Warren Buffett’s Annual Letter Coming Saturday

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Clear your calendar. Block off your Saturday. Get your reading glasses cleaned and at-the-ready.

Saturday morning, our esteemed Chairman Warren Buffett is expected to release his annual letter to shareholders. It’s full of details on how Berkshire Hathaway is performing, a general outlook on the world, funny anecdotes and one-liners, and information about this year’s Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend.

In advance of the letter, Berkshire Hathaway already released a little news about the weekend, and it’s big news for our friends in Kansas City and Dallas.

For the first time, Nebraska Furniture Mart will offer the Berkshire Hathaway discounts at ALL their locations – not just the Omaha store.

The meeting will also be live streamed once again, allowing shareholders and non shareholders around the world to get a taste of the meeting.

But we all know that there is no substitute for being in Omaha and experiencing Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend firsthand. So book that trip and get ready. May 6th is approaching quickly.

Peek Into Borsheims Gift Gallery

Saturday, April 30th, 2016

Not only does Borsheims bring in incredible jewelry and watches for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend, but we also make sure our gift gallery is stocked with great items.

We have several new vendors you might notice when visiting the gift gallery this weekend. Here are a few highlights:

The wood items are from GG Collection – and are called “contemporary European decor” for the kitchen.

I love this zebra laundry basket – especially for a child’s room. And if you’re from out-of-town, we know how to ship!

We’ve carried Kosta Boda for years, but I’ve never seen lipstick decor quite this large.

Simon Pearce is another favorite vendor. These vases and bowls are incredible pieces of art.

IMG_0731 These quartz votive holders are from Kathryn McCoy. We have them in a wide variety of sizes.

Simon Pearce has a really updated look this year, bringing in the crystalline look.

Don’t forget those amazing Swarovski crystal encrusted animals we talked about the other day, either!

Come in to get a full view of what all we have in store. It’s a packed gift gallery for Berkshire weekend!

What’s the Most Expensive Piece at Borsheims This Year?

Friday, April 29th, 2016

The question I get asked the most each year (other than where to find the restrooms) is what is the most expensive item at Borsheims.

Here is this year’s winner…

Yellow Diamond

It’s a 56.10 carat fancy intense yellow diamond.

Want to take it home? We’d love to have a shareholder buy it! Retail price is more than $6 million, but a Berkshire Hathaway shareholder can take it home for $4.6 million.

There’s an App for This, BRKers!

Friday, April 29th, 2016

 

Our friend Brent Truell has updated his Berkshire Hathaway shareholder weekend app for this year’s meeting! It’s always so handy to be able to carry around an app that has all the weekend’s official information at the touch of your fingers.

It’s called the BRK Annual Meeting Guide – search for it under Berkshire Hathaway in the app store.

BRK Weekend App

 

During my time on the shareholder information desk outside Borsheims, I reference it all day long! We quickly run out of the hard copies of the visitor’s guides – and many people don’t want to carry a visitor’s guide around all weekend anyway.

And bonus! Brent made a fun Berkshire Hathaway game, too

Buy Borsheims Jewelry at the CenturyLink Center Today, Tomorrow

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Along with the other Berkshire Hathaway companies, Borsheims assembles a great little pop-up-shop at the CenturyLink Center during the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting.

This year, the Borsheims booth has a new and improved layout, which should help the line move even more quickly.

As for jewelry, we have the same favorites (diamond studs, engagement rings, pearl necklaces, sterling silver earrings, and bracelets) and a few fun new items.

The biggest sellers might be these BRK necklaces in yellow gold or white gold – available in both necklace and bracelet form. They’re each $775.75.

These Swarovski Bella studs always sell out quickly – and they’re a great price at $55.

We have diamond studs in a broad range of prices and sizes.

Watches and cufflinks might appeal more to the men.

Animals You Can Wear at Borsheims

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Earlier this week, we talked about the lions, tigers, and rhinos at Borsheims that will greet Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.

They’re more of the set-on-a-shelf-and-admire sort of animals.

If you’re more into wearable animals, do we have some options for you!

Lions, Tigers, Rhinos at Borsheims for Berkshire Weekend

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

We know that Berkshire Hathaway weekend can turn into a zoo at Borsheims, but this may be the first time we’ve had lions, tigers, and a rhinoceros in the store! No worries, though – these animals are only for admiration – not fear.

Each animal from Clarita Brinkerhoff has around 32,000 Swarovski crystals and is around 16 inches long, including the granite base. They retail for $10,000 each (although I’m sure there’s a discount for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.)
