JENNY O. CALLERI talks about the very start of her long career in the jewelry business in the latest episode of The Barb Wire.

The Las Vegas native tells host Barbara Palumbo that growing up in the city can be difficult — especially when she saw her friends getting jobs she felt were cooler than hers. (Her examples of cool jobs for a young adult at the time were “maitre ‘d at Spago, bellman at MGM, valet at the Mirage …”)



This episode is brought to you by INSTORE Bulletins.

Tired of feeling her job was so much duller than those of her friends, Jenny O., with the assistance of a close friend, got a job at a very well-known jewelry store at the Fashion Show Mall.

In this short podcast excerpt above, you’ll learn which jewelry store it was, and find out how this modest first step led to a long industry career that saw Jenny O. eventually purchase Huntington Jewelers, a 70-year-old Las Vegas jewelry store.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
