Clean out your jewelry boxes!

The price of gold is up now. I needed a watch battery, so took the opportunity to clean out my jewelry box. I had a broken gold necklace, a few mismatched earrings and an anniversary ring from my first hubby. I took them all to the jeweler and walked out with $300! For stuff I didn't wear that was just languishing in my jewelry box.

So if you have some broken or mismatched gold jewelry, it is a great way to make a little extra cash!

I'm sure I have nothing since I don't wear jewelry. But my Mom does and I have a key to her house.
Thanks for the idea!

Jeepers! What do they pay for broken plastic stuff?

Mark, do NOT clean out your mom's jewelry box...... unless she asks you to.

Frances said...

McVal, alas, plastic does not have the same value. Or I could be rich!
