estate sales and garage sales. Typically, at these

sales, the people holding the sale really don’t know

the value of what they have. You can literally

purchase hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of

antique jewelry for just a few dollars on a typical

Saturday morning.

It is important that you not look too closely at the

jewelry when you are buying it. If the piece is

valuable, you don’t want the seller to know how

valuable it is! It isn’t your fault that they didn’t get it

appraised – as you will as soon as you leave! Keep

a straight face, keep your happiness and joy to

yourself, and pay the fifty cents or two bucks that

they want for the piece, get in your car and head to

a trusted jeweler for an appraisal!

It is possible that the piece isn’t worth anything –

but occasionally, you will stumble across some real

finds! Even if the piece isn’t worth anything, if you

make jewelry, you may be able to disassemble it

for the parts.

Finding antique jewelry wholesale is very exciting.

In fact, spending those Saturday mornings at the

yard sales and estate sales may even become

addicting! Yard sales and estate sales – especially

estate sales where grandchildren are not interested

in their grandma’s old ugly jewelry are the best

sources for antique jewelry at wholesale prices – or

below wholesale prices.

This doesn’t mean that there aren’t some real find

on eBay as well, so don’t discount it. Keep an eye

on the jewelry categories, as well as the antique or

vintage categories. When you do find something

you want to bid on, make sure that the seller has a

good reputation. If the piece is very expensive, use

the escrow service that is recommended by eBay.

Also talk to the seller quite a bit to be sure that you

understand exactly what is being advertised!
