If you’re doing a Marie Kondo-inspired purge of your jewelry this spring, the Burnaby Gogos will be happy to take it off your hands.
The Gogos are accepting donations for their Spring Bling sale, coming Saturday, May 4 to the Greentree Village Community Centre, 4295 Garden Grove Dr.
From gold to silver to costume jewelry, including vintage, the group will be selling necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets, brooches and rings of all shapes and sizes, handmade and manufactured. All donated pieces will be cleaned and ready to wear or give as gifts – whether for Mother’s Day, birthdays, graduation, Christmas or children’s dress-up collections.
Artists and craftspeople may also be interested in checking out the sale to find items that are suitable for taking apart to create new jewelry and sculptural pieces.
The group is accepting jewelry donations until April 15 and will arrange pickup if needed. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Joan at 604-430-3444.
For buyers, admission to the sale will be $1, and all items will be priced to sell.
Proceeds go to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which supports African grandmothers who are caring for children orphaned by AIDS. (“Gogo” is the Zulu word for grandmother.)
