Grand Opening of St Augustine Gallery to honor the Legacy of a Mum

“Unique. Unusual. Beautiful. It’s everything you are and we are at The Golden Gypsy” said Jason Relph. The Golden Gypsy features an eclectic collection of local & international gifts, boho clothing, stealing silver jewelry and esoteric art. “The focus is on sustainable, repurposed and recycled materials when seeking the unique pieces for the gallery. We are a family established venture and understand the importance, heartache and gifts that family ventures afford, so we like to showcase work produced by individuals and families who create from the heart,”

The Golden Gypsy’s Grand Opening is being held between 7:30pm – 9:30pm on the 27th of November, 2019 on what would have been Wendy’s 80th Birthday! The Relphs are a renowned mother and son team well-established in St. Augustine with Crucial Coffee and The Gourmet Hut in the original blacksmith and harness shops adjacent to Fort Castillo de San Marcos. The Golden Gypsy structure is a 100 year old home and a 3,500-square-foot, two-story commercial business location which has been transformed into an exotic, experiential shopping experience, with venetian plastered walls, repurposed wood from a Buddhist temple, and a real life-size teak canoe inspired by the floating markets of Thailand and spice markets of Istanbul.

Wendy died at home, with Jason at her side, the age of 79 years old on October 17th, 2019. To honor Wendy’s style and aesthetic anyone adorned in gold, black, leopard print or faux fur will receive a $50 gift bag at the grand opening along with refreshments, live musical entertainment and a free metaphysical service.

Sunset and S’mores Benefit

What could be a more fun and casual way to spend a late afternoon Saturday than watching the sunset from the banks of Moultrie Creek, taking photos, making S’mores, and nibbling at a buffet, while meeting people interested in supporting the city’s award-winning St. Augustine Orchestra? Cowan Financial Group is hosting this event at the home of Cary and Judi Cowan. There’ll be a sunset selfie set-up, buffet, bizarre bazaar, interactions with some of the musicians and their instruments along with a cash bar of wine, beer or a ‘Cowan Cocktail’,. After the sun sets, guests will roast S’mores in one of the firepits while enjoying the twilight hour.
