Bayou Gold Opens in Central

By  | 

By Mia Freneaux

    Bayou Gold, just opened last week, is part of a local chain of 7 stores.  Owned and operated by Brooke Barnett and Michael Montgomery, Bayou Gold buys all precious metals- gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, in whatever form they might come.

    Using state certified scales, they weigh your coins, jewelry, bullion, foreign coins or even scrap and pay cash on the spot based on that day’s gold rate.  Customer safety is their priority, so every Bayou Gold is equipped with security cameras and buzzer entry, along with private offices for transactions.  All of their purchases are reported to the local police department.  They work closely with law enforcement, and recently helped to recover $105,000 worth of stolen jewelry and return it to its rightful owner.  According to Brooke, “We are here to help the community.”  In addition, Bayou Gold does I Phone and I Pod touch repair in as little as 5 minutes.   Welcome to Central!

    I am all for local business, as it is truly the most important part of a real economy. I must say, that ANYONE who is SELLING precious metals in this economy, to make a few worthless FRNs (Federal Reserve Notes) is not paying attention and should be considered borderline insane. I am sure there are many different opinions on this, but holding on to such items is more important since the economy is still in a tailspin and the value of precious metals shows no sign of slowing in appreciation. Especially hold on to silver, scrap or otherwise. Most people are not aware of its true value! It was used by settlers moving across this country to purify water in barrels (algae cannot grow in the presence of silver). And it can be used to cure wounds( look up these claims for yourself). There are however, two things that may potentially more valuable than gold or silver in a few years, and those things are seeds and food of any kind. Yes, things are heading in that direction. Who ever heard of a “jobless recovery”? How can national unemployment gain 450,000 new claims last month, (50,000 more than expected) and think we are coming out of this mess? Anyone hear that only 47% of working age adults have jobs? Open your eyes folks, we are no more immune to any of this than any other area. Ignoring a potential problem does NOT make it go away, it only makes things worse.
