Get free personalized tips and advice from the company’s team of artisans
GREENSBORO, N.C., February 24, 2014 – Does the thought of throwing out a beloved family heirloom break your heart? Find out if there’s new life for damaged pieces from the restoration experts at Replacements, Ltd. The world’s largest retailer of old and new china, crystal, silver and collectibles is giving you the chance to sit down one-on-one with the company’s talented artisans at the Crystal & Silver Repair Clinic March 14-15, 2014.
“For so many of us, the sentimental value attached to our crystal and silver is far greater than the cost of buying a new piece,” says Replacements’ Product Marketing Manager Keith Winkler. “We hear from so many people who don’t realize many forms of damage can be repaired, which is why we want to give the public this opportunity to meet individually with our artisans. These experts will examine and evaluate damaged pieces then offer repair options and estimates; to give you an idea of pricing, some basic crystal repairs can be as inexpensive as ten dollars.”
The most common forms of crystal repair include grinding down small chips on the rim or base of glasses and reapplying worn gold or platinum trim. Frequent silver repairs involve disposal damage, dent removal, replating and blade replacement on knives.
The Crystal & Silver Repair Clinic will be held 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the company’s retail store, located just off I-40/I-85 (exit 132) at 1089 Knox Road, McLeansville, N.C. No appointment is necessary. For more information, contact Replacements at 336-697-3000, ext. 2233.
