Be Jeweled Still Seeking Donations
Be Jeweled, the annual upcycled jewelry sale benefiting Food Share of Lincoln County is fast approaching. February 8th marks the seventh year of this remarkable, unique sale which will be held at the Newport Shilo Inns and Suites.
Once again, the Be Jeweled committee has been hard at work for months collecting jewelry and sorting what comes in. All kinds of jewelry are accepted, including beads, watches, jewelry components, and even broken pieces. The actual sale is divided into areas, featuring vintage, artisan, fine, ethnic, beads, and more. It is a perfect opportunity to acquire jewelry without spending a lot of money.
Donations are still needed. This is the perfect time of the year to go through your jewelry box, closets, or cedar chest to find a new home for the jewelry you no longer need or wear. You are helping a wonderful cause at the same time. Your donation of a bracelet, necklace, or ring can help feed a family for a week. The entire county benefits from the work done by Food Share of Lincoln County.
Donation sites throughout the county are: Food Share of Lincoln County (535 NE 1st St, Newport), Diamonds by the Sea, Nye Cottage Beads, Newport 60+ Activity Center, all County Chambers of Commerce, all branches of both Oregon Coast Bank and Columbia Bank, Hair Love, and the Lincoln City Cultural Center Gift Shop.
