Instead of writing about what something is worth today, we are going to take this opportunity to invite you to meet us in person at the Tampa Bay Times Women’s Expo – which will feature exhibits, seminars and education on a wide range of women’s interests (not the least of which include jewelry and fine art). Taking place on Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Florida State Fairgrounds in the Entertainment Hall, we are the major sponsor of the event. Plus, admission is free!We will be at our booth in the center of the Entertainment Hall from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. I will be speaking about valuation at 2 p.m. on the main stage.Feel free to bring smaller items with you or photos of larger items (that you don’t need returned), and we will be happy to evaluate them for you. Katrina and I, and senior vice president and fellow gemological expert Dan Buerk, will be on hand to give you what we call in the trade a "quick and dirty" valuation of your items. Katrina will also have some gemological equipment on hand. The Fairgrounds are located at 4800 US 301. Stop by our booth next Saturday – we would love to meet you – and remember: we are always buying.We are active, internationally known buyers of fine jade, fine gemstones and fine watches. You’ve seen us in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes Magazine and the New York Times.
