Spring is gift-giving season. Add weddings, graduations and first communions to your list of birthdays and anniversaries. Looking for inspiration? Bring your broken, never worn jewelry, sterling silver flatware, sterling silver tea sets and sterling silver candlesticks to Cara Reider, owner of Chagrin Falls Gold & Coins, for cash on the spot and ideas for unique gifts.

“People are surprised by what they can get for simple gold chains, class rings, and other things they thought were worthless,” says Cara. “If it’s gold or sterling silver, it’s worth something. Gold and silver prices are high right now. It’s a great time to cash in or find a gift that will really be appreciated.”

We’re all clearing out and finding things we’re not sure have value, but we are sure no one wants them.

“People bring in family heirlooms that no one wants or uses,” says Cara. “Find out what it’s worth. There’s no pressure, the process is simple, and I guarantee the best prices in Ohio.”

Cara sells gold and silver bullion in large and small denominations that make great gifts. Why not give something that will appreciate with time?

She also has unique and vintage jewelry at wholesale prices. And her coin collection is one of the most impressive in the area.

“Coins make great gifts,” says Cara. “I love starting kids on a new hobby.”

Buying, selling or gift giving? Cara has you covered.
