I saw an interesting news feature the other day talking about how a man in New York City was sweeping the cracks between the sidewalks around jewelery stores. When I first heard this I couldn’t believe this would work but according to this article it has made him $800 in a week.
When I watched the news video on him I noticed that all he does is use a small broom to collect the residue between the sidewalks and than takes the dust home to sift it. He has found rubies, diamonds, gold, platinum, etc. doing this.
I had never thought that this was even possible but this creative unemployed man has made it work for him while continuing to pay his bills. If you get a chance reading the article on this is very interesting and may give you a potential idea to do the same thing near your local jeweler.
