Come anytime between 4:00PM and 7:00PM

Lynn Armstrong, owner of Gold West Vintage will be there to weigh your items.  Lynn has appeared on NBC and Oprah networks for her gold parties.  Lynn's company  is a local business and held an event several years ago for Image for Success that was a HUGE success raising over $3,500.  

Bring gold or silver items that you wish to sell (examples below).  

You will receive the NY Stock Exchange value (on that given day) for your gold and silver.  A check will be given to you for your items that day, minus the percent you may wish to donate.  A suggested donation to Bloom is 10% of your proceeds, however there is no requirement.  In addition, Gold West Vintage will donate to Bloom 15% of the total amount of gold and silver purchased that night.

While you wait for your items to be appraised, the retail store is yours to explore!
