Afghan Hands is a nonprofit organization that teaches skills to help Afghan widows gain independence, literacy and livable wages. These women learn to create embroidered shawls and scarves while also attending classes. For most of these women, this is the only way they are educated.INSTORE Gabriel2From left: Claire Danes, Matin Maulawizada of Afghan Hands and Cynthia Nixon

Wilkerson Testimonials

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
