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.?

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
