Jewelry Table

This year the jewelry table will offer an ‘All NEW’ selection — nothing left over from prior years! BUT it is up to us to dig into that collection of forgotten and unloved gems and accessories (purses, silk and silk-like scarves) to make this work. We will treat your valuables with respect making sure they are carefully valued to bring the best price. You can drop off your items each Sunday. Jane will also receive things at the office when she is there. We encourage early drop offs to lessen the build up of donations at the last minute. Ask your sisters, mothers, friends, and neighbors for their long neglected jewels and invite them to refresh their own collections by coming to the sale. The following are team members this year: Lynne Yansen, Deb Lapides, Carolyn Fleiss, Lee Brami, Trelawney Goodell, Linda Coyne, Meg Newhouse, and Edie Ruquist.

Plants Plants Plants

Take advantage of the upcoming spring weather to get out in your garden and thin those innocent-looking shoots that have multiplied beyond their limits. Pot them up for Mayfair! We need plants! Any questions, check with Lydia D’Andrea or Jim Jones.
