New For 2013!
Adding Gently Used Jewelry to be sold by owners
If you would like to clean out your jewelry box and make room for new accessories, you are welcome to attempt being your own jewelry vendor at the Gently Used Dance Shoe Sale. 
In 2012, Leah sold her own jewelry as a trial and had fun doing it.   If you would enjoy preparing for your sale, email Judi.   If there is a large response, we may have to ask you to buddy-up because of space limitations.
