 FOL Donated Jewelry Sale update--

  • Our most recent Donated Jewelry Sale took place November 2-3 and was another record-breaker! At our sales, we offer everything from fine "estate" jewelry made of gold, silver and precious stones, to collectible vintage pieces by well-known designers, to fun and wacky costume jewelry. Find table after table of wonderful necklaces, earrings, bracelets, men's items and even working watches.  Prices start at just $1!

  • This sale is the FOL's primary fundraiser.  The next one will be April 25-26, 2020, so mark your calendar now and be sure to come and shop for all your gift-giving occasions-- or just treat yourself! 

  • Note: our sale has outgrown the Hickok Room where it has traditionally been held. Look for us near the rotunda on the main floor of the library. Customers at the November sale raved about the new setting-- there was so much more space, light, and most of all, more jewelry!

  • Our gratitude goes out to all the volunteers who work so hard setting up, assisting customers, and packing up; to our shoppers for coming out to the sale; and last but certainly not least, to all who donated jewelry. We could not do this without your generous contributions!

  • Please bring us your bling! We're committed to holding sales regularly, so we accept jewelry donations year 'round. Do you have jewelry you never wear? De-clutter your jewelry box and drop off your unwanted pieces at the library to be included in our next sale. We take just about everything-- women's and men's items, fine estate pieces or costume, modern or vintage! Donate necklaces, bracelets, earrings, watches (both working AND non-working), tie clips, tie tacks, even broken pieces and single earrings-- we'll take it all! Just drop off your jewelry donations at the library Circulation Desk. Tax receipts are available.

  • We'd love to have you help at our sales-- no special invitation or prior experience necessary! You can assist with the pre-sale prep as we sort, tag and price new donations; or with set-up, selling and dismantling the sale; even with publicity, which can mostly be done from home via the internet. Wherever you see yourself, we'd love to have you! Just become a member of the Friends and use the Contact Us page to let us know you'd like to participate!
