View Full Version : Retired jewelry

Hi Silpada Sisters!

Do you wear your favorite retired pieces? My retired jewelry are some of my most treasured pieces and I always seem to want to wear them, like my flower engraved cuff bracelet B1475 and tear drop shaped hammered Sterling Silver disk N1181 retired from the 2007-2008 line. I get comments on them ALL the time and hate to say they are retired but I can't seem to put them away!!! ;)

Yes, I wear my retired pieces.....I know some reps who won't wear anything they can't sell.

Surely they could be more creative and simply tell the interested person that they have many pieces that are similar or even better than the retired piece they are wearing. What is the point of buying the jewelry if you are not going to wear it? Retired or not. Why not respond with: "Oh, I love this necklace too but unfortunately it has been retired. Why don't you let me show the one that took its place, it is just as beautiful! I would love to share the new pieces with you that are in our new catalog that just debuted. Are you free Tues or Wed this week?: etc etc etc It's not rocket science!

SLGirl ... That's exactly what I say!!! I think that my favorites are such eye catchers and they are going to get people asking about them...maybe, just maybe I will use them as a booking bribe...lol...but most likely not! :D

That could definitely work if they just had to have that particular style!

Hi everyone!

I have purchased all of the retired jewerly my Silpada Rep had that I wanted. There are still other pieces I am interested in getting that she didn't have. Does anyone know if there are Silpada reps in the Northern VA area who are having open house sales on retired pieces right now?
