Sure wish this was MY store. LOL! However, this is a picture of one of the gold jewelry stores in the Souk at Dubai Gold Market. Yeah, they're the ones who are thinking about defaulting on their loans to European Banks that sent everything into a tail spin Thanksgiving weekend.
Gold closed the weekend at $1161.40 after reaching a high in the neighborhood of $1225. Didn't have time to look today as we were in Colo. Springs helping GPOC set up for the mineral show this weekend at the Phil Long Ford Expo. I'll get back to you next week.
We had forgotten how hard it is to photograph gold really well. We took literally hundreds of pictures of gold to put up for sale on the website and only got two to come out good enough to use. We will try again this week. You will find one new piece up on the store and a couple more pendants for your Christmas lists.
GPOC was greeted with frozen sand and frozen buckets when they gathered to set up for the weekend earlier today. Hopefully all will be thawed out by tomorrow for opening. See you all in the funny papers, and from Hooked on Gold, may your Holidays be filled with Joy, Laughter and Good Cheer. Remember to be kind to one another and hold your family dear.
Good Prospecting to You,
