Oregon Coast Jewelry Event One of a Kind
(Newport, Oregon) - The third annual “Be Jeweled” - a vintage, collectible and costume jewelry sale - will be held this year at the Newport Recreation Center, Saturday, January 30, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Past participants describe Be Jeweled as the “ultimate in recycled jewelry sales.” With thousands of donated items, the eclectic bling includes vintage pendants of pearl and turquoise, gem stone necklace, sterling silver bracelets, jade pendants, lead crystal earrings and 14 kt. gold chains.
This year, Be Jeweled, a benefit for Food Share of Lincoln County, is presented by the News Times.
Based on a similar event on the East Coast, it's a one-of-a-kind sale in Oregon.
“There's treasures here for everyone from casual costume to fine jewelry,” said Linda Neigebauer of Nye Cottage Beads. “You can't beat the prices. Many items are between $1 and $25.” Donations are still coming in to Nye Cottage Beads where jewelry from community donations have been sorted and collected all year.
As added bonuses, all shoppers will receive Be Jeweled Coupon sheets (merchant coupon/discounts). Out-of-the-area and local patrons alike will have a chance to enjoy free or discounted items including restaurants, merchandise and lodging.
A half price sale on many items will take place at noon.
