Passions: Horsing Around

began my equestrian adventure in the Girl Scouts but didn’t realize my passion until adulthood. To celebrate my 40th birthday, two friends and I decided to do an inn-to-inn ride. That was 16 years ago and I haven’t stopped riding since.

I find the focus needed for riding is both different and yet the same as the focus needed for jewelry. Each helps maintain a balance for me. Both engage my mind and heart — it is humbling to be part of my customers’ milestones and equally humbling to be allowed to partner with an independent, intelligent, thinking animal. The trust is unconditional in both directions and horses are incredibly forgiving. Plus riding is a lot cheaper and more effective than therapy!

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
