world class corn mazes, it’s the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta that is one of the most widely photographed events in the world due to its sheer visual magnificence.
Living here it’s difficult to escape the excitement that comes with an event in which for nine days hundreds of colorful hot air balloons take to the sky in a mass ascension – breathtaking. But not as breathtaking as the experience of actually boarding a floating aircraft propelled into the sky by nothing but hot air. Envision a 360 degree birds-eye view of rivers, mountains, and mesa, all hued in the vibrant pallet of autumn.
The thrilling feeling of freedom that comes with ballooning and how it manages to make a kid out of us all is what has inspired this week’s Up, Up & Away Clearance. If we can’t share with you the thrill of being airborne under a multi-colored balloon, well maybe we can give you a thrill of another kind – snagging a good deal on the classic jewelry you love! After all, it has all the bold, colorful, free-spiritedness of a balloon, and we have all the confidence in the world that wearing it will literally make you feel like you’re floating on air.
Think we’re stretching the imagination? Maybe, but with this year’s Balloon Fiesta theme telling us to “Inflate your Imagination,” we kind of think its apropos. But if you still don’t believe us, take a look at the multitude of statement pieces we have decided to retire and gift you with at clearance pricing. Like ballooning, it’s our New Mexico heritage at it’s finest. But, unlike a balloon, once they’re gone, they’re gone. https://www.carolynpollack.com/americanwest/category/Catalog-American-West-Jewelry-Clearance
