e’ve got a story coming up about what’s “awesome” about being in the retail jewelry business.

Here are five of my favorites, from among 50 you’ll find in print in INSTORE in May, to add a little inspiration to your day. Please feel free to comment — and add what’s on your own list.

1. Making an object someone loves that will outlast you. Every piece is like a bit of immortality.

2. On Christmas morning, hundreds of folks squealing with delight, opening boxes with your name on them.

3. The freedom to be a hopeless romantic.

4. You become a good listener, in and out of your store. You’re really a psychologist without a degree.

5. The privilege of helping people as they celebrate the milestones of their lives.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
