When one of my sugar daddies took me on a trip overseas, I was overjoyed that he was to take me watch shopping—oh boy! Besides the shoe, handbag, and jewelry fetish I have, watches have been making their way into my heart as well. So when I was prompted to choose any watch I wanted, I couldn’t think fast enough of which one I desired. To make a long story short, he purchased a watch for me for $5600. That was a little over a year ago, and although I wear the watch regularly, I don’t see that sugar daddy anymore, and I have other watches that are almost as nice that I don’t have to be as careful with. Also, in my frenzy to pick the watch of my dreams, I chose something that in hindsight was trendier than classic, making it seem a little obsolete in the long-term. Ever since I stopped seeing that SD, I’ve thought about selling the watch more than a few times.
Speaking of selling or getting rid of gifts from old lovers, I saw an auction on TV last night where this woman wanted to sell this 238 carat blue sapphire that was given to her by an ex-lover at the request of her new boyfriend. The money from the sapphire would fund a vacation for the new boyfriend and her, kinda crappy if you ask me, on national television and all. So I’m sure you’re dying to know how much money you can fetch with a 238 carat sapphire, aren’t you? Not much it turns out. It sold for a measly $2800.00! Have fun on you vacay, beatch! Her and her new boyfriend’s smug looks on their faces were shitty to boot, it’s none of his business whether or not she should keep a piece of jewelry, in my opinion.
Okay, so back to the question of selling or getting rid of a gift from an ex-lover or sugar-daddy… Well, I have a girlfriend in the same boat, her SD bought her this amazing necklace, they don’t talk anymore, she needs the money, does she keep it or try to sell? She’s trying to sell… On a side-note, my new lover has never inquired about where my things come from, I think he knows better, and he probably knows I wouldn’t tell him anyway!
I tried listing my watch on eBay for a while to no avail, turns out that my watch is one of the more “copied” ones out there, making buyers leery to purchase from me, and eager to buy a “copy” at a fifth of the price! Jeez, good going you watch copying people, making it hard for me to sell mine, pfft!
On my lunch break yesterday, I stopped in at this local watch liquidator slash jeweler’s place. I brought my beautiful watch piece in and sat down to speak with their buyer. I gave him the authenticating paperwork and told him I was interested in selling it, he told me about the counterfeits and why it was hard to sell that particular watch… Then he asked me how much I wanted for ir—the dreaded pawn question… how much do I want for it, how should I know, I didn’t pay for the damn thing!
I left $1500 in cash, richer than I was 30 min prior, not bad for a lunch break I must say… Eh, easy come, easy go, right?
