Hi Lyndy, wonderful facts and trivia tribute to Farrah Fawcett. I was looking for some updated facts on Farrah and found your blog on Google. Exceptional Farrah collection and photographs too. I went to your Ebay site (very Cool Collectibles) and was wondering if you will be selling any of Farrah's designer jewelry from her HSN/HSC collection, I think it was HSN.

I'll check back, Julie

Hi Julie, thank you so much for your kind comments. Yes, on Farrah's designer jewelry. I'll be adding a gorgeous ring to the eBay store this week & weeks to follow many more beautiful Farrah vintage collectibles...

By the way you are correct, it was HSN (Home Shopping Network). During the early 1990s, Farrah was the trailblazer for celebrities selling their designer lines of jewelry on TV.

Here's one more fact I'll add to my Farrah post: On a Florida Promotional Newswire, Home Shopping Network, Inc. HSN announced on September 20, 1989 that it will offer television viewers a touch of Hollywood sparkle when entertainer Farrah Fawcett co-hosts Home Shopping Club shows to introduce her jewelry collection. Ms. Fawcett will appear Saturday, October 7, 1989 on HSN.

Cosmic Blessings,
Lyndy
