‘Treasure’ swap on Saturday, Mid-East expert on Sunday

Reader Kerry Romano Zall figures one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so she’s holding a treasure swap on Saturday. Plan ahead for her next event in January!

Kerry’s treasure swap party works like this:

“You submit a ‘wish list’ of treasures you are seeking, and I will combine everyone’s lists together. I will post this list on my blog for everyone who would like to join us.”

So the idea is, you go on the blog and see someone’s looking for a slow-cooker, and you dig yours out of the garage. You want to find an electric drill, and you send that as part of your “wish list.”

Swapping starts begins at 8 a.m. sharp Saturday, Oct. 2, at Kerry’s place at 19227 Windmill Lane; that’s off McCourtney Road in the Clear Creek School area.

Bring your swappable items – up to 10 – and bring photos of larger items you’d like to get rid of. Folks meet and start swapping.

“A garage sale will follow at 9 a.m. Whatever we do not swap by 9 a.m., you can stay and sell your items at the garage sale,” Kerry writes. “Whatever items are left from the garage sale can either get picked up or we can donate.”

Emily Blanck of the American Israeli Political Action Committee will visit Grass Valley from San Francisco to discuss the situation in the Middle East.

The discussion will be at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 3, at the Nevada County Jewish Community Center, 506 Walsh St. in Grass Valley. It’s open to all.

Works donated by more than 30 western Nevada County artists will be auctioned to support the Nevada County Food Bank.

Bidding starts Monday, Oct. 4, and ends at 12 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27. You can see the works at Summer Thymes Bakery and Deli, 421 Colfax Ave., Grass Valley.

The Grass Valley Quakers are holding this fundraiser to benefit the Nevada County Food Bank, and all proceeds go directly to that wonderful community service that is needed now more than ever.
