Party of Gold Secures Oklahoma Pawnbroker License

National In-Home Party Company Provides Oklahoma Residents With Cash for Gold

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - With gold prices at an all-time high, residents across the U.S., including Oklahoma, are seeking to sell old, unwanted gold jewelry for cash to take advantage of the metal's high value. Party of Gold, a Massachusetts-based woman-owned and women-run in-home party business, announced the acquisition of a pawnbroker license in the state of Oklahoma. Required by the Department of Consumer Credit due to the increase in the price of gold according to Oklahoma Administrative Code: Title 160, Chapters 1,3,5,15, Party of Gold can now continue to offer gold selling services to residents. Party of Gold is registered in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.

"We've seen a huge increase in interest in selling unwanted gold jewelry in Oklahoma, and since the price of gold continues to go up, we've had a spike in the number of the parties we host in the state," said Lisa Rosenthal, founder and president, Party of Gold. "We look forward to continuing to provide fun and money-generating opportunities for women to gather with their friends and earn cash from unwanted gold jewelry across the U.S."

Party of Gold specialists in Oklahoma have received increased requests for parties in recent weeks as the price of gold has gone up. Shelly Collins, a Party of Gold specialist in Oklahoma, is now hosting parties six days a week. A home-schooling mother of five children, Collins initially became a specialist to help support her family when her husband was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and cancer two years ago. The renewed interest in selling gold jewelry in Oklahoma has filled her schedule; she is currently booked through September. She has purchased anywhere from $400 - $15,000 for guests' unwanted jewelry.
