Of Gratitude & Grand Openings,
Summertime & Smiles
Hello, and welcome to August!
It’s been a whirlwind of a summer here in Pismo Beach. Visitors have been returning and vacationing on the Central Coast -- maybe including you! There’s a vibrant energy in downtown Pismo, with many families and couples walking, smiling, talking, and enjoying life along the shore.
The shop has been very busy, and I am thankful for that! It seems that our selection of antiques, quality estate and new jewelry -- and of course coins and collectibles -- is resonating with both locals and visitors.
Thank you for visiting! We appreciate you and also you sharing our shop with your friends and family.

Official Ribbon-Cutting and
Grand Opening Ceremony
While it’s true that Pismo Beach Coins Etc. Gallery opened in early 2020, the pandemic changed things. With the stay-at-home orders, it meant no visitors to the shop for several months. While I still did appraisals and bought and sold collectibles, the main retail business had to wait.
So, I’m doubly thrilled to announce that our official ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on August 3!
Alongside my family (my Mom, Fran; sister Karen; daughter Kayla), we welcomed close friends and supporters, as well as members of the Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce to the small private event and official ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Here are a few photos from the event. The smiles say it all.
Opening the shop is a dream come true for me, and it was possible because of the encouragement and help of many people. Thank you!
And thank YOU for your support of my business. Without you, the grand opening would not have been possible. I’m looking forward to many more anniversary celebrations to come!

We Buy Collectibles.
Are You Looking to Sell?
Do you have old, broken, or scrap jewelry?
Or do you have a coin collection that you’re interested in valuing and perhaps selling?
We also buy old coins, tokens, medals, WWII items, slot machines, and vintage toys.
Please contact us for a private appointment to evaluate your items so you can make a no-pressure decision.
As we head into the last weeks of summer, I hope you’ll be spending lots of time outdoors and enjoying the company of family and good friends.
If your travels bring you to Pismo Beach, stop in and say hello!
As you wander around the shop, you may wonder about the stories or history behind a certain piece. Don’t be shy -- ask!
I love sharing the background of items and what makes each one special. I think you’ll soon see why I love this business so much. Behind the scratched face of an old coin or the patina of an antique is a unique human interest story just waiting to be told.
Now a question for you.
What would you like to read in this newsletter? Whether it’s what makes jewelry valuable, why certain coins are collectible, how old something needs to be before it’s called an antique, or any other question, let me know!
Just reply to this email with your question and I’ll cover it in a future issue.
You can also find the store on Google and Google Maps.
While you’re online, I’d sure appreciate your review of my shop and your experience! And please share with your friends – your recommendation is the best way small businesses like mine can grow.
