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

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
