Default Two more gold

Have made friends with a lady that owns a thrift shop. I help her with the jewelry, so she sends me home last Friday with this mess of jewelry to sort it. So I do, takes a few hours. So I end up with 4 pcs. of gold. 2 pictured are the ones I like. So I take it all back and tell her I am interested in those two. Ask how much and she says $10.00. I am like are you sure? She tells me because I am honest and did all the sorting that's the price. I also traded her a sterling for sterling. She buys a lot of storage units and finds all kinds of stuff.....

Sorting a big mess of jewelry is fun, if there are some goodies in there. You sure got some goodies!
