Where to donate jewelry?

tangle of random jewelryRebecca emails:

Starting the spring purge and wondering if anyone could suggest a place to donate jewelry? It's not fancy jewelry (or anything gold or silver that could be sold) nor is it vintage costume jewelry..just trendy inexpensive stuff that looks nice. I'd hate to just toss it out if there's some place that would accept it.

We're guessing a lot of the places that clothing for re-sale, like the thrift shops, would be interested in jewelry donations.

Got a suggestion for Rebecca? Please share!

Great Finds is a very nice "thrift boutique" (260 Washington Ave, Albany) that would love that kind of jewelry. This women's thrift shop supports Equinox programs and provides vocational training for clients who work in the store.

From their website: Donations may be dropped off at the store Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Wednesday 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. GreatFinds also participates in 1st Friday Albany and will open from 12:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. the first Friday of every month.

Thanks chrisck..sounds like the perfect drop off place.

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
