A lady approached me at the farmer's market on Saturday and asked if I would consider trading some earrings for some old silver jewelry she had. She was going to bring it to a consignment shop but they told her she'd have to polish it first. Then she thought about how long it might sit there before it sold. So, we made a trade. She was happy to have new earrings for herself and her daughter and I was happy to get her old stuff to remake into new. In my book that's a good deal and everybody is happy.
