Rebranded and Refreshed Jewelry Camp Returns to Newark Museum

It opens with a reception on July 26.




(PRESS RELEASE) The Antique Jewelry & Art Conference (Jewelry Camp), the leading resource for antique and estate jewelry learning, brings together jewelry professionals and collectors for in-depth learning and networking opportunities July 26-27, 2019, at the Newark Museum in Newark, NJ.

Jewelry Camp is more than a conference, more than a learning experience – it’s where the jewelry community converges to discover, share and grow together. The antique, estate and vintage jewelry world is about more than commerce and shiny objects – it’s also about the community behind it – online and offline. Jewelry Camp is now reimagined to stay current with the times, but more importantly, to be useful to its community.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
