Geez. What your bringing to the forefront is the difference between someone who recognizes quality and someone who just looks at the surface of things. A diamond looks like a shiny clear rock to some and that person can never imagine that a diamond could be worth milions. I was in Russia years ago and saw some beautiful laquered boxes that went for several hundred dollars. The boxes were beautiful but I didn't buy one. I got back home and saw the same boxes in a specialty shop for $1200. I didn't realize the value when I saw it. And I don't think you realize the value of what you saw. I've actually known Jeff for years, as a customer, and I frequently by quartz crystal pieces from him, He always has excellent prices and I've been a satisfied customer. Many think what I pay for these pieces is ridiculous... but they don't understand the value of collector quality items. You may have been put off by a salesman's (or it may have been Jeff) encouraging a customer to buy. I don't have a problem with that. "I want to sell something today" doesn't bother me, because I know how to say, "no, thank you" and then I appreciate a person who wants to do business. Not every store is for everybody, but whenever I have dinner with new friends in the Delray Beach area, I ALWAYS bring them to Jeff's shop. Why? He's got fabulous items.
