I’m not familiar with how to post on orchid, so I’m giving it my
My name is Cynthia Pennell, my dad was Neill Pennell a.k.a Neil the
Jeweler…some of you may have heard of him, and probably also heard
that he passed away a few months ago. I’m coming to the point with
my dad’s estate where I need to sell the jewelry he had in his store.
I don’t really know how to go about this, and would appriciate any
advice from anyone. I know my dad occasionally attened jewelry shows
in NYC and wasn’t sure if that would be a good thing to attend, or
really what I should do. Where I live there isn’t too much of a
market for jewelry, and there are about a good 5 or 6 jewelers in
the area people can go to who can do repairs if any items break. I
would do ebay but I’m always skeptical with expensive items on ebay,
I’ve gotten taken advantage of a few times.
Anyway, if anyone has any ideas or advice for me as to how I could
find ways to sell the items I would really appreciate it.
Also, if anyone knows anyone (or yourself) who is looking for
showcases for a store front. My father had I think either 7 or 8 show
cases in his store and now I have them sitting in a storage unit.
I have no experience in the jewelry business so I really could use
any advice. Unforunately, as talented as my dad was…he didn’t pass
his talent on to any of his kids.
