Megan Marie Anstedt
Pike County Collectibles
Pittsfield, Illinois. USA

Pike County Collectibles is a family owned and operated business
that my Father has spent several years building from the ground up.
Over the years I have worked there on an as needed basis for short
periods of time until around 4 months ago. Business starting picking
up as we prepared to move to a much larger (and nicer) location. We
are a collectibles store, therefore we have much, much more than
just jewelry. However it was decided that the entire jewelry
department was my main responsibility! I have gone into this with
some prior knowledge of jewelry and have already learned so much in
the last 4 months, I am no where near as knowledgeable I want to be!
When I discovered this website I was absolutely thrilled! I am
looking forward to meeting new, interesting people and learning as
much as my brain can handle! One of my goals is to eventually be
able to help others on the forum later down the line! Even though I
have several others as well, my biggest goal is to truly be as close
to “the jewelry expert” that they call me at the store as I can
possibly be :slight_smile:
