You are full of goo information, especially what you have posted below the video. Thank you for that.
I think you would improve your views and Subscribers if you were a little ..... errrr ........ a lot less INTENSE. It is somewhat off putting.
Keep up the good work. Don’t let the comments hurt you, rather, allow them to motivate you to the next level. You already have nearly 500,000 views on this video alone! You’re doing something right, eh?
Sterling silver items have basically zero resale value other than melt. The market for it used to be the greedy and scroogy baby boomers who love shiny stuff and would collect it to show off and not even to use. They are dying and their stuff flood ebay and consignment stores.
I go to consignment shops and get very lucky finding jewelry they didn't know what they are silver earrings, rings, bracelets they don't know or don't care what they are really worth. $3 here $5 there feels good to get a great deal. So consignment / second hand shops for the way to go.
I went to a local rummage sale and started sorting through the jewelry bins, everything was marked 25 cents a piece! I found 14k gold hoop earrings, 2 14 karat Gold crosses, a 12 karat gold ring, and sterling silver hoops and chains! I literally walked out after paying 2 dollars, lol they didn’t even check if it was real or not, and I didn’t tell them!
This is partly why I stopped "junking." "Junking" is what my friends and I used to call going to the thrift shops, rummage sales, swap meets and yard sales. When you find something you know is sterling silver and the seller doesn't know, you are lying to them when you ask "How much?" and the seller replies, "Uh, I dunno. Two dollars?" As soon as you hand that person the money, you have lied lied lied. It takes a certain kind of person to take advantage of people in this way. I didn't feel guilty when the item was at a thrift store or even a rummage sale, but when you're face to face with the actual "owner" of the item at a yard sale or swap meet and you're not letting on that the item is much more valuable than that owner thinks it is------you may be getting some big bargain, but . . . you are a liar.
I found a heavy silver tarnished tray that has grape vines and leaves all over it but I cannot find any markings at all but it is tarnished like silver gets after sitting for a while, If I were to take a picture and send it to you would you mind giving yourr opinion about weather it is real or not?
