The above pictures depict the experience of trading at a ‘cash for gold joint. I have had a pair of earrings collecting dust on my shelf and knew it was time to find a new home for them. As I continue on this past of minimalism, I recognize more and more how insignificant ‘things’ are to my true values. Was happy that Carter could find a use in melting these (what turned out to be silver in gold platting :)) earrings. They were worth a mere bus ride into the city, but conversation with owner was priceless and wow now I know why iphone thieves are rampant. Those gold chips are indeed worth a penny, but never worth compromising your integrity.
