Estate Assistance Call

I received a call last week from a gentleman who had recently lost his wife.  He needed help with all of the items they had accumulated over the years so I went for a visit and I'm so happy that I did....this 72 year old man had such a great sense of humor.  He had reached a point in his life where he was accepting of his situation.  What more can we do?  Life keeps flowing, stuff changes, people change.  And I know the whole time his wife was looking down and laughing with us. 

Costume Jewelry Cleaning

Did you know that most costume jewelry cannot be cleaned the same way as fine jewelry?  Most rhinestones have a foil backing that can easily be ruined when it gets wet.  The best and easiest way is to use rubbing alcohol and a cue tip carefully on all exposed surfaces but not too much so that it runs down the sides under the stones.  There you go!

Thanksgiving Wishes

Hope all have a Happy Thanksgiving!  Hopefully the weather will hold up wherever you are.  Holiday shopping is just around the corner.  Don't forget you can cash in on any old jewelry in good or broken condition to help with all that gift giving!

Architectural Pieces

I've bringing in some very unique architectural pieces if you have an interest.  Love the old worn look, the apparent age and use....

End of Summer

Looking forward to the holiday season, things are picking up in sales here as the summer winds down!
