Some stores would just never send their jewellery to a P.O. Box
number. It would be better if you just give them an address to send
it to…then say it’s at suite number ?
Get your items insured and covered by “Jewellers Mutual”. If some
gem stones get broken, it would be your worth while to have a basic
supply on hand, just in case. I even had a small range of diamonds
also “just in case”…things can and will happen ! I had about 8
carats of diamonds and over 2,000 synthetic cz’s and genuine stones
just for this “just in case situation”. Its kind of rough to be
caught on the weekend with no supplier at hand.
I would refer to the pricing structure book written by Americas
ultra-famous “David Geller”. This book alone is like a bible to many
stores and workshops.
Do not go cheap just to get a client. If you do, you’ll never be
able to raise your prices afterwards.
Hope this works for you. In this economy I wish you tunz
of luck and admiration.
