Cara Reider, owner of Chagrin Falls Gold & Coins, loves to sell the jewelry, coins and other items in her shop. But, lucky for you, she really loves to buy.

“I buy unwanted or broken gold jewelry, coins, sterling silver flatware, sterling candlesticks, even gold teeth fillings,” says Cara. “And, right now, it all may be worth more than ever before.”

The process is simple. Bring your items to Cara, she’ll determine their worth, make you an offer that you can accept or decline, and you leave with your cash. And Cara offers the best prices in Ohio—guaranteed.

“A woman came in today with a small sterling silver serving piece and I offered her $140,” says Cara. “She was excited to accept and said she was offered $130 from another shop and even less from an antique store. Another happy customer.”

“With coins, people assume that age equals value,” says Cara. “There are several things that go into the value of a coin. Age, mint mark, low mintage and other factors all determine a coin’s value. Bring it all in and let’s have some fun.”

Chagrin Falls Gold and Coins is located at 8535 East Washington St. in Bainbridge, on the corner of East Washington and Rt. 306, just across from Dunkin’ Donuts.
