Feeling like it’s time to clean your drawers and make room to bring in a fresh spring? Nelson’s Grans to Grans have a new home for those nice accessories you just never wear anymore.

They’re looking for gently used jewelry and fashion accessories for this year’s Spring Bling event happening the second Saturday in April.

Because people attending last year had so much fun, they are running the Spring Bling again this year, but need community contributions to make it a go.

Until March 15, drop off your fashion accessories knowing they will find a happy new home. At the same time you are helping raise funds for a great cause 100 per cent will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign.

Contributions can include gently used: fine jewelry, costume jewelry, handbags, belts, hats and scarves. In addition new fabric, yarn and supplies for felting and jewelry making.

This is a spring event, so winter hats and scarves aren’t being accepted.

The drop-off location is SK Electronics, 902 Front St., at the corner of Front and Cedar. There’s free parking at front. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
