Last week I had a gold party at my cookie shop.  About 2 dozen people showed up with their baggies of tangled gold chains, lonely earrings that didn’t have a partner, and out of style pieces.  A local jeweler, Blue Heron Jewelry, set up their tools of the trade and weighed and valued everyone’s gold and gems.  Everyone went home a bit richer and laughter permeated the air as we sipped delicious wine from Victor Alexander Winery and nibbled on cookies.  The best part of the evening, though, was that our local charitiable organization Helpline House walked away with $255 in donations of cash and gold sale proceeds.  That will buy a lot of food for their pantry and help those on Bainbridge Island that are having a hard time in this economy.  Thanks to everyone that participated and were so generous.  Paying it forward is a good thing.

My Kids’ Cookies is hosting a party on May 12 to support Helpline House – a local agency that offers an umbrella of social services to Bainbridge Island residents.

We’re offering free wine (compliments of Victor Alexander Winery) and cookies (compliments of us).  A wonderful local jeweler, Blue Heron Jewelry, will be on hand to buy your old gold jewelry.  They’ll weigh and value your old gold and gems and write you a check that night.  And we’re hoping that those attending the event will donate a portion of their ‘gold windfall’ to Helpline House.
