In recent weeks J. Austin & Co has seen an uptick in gold and silver purchases. There is a slight squeeze in the market right now as demand is outweighing supply. Bitcoin buying and selling remains unchanged at this time. The Diamond market is starting to cool due to the increased popularity of lab-created stones. Those holding larger diamonds may wish to exit the market at this time.
We have also seen a remarkable increase in larger estate transactions to the extent we have had to continually reduce our store hours in order to process the goods during these times of heavy market volatility. Such will be the case next week. The Grants Pass shop will be closed Sept 12th through the 14th to open again on Tuesday the September 18th. The Ashland shop will maintain normal hours during this time.
