Do you like Jewelry?

If you like jewelry, come check out our display case and see what the new arrivals are.  Our residents regularly clean out their jewelry boxes and drawers.  On any day, there are dozens of new pieces to look and consider.  What might you find?  Pearls, real and faux stone necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings.  The store has it all.  The store has a display counter and associates who will happily let you hold, take a look.  Our volunteers have enjoyed helping shoppers find just the right piece to make an outfit pop for a special occasion, a job interview or even as a gift for a sister.  Come check us out!
