Only Daddy’s Little Girl Could Get Away With This

When my daughter and I brought Pearl home from The Humane Society, we were in the store for about 10 minutes and she said, “Look, Dad!” I turned around and she had a strand of pearls around Pearl’s neck. I said they were cute. Where did you get them from? “Out of the pearl case,” she said. Only a daughter could get away with that. — Thomas Thobe, Pyramid Studios, Ellsworth, ME

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
