True Tales: The Sinking of the Cleavage

Published

on

One of our salespeople came to my wife Linda saying she needed help with a client. She simply could not convince the client that her pearl necklace, which we had just restrung, was the same length it used to be. She was a nicely dressed, attractive, middle-aged woman. She was not being unpleasant, but she was absolutely sure something was wrong. My wife quickly learned that the client was sure her pearls were shorter because she remembered distinctly that when she first got the pearls, they came to the top of her cleavage. Linda thought for a moment and asked, “And how long ago was that?” The woman thought for a second, and then said “Oh, my God, you’re right!” And they both had a good laugh.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
