Everett Public Libraries Present: The Great Everett Jewelry Exchange

Do you have a stash of unwanted jewelry in your bedside table or in your old jewelry box? Have you been inspired by Spring weather to clean up and clean out? Remember, your trash is someone else’s treasure. Get ready to declutter and discover treasures at the first-ever Great Everett Jewelry Exchange hosted by the Everett Public Libraries!

While the event won’t occur until Saturday, April 27th, donations are now open. For every two items of unwanted costume jewelry that attendees bring to the Parlin and Shute Libraries, they will receive a ticket for the event. For each ticket, attendees may choose one piece of jewelry.

Ticket holders may attend the Exchange “pre show” from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon on April 27th. From 12 pm to 2 pm, all are invited to join. Attendees without tickets may purchase items with cash from 12 pm to closing at 2:00 pm.

“I’ve begun my clean out,” says Kathleen Slipp, the Adult Services Librarian at the Parlin Memorial Library. “I’ve donated necklaces I no longer wear, earrings that have lost their charm, and items from the what-was-I-thinking!?! stash in the back of the drawer. In addition to those items, any jewelry from broaches to hat pins and toe rings will be gratefully accepted.”

She adds, “with Mother’s Day and Prom fast approaching, this event provides the perfect opportunity to find unique, one of a kind items.”

Please call the Parlin Library, (617) 394 2300, or Shute Library, (617) 394 2308 with any questions. Start cleaning up and clearing out!
