..... headline should have been TIFFANY'S SALES UP 4%, outlook is
Ditto! This year has been my best year, and Christmas, in several
years. 18 months ago, we changed from a very busy one man/ one wife
shop to a 4 person shop that is busier now than ever. Keep in mind,
my shop is located in one of those supposedly ‘dying’ rustbelt towns
of America. But believe me, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Make yourself different from the others in your area.Watch and
jewelry repair is a great way to do that, and it leads the way for
most people who walk in my door the 1st time, but sales of finished
goods as well as a pretty consistent flow of mountings, light custom,
etc… has continued to grow thru out this year. Purchasing scrap has
been real good all year, too.
So far, I 'll have to say I need more data - alot more data, before
I’ll be convinced by the mainstream media about how bad it is
