If any person fails to claim any article of jewelry or other article delivered to a jewelry store or television or radio repair store for repair, cleaning, or adjustment, for a period of 6 months after such delivery for a television or radio repair store and 1 year after such delivery for a jewelry store, the store shall have the right to dispose of such jewelry or other article by whatever means it may choose, without incurring liability or responsibility to the owner of such jewelry or other article.  However, before the jewelry store or television or radio repair store may claim the benefits of this section, it shall, at the time of receiving such jewelry or other article, give to the individual delivering such jewelry or other article notice in writing that the jewelry or other article delivered may be disposed of by the jewelry store or television or radio repair store unless the jewelry or other article is reclaimed within the above-stated time periods.  Notice by certified mail shall be given to the person who deposits the jewelry or other article of the intended disposition thereof 15 days prior to said disposition, or such time period that the parties agree to in writing.  Any value of the jewelry or other articles sold or disposed of pursuant to this section which is in excess of the costs and expenses incurred by the store shall be tendered to the person who deposited the article, within 15 days after the sale or other disposition of the article.
