Interesting, how much do you save compared to retail?I've been going to the intergem show for about 20 years. You can find everything and the prices are pretty good.
Dude thanks for the heads up!greasy The jewelry store in Naperville that my sister's wedding ring came from is closing because the owners want to retire. She said they were running some aggressive sales to clear out inventory. I think it was called The Diamond Gallery of Naperville in the same shopping center off Rt 59 as Buy Buy Baby.
well retail has a 500% to 1500% markup, this show has a lot of original makers so the prices can be so low you might second guess yourself. my sister is a jeweler and my mom took me to these shows for years so you get used to how much the general public is ripped off. couple that with the fast that a lot of the vendors there will haggle a bit on price to cut a sale.Interesting, how much do you save compared to retail?
Think about how many years (sometimes more than a decade) people go before buying a replacement mattress. You'd have a hard time staying in business if you had the typical slim margins most retail industries function in.I'm not sure I understand why there is such a large mark-up on mattresses. I feel like that industry must do some price setting to keep the prices so high.
