I was at a yard sale with my husband and he brought my attention to this box of costume jewelry and watches. There were so many pieces I decided to offer the owner one price for the box. I asked her how much she wanted and we settled for 35.00. I had a great time looking through it but I only found one piece that I really wanted. I took the whole box to 5th Ave Jewelers and let them make me an offer as I heard that they were the place to sell jewelry. They found four ladies watches that were worth 300.00 for all three. They found a gold and ruby pin that was worth 90.00 and a charm bracelet that was mostly gold that was worth 250.00. That was 460.00 for just those pieces and they were not done. They found another 200.00 in the costume pieces. That was 860.00 for a 35.00 investment. I actually felt so guilty we went back and paid the lady another 250.00. She was floored and we were all happy.
