Bit By The Berkshire Hathaway Bug

If you like investing, enjoy the wit and wisdom of two sage old men, and plan your spring travel around spending the first weekend in May in Omaha, then you’ve probably been bit by the Berkshire bug! It’s our favorite bug, and the symptoms usually start to strengthen today – the day Warren Buffett releases his annual letter to shareholders.

The letter details what’s happening in all of Berkshire Hathaway’s many businesses. And our favorite part – it talks about what’s coming up at this year’s annual meeting!

Borsheims is privileged to host two events exclusively for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders. Here’s what Mr. Buffett says about the Borsheims events in his annual letter:

At Borsheims, we will again have two shareholder-only events. The first will be a cocktail reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 4th. The second, the main gala, will be held on Sunday, May 6th, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Saturday, we will remain open until 6 p.m. Remember, the more you buy, the more you save (or so my daughter tells me when we visit the store).

We will have huge crowds at Borsheims throughout the weekend. For your convenience, therefore, shareholder prices will be available from Monday, April 30th through Saturday, May 12th. During that period, please identify yourself as a shareholder either by presenting your meeting credential or a brokerage statement showing you own our stock.

Our team at Borsheims is busy getting ready for all the fun. Hosting 35,000+ shareholders every year is wonderful but requires a lot of planning and preparation!

One thing we do have ready to go is our Berkshire Hathaway memorabilia – and we have some really great products to commemorate this year’s annual meeting.

One of my personal favorites is this Warren’s Lump of Gold (soap)! How fun is this!?! It smells great, feels silky and smooth, and is a really fun way to remember your weekend with the Oracle of Omaha.

For those shareholders who are really into investing and looking sharp, these bull and bear cufflinks will be the perfect memento. They have BRK engraved on the back closure.

In our experience, anything featuring Warren Buffett’s signature is a top seller during Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend. That’s why one of our favorite pearl companies, TARA & Sons, created this special pearl set. The cultured pearl strand has Mr. Buffett’s signature engraved on the clasp and comes with a set of cultured pearl studs.

These are just a few of our Berkshire products. You can browse the entire collection here. And know that each of our memorabilia items is priced for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders. It’s a great product at an incredible value – just what Berkies love!
