When she posts a piece, it takes about five minutes to sell.

Jen Marlow doesn’t have a website, but the 25-year-old antique turquoise dealer and jewelry designer is proving it’s possible to run a successful e-commerce operation without one, as Vogue writes. Relying almost exclusively on Instagram to sell her pieces, they’re typically claimed within five minutes of the time she posts them, the article says. With 23,000 people following her brand, Sweet Silver Leaf, it’s easy to see why. Finding the turquoise, however, takes some work, as the article says she spends a great deal of time in a van (which she used to live in) scouring flea markets and estate sales.

Alrighty first batch of stackers available for $55 shipped. SOLD

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
