Yves Saint Laurent once described jeans as “the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simple – all I hope for in my clothes.”They are the staple of everyone’s wardrobe. They look good with just about anything.

Your Cash for Gold Locations

In today’s gold market, with the price of bullion soaring to nose bleed heights, you no doubt have been purging your jewelry collection for items you really could do without. You check the Dow and the gold market daily and sort through your dad’s old watches and identification tags or bracelets again. How long has it been since your wife wore her grandmother’s wedding ring or large brooch with broken clasp?

The places to sell are legion. In Texas, for example, gold can be sold while dining on fine sirloin in an A listed restaurant, or at a gold store located inside your supermarket.

Whenever you decide to trade your gold for cash, be wary of the opportunists who have grown in number to rival the growth of gold prices. The old song about gypsies tramps and thieves should be played in every domed flea market and transient hotel ballroom gold buyer’s conclave. It is easy for you to become excited by the number crunching and talk about grams, ounces and karats to end up receiving much less than your gold is worth today.

You should check all of your jewelry and make sure it has no unique value for antique memorabilia or to a collector’s broker that multiplies its value into five figures. You should be aware gold is weighed in karats and know your gold’s karat weight before you enter into the marketplace.

[Image not Mine]

Your gold should be weighed by Troy grams and not “pennyweight,” which is guaranteed to give your buyer more of your gold and you less of his cash.

Exchange credentials with the prospective buyer of your gold. Ask to see his state license to buy and sell gold, and check with Better Business Bureau to nose out any complaints. He should ask to see your identifications such as driver’s license or passport. If none of these happen, run to the exit.

Beware of the razzle dazzle of the entrepreneur who is introduced to town by a barrage of ads claiming to pay highest dollar for your gold, then sets up camp in a local hotel or civic center. Usually these rascals disappear quickly, leaving you with unpaid or underpaid balances.

The most widely spread avenue of hawking for your gold is the send-it-in-the-mail system. This should not be a last resort, but no resort at all. You have no guarantee your weights will be accurate and your payments near what your gold is really worth.

Once you are certain you will sell to one of the cash for gold locations, approach some of your local jewelers and pawn brokers. This is their business and they are happy to give free estimates to local customers.

Just as you would go into any other market place armed with fair market value of what you are either buying or selling, do the same in the gold market. You don’t have to be an expert to gain the most value out of your jewelry pieces. Information is available. Avail yourself of it.

This will allow you to smile all the way to the bank.

What to Buy Nikon D3100 or Samsung Galaxy S4

My husband was a little annoyed with me for talking too much about wanting the new Samsung Galaxy S4 since the new phone was introduced in to the market. He chuckled too sometimes knowing that I can’t get it because I don’t have money for it but I am really serious of having one, I am planning of saving my allowance if I started to get one.

Tonight I asked him which one should I buy if I have money a DSLR Nikon D3100 or Samsung S4? As usual he was annoyed and told me he don’t want to hear me anymore asking the same thing all over again.  I would like to have the Samsung Galaxy because I want to have a phone that I can use anywhere while I want the DSLR so I have a good camera when we travel.

While browsing online I found this cute and stylish shoes, I love this type of shoes. I like to buy a pair for myself but I know there’s no way I can have one. I prefer the black one than the ivory pair because I can wear them from any color of clothes.

Buy Violin Strings Online

As what I have blogged the other day we moved to a new apartment and we are on the 4th floor. It was a nice location and there’s really no disturbances aside from the dog owned by the family next door which barks every time we passed by their door and those little kids running in the hallway every afternoon. I think those kids are student in the music school in this building and during break time they went upstairs to look around but most of the time an adult woman will fetch them and tell them something, probably not to play up floor.

I was curious on how the music school below looks like and I am planning to use the stairs one time so I can see it probably they have violins and violins string set like the pieces from violin strings guitar center.

If you are learning how to play violin you need string sets, if you can’t find them on land based store surely you will find them among online stores.

Shopping at LesMore

The other night we shopped for a pair of shoes that my husband could use while working out in the new gym. The gym has a policy that shoes should be left outside the door and you have to wear different shoes inside the gym. So I took my husband at LesMore because I knew that they have good quality shoes in less prices, I have seen them every time I walk by the shopping center.

The female sales clerk speak English well so it was easy for us to buy what we want, we bought a pair of black converse shoes on cheap price. They have different type of shoes and I am planning to return there to buy my own shoes when I have the money already.
