While Vingo says they do get the occasional Tiffany or Rolex piece that is not their main focus. Tammy really is partial to antique jewelry over 100 years old and to modern fashion jewelry of the second half of the 20th century. Her emphasis is on “fun jewelry” as she calls it. Over 25 per cent of their sales are to regular retail customers and they actively buy unusual items from customers but one of
their mainstays is the dealer trade. They have such a wide variety that many dealers buy from them in early buying on Fridays to take to other parts of the country for sale.

It will open with over 400 dealers in place with many northern dealers now set up for the winter season. Early buyers start at 9am Friday December 2 for $25 and the ticket is good for all three days.
