Dec. 20th Dione Kenyon, President & CEO of The Jeweler’s Board of Trade discussed the state of our industry as well as taught us the ins-and-outs of extending credit, using consignment and memo agreements, protecting ourselves from customers’ bankruptcies and much more. This is the kind of financial information the “big guys” seem to get but the smaller entrepreneur tends to shy away from. But ignorance is not bliss when it comes to your money and your consignment goods.

Oct. 18th I’ll was on with Meeling Wong, owner of Meeling Wong & Assoc., a behind-the-scenes power who helped catapult brands like David Yurman and John Hardy to the top of the heap. Meeling is expert at working with the BIG stores, in particular, department stores. And she was gracious enough to willingly share her “secrets” with us.

Sept. 20th I spoke with Joanne Teichman, owner of the amazing Dallas store Ylang23. Joanne sells an awful lot of designer jewelry. She is a keen trend tracker, and her store is one that everyone wants to be in. I’ll ask her the questions you want to ask, like ‘ How does she choose the designers that she chooses?’ and ‘How does someone get on that list? ” and lots more. Designers got to ask questions, too — we don’t want to miss anything.
