True Tales: Seeing Stars

Strange stories from the front lines

?One day, a good customer came in and wanted to talk to us about doing a custom design. She and I sat down at the design table across from each other and began to discuss details. Throughout the course of the conversation, she tells me (and by now my husband, who has squatted down beside the table) that she recently had some tattoos done. OK. Nothing scary about this so far …. She slightly pulls back the edge of her collar to show us this tiny little star. As she had had radiation treatment for cancer, she decided to have stars put where the scars were. Next thing I know, she’s lifted up her shirt to expose large breasts (with many stars). It was comical as they were right in my husband’s face when she did that! Talk about a deer-in-the-headlights look! Not bad enough? In walks a customer at that moment. ?Hey! I’ve got a pair of those!’ she says.?

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.”
