If you are planning to buy jewelry for a millennial this year, they’d better “go vintage”... It’s a huge trend according to National Jeweler. It’s the story behind the bauble that speaks the most to that age group. Millennials want one-of-a-kind pieces that are truly unique, especially for Christmas. Appraiser and Private Collector, Patti Geolat is giving holiday shoppers the opportunity to make a little room in the jewelry box this year. She's also giving shoppers an opportunity to fund their holiday shopping budgets and buy something truly special for everyone on the "nice" lists.....especially if that person is a millennial.
Patti Geolat will be showcasing a wide variety of beautiful baubles from her own private collection at Fast Fix in Northpark Center on December 15th through the 17th. And remember, when you sell at the event you'll have peace of mind knowing your precious heirlooms are going to a no-melt shelter and will be lovingly placed in new homes.
