You decide if it’s weird or brilliant.

Kyra Brooks, a former nurse who’s now a stay-at-home mom, tells Fox 4 News that when she was breastfeeding her daughter she “wanted a tangible way to capture this bond that I had with her.” That ambition eventually gave rise to a thriving enterprise in which people mail her their breast milk that Brooks uses to make beads for necklaces, charm bracelets, pearls, rings and earrings. Her Facebook page now has more than 18,000 likes, and she also has a nifty website with a peculiar URL. “Some people thought it was weird, some people thought it was the best idea ever,” she says.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
