Did I really just do this?

My elderly mother wanted to trade in some of her gold jewelry so she could have some much needed cash. I went to at least ten different jewelers and 'gold buyers' in the area. I couldn't believe how little they wanted to give her for her valuables.

I was about to say 'forget it' and then I was driving home the other day and noticed this new place in New Hartford called "A buyer of Gold & Silver. I was ready for another low offer but he offered WAY more than anyone else. I still didn't sell it because I felt her jewelry was more valuable to her so I ended up loaning her the money for now, but I couldn't believe what a great place this was.

I've never even heard of this store before but apparently they just recently opened. If you're looking for an honest place to turn in your old unwanted gold, this is the place to go for sure. Don't even bother with pawn shops and other gold places around here.

Other places would probably have taken advantage of my mother because she's elderly but not here, so I would suggest to your loved ones that "A buyer of Gold and Silver" would be their best bet if they wanted to deal with someone honest and fair.

You r either advertising for your gold buying business or if your story is true, then you loaned your mother the money instead of letting her sell it because you want it for yourself when she croaks. Either way you $uck!!

They could tone down the color of the store. It makes the building look like crap. Doesnt do a thing for the place, unless they are going for a Utica style.

I'm a regular visitor of Greg's business and have been for many years. He's a stand up guy and supports his church and community like no other.

He's not the 'pawn store' type person. He's an honest man that's quite frankly a brilliant entrepreneur with a God-given gift. I have no doubt that anyone who visited this store would give it good reviews because the truth is, he offers more money than any of these other pawn places for your unwanted gold jewelry.

It's really nice to see him open another fine location where he can serve God and the communities around here as well. He's already got one of the area's most established, credible, honest, and intelligent individuals working for him and helping his business grow. This is what God blesses us with when we do what's right.

If you end up coming to A Buyer of Gold & Silver with something you're looking to trade in for cash, I wouldn't be surprised if you found yourself blessed as well.

That was written like the phoney Facebook copy and pastes. I almost want to check snopes.
