Huge Vintage & Costume Jewelry Sale!
St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care Inc. – First-ever Vintage & Costume Jewelry Sale at our Bucyrus Campus! If you like (or never had the chance to attend) our vintage jewelry collection sales at our Stein Campus, you won't want to miss this huge sale at our new Bucyrus Campus, 2450 W. North Ave. It will feature our popular, wide-ranging vintage jewelry collection -- which includes pieces of all types and styles, from heirloom vintage to trendy contemporary to funky costume jewelry. And it's all at prices beloved by fashionistas on a budget. How? These pieces are donated all year long. Dedicated volunteers sort them, polish them up, make any needed repairs, card and price them and then sell them. Nothing is wasted -- even jewelry pieces beyond salvage for wearing are sold in bulk to recycle into art or craft projects. All proceeds from the sale benefit the clients served by the nonprofit center, from the very young to the frail elderly to adults with disabilities and those with Alzheimer's.
