Tiffany & co. opened in 1837 as a "stationery and fancy goods emporium", and initially sold a wide variety of stationery items. the Store operated as Tiffany, Young and Ellis in lower Manhattan.
The name was shortened to Tiffany & Co. in 1853 when Charles Tiffany took control, and the firm's emphasis on jewelry was established.

Tiffany & Co. has since opened stores in major cities all over the world.

Have you ever heard of the books called, "Uncle John's Bathroon Readers?" They have everything and Humphrey Bogart was a spotlight chapter in one I was thumbing through recently.

I'm kinda scared of all the odd things rolling around in my head. That piece of info is the one that probably blocks me from remembering my Mom's phone number.
