Antique Jewelry Wholesale




Antique jewelry is typically very valuable, and



purchasing such jewelry costs quite a bit of money.



But then again, it is possible to buy antique jewelry



wholesale as well – if you know where to look.





Most people think that online auctions, such as



eBay is the way to go. While this is true



occasionally, you will usually find that the seller



knows the value of what they are selling, and the



price is quite high. There are other ways to find



antique jewelry at wholesale prices – or below.





Keep an eye on your newspaper for advertised



estate sales and garage sales. Typically, at these



sales, the people holding the sale really don’t know



the value of what they have. You can literally



purchase hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of



antique jewelry for just a few dollars on a typical



Saturday morning.





It is important that you not look too closely at the



jewelry when you are buying it. If the piece is



valuable, you don’t want the seller to know how



valuable it is! It isn’t your fault that they didn’t get it



appraised – as you will as soon as you leave! Keep



a straight face, keep your happiness and joy to



yourself, and pay the fifty cents or two bucks that



they want for the piece, get in your car and head to



a trusted jeweler for an appraisal!





It is possible that the piece isn’t worth anything –



but occasionally, you will stumble across some real



finds! Even if the piece isn’t worth anything, if you



make jewelry, you may be able to disassemble it



for the parts.





Finding antique jewelry wholesale is very exciting.



In fact, spending those Saturday mornings at the



yard sales and estate sales may even become



addicting! Yard sales and estate sales – especially



estate sales where grandchildren are not interested



in their grandma’s old ugly jewelry are the best



sources for antique jewelry at wholesale prices – or



below wholesale prices.





This doesn’t mean that there aren’t some real find



on eBay as well, so don’t discount it. Keep an eye



on the jewelry categories, as well as the antique or



vintage categories. When you do find something



you want to bid on, make sure that the seller has a



good reputation. If the piece is very expensive, use



the escrow service that is recommended by eBay.



Also talk to the seller quite a bit to be sure that you



understand exactly what is being advertised!
