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

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
