True Tales: Dreams Fulfilled

BY THE INSTORE TEAM

Published in the April 2013 issue.

Two things — both happening within 15 minutes of each other:

1A customer came in who had been dreaming about a silver ring for quite a while. Unfortunately, it was vintage, one-of-a-kind and sold. She decided to consider a pair of earrings and said that she would come back in. She came back later that day, and behind her walking in was the person who had purchased the ring several months before. I said, “And here is the person who bought the ring!” This person, who was wearing it, asked the woman why she liked it so much and she answered that it was a special gift for her mom. The person who bought it offered it for sale and accepted the offer the other provided. All left very happy.

2About 15 minutes later, another client, whom I had not seen in 10 years, came in and said that the ring she had purchased from me and returned 10 years ago had been in her dreams for the last several months. It was a platinum, star sapphire and diamond Edwardian ring. She came in on a lark to see if I still had it. Oddly, the person who had purchased the ring for his fiancée a while ago, had recently brought back the ring to trade for another. The person who had been dreaming about it wrote a check immediately and left the store elated. A very strange day indeed! — Donna Soodalter- Toman, DIVA (Donna’s Infinite Variety of Adornments), Newtonville, MA

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
