Dear all on Orchiddo not delete till you read this!!!!
Look at your gold prices, they are now at $718.00+, your silver
prices now at $14.80+ the roof of the house is gone. What does that
say to your skill fees, restructure your bench costs. NOW!
Why just charge what YOU all were charging back when it was $400.00
per ounce. I telephone lectured a person on Orchid last night, that
person saw my point of view. What stock you still have in your
display tables are now old fashioned and antiquated. Even if you
still keep them at those low levels. Wake up!!!! The suppliers will
be now increasing them, as the gold value goes out of sight. Which it
is!!! I am not asking you all to do this, I am just pleading with you
to look at reality, gold solder, gas consumption, findings, gold
parts to make your business flourish, don't be worried for your
increase. Do you think you should be concerned for charging a few
dollars more. The retailers will be doing it, so should you.
I write and read articles on another website in America. Some guys
are melting down their stock or re-structuring their whole inventory.
If the stock is over one year old, scrap it, send it to a refiner,
you'll be making more money that way, trust me. Even my good friend
on Orchid David Geller is re-writing his Pricing Book. Use his ideas
and his book as a guide. I make no commission on his sales, but he is
the 'best'. Even beading stock in Toronto made from some very great
artisans are now charging OVER $500.00 per item. Please read our
in the Fashion page of the "Toronto Star".
Sorry for my letter like this, its your money and I do care for you
all on Orchid. This place is my second home..:>)
