Spring rolls around like clockwork every year. And every spring, I can count on seeing clients who have gone on vacation to sunny destinations and brought back jeweled baubles from their trip. Their stories are unique, but the theme is the same – “Boy, did I get taken…did I pay too much?”
It takes me back to a three-part series of articles I wrote last year titled, “Going on a Tropical Vacation? Why You Should Bring Home T-Shirts, Not Jewelry.” Here are links to Part I, Part II, and Part III. These three stories are worth reading, especially if you plan to travel to the tropics.
So far, those clients that have sought an appraisal for their vacation purchases have been disproportionately disappointed with their purchase. Most feel like they did not get a good value for the money spent. And when you’re spending thousands of dollars, that’s the last thing you want to feel.
If you’re headed on a tropical vacation soon, my advice – pick up some T-shirts!
