So I was in TJ Maxx looking for a shirt for my son. I always wander by the jewelry case and low and behold-AMAZING! Everything in the case was Indy designers! I've been working for a specialty Indy Designer boutique and I found so many pieces by some of the same artists we carry. I recently mentioned Bot-Ami this amazing Isreali Artist (we sell her pieces for 3 and 4 hundred each, I got one there for 60.) I know now what cost is and that the general mark-up for big box stores is about 300-700% depending on the item and ours ranges from 300-900% (yes we buy some things for 140 and mark them to 1300-and they sell all day long- heck we buy pendants for 1.00 and sell them for 65. on a 1.00 chain) but anyhow, the point is-check out TJ Maxx!!! No bull, the manager told me that their corporate main buyer buys out stores like the one I work for and was at one time an Indy designer herself. They had amazing pearls, bracelets and a whole men's case that my husband even liked (and he isn't the jewelry type of guy). They had Movado watches for 2, 3 and 4 hundred and I could have spent a fortune just in the one store. Check it out if you have one near you!
