Two Free Tickets to Participating Museums Sept. 24, 2011.

Link to Get 2 Free Museum Tickets

Smithsonian Magazine is sponsoring a FREE Museum Day on Saturday, September 24, 2011. You can get a ticket for 2 to participating museums. We’ve done this for a few years now – you might want to note that some of the more popular museums can become really crowded, so you might want to go earlier in the day to those so you have time to see everything.

Gold Ripoffs In Rome

I had my husband take a gold item in to see what a few local ‘gold’ shops would give for it.

I gave him strict instructions not to sell it unless they offered a fair price, which I gave him.

2 local shops offered  65.00.   That’s about $10/gram for 14k.  That’s a rip off.

I don’t MIND leaving $ for someone else to make, but gold is valued TODAY around 27.40/gram for 14k.  That’s DOWN since last week when it was $29.00.  Ebay scrap dealers will give you MUCH closer to the actual value.

There’s a reason these “Sell Your Gold” places are popping up left and right.  They are robbing people who don’t even know any better.

I have consistently done better selling my gold on eBay, even with their cut.    I’ll save tips for determining a fair price and for how to list gold on eBay safely for another post.
