Support Grace:

This is a unique event .

Everyone has old, broken or unwanted jewelry, coins or silverware.

If you sell these items you will get a fraction of their value.  By selling these items for their gold and silver content, you can then donate the     proceeds from the appraisal to the church.  You will receive a tax receipt that will be worth more to you than selling the items yourself.

You can chose to donate all, some or none of your proceeds to Grace.

How it Works:

  1. Gather up your broken or unwanted gold and silver items
  2. Bring your items to the church on the appropriate dates
  3. Your items will be evaluated based on their gold and silver content only
  4. These items will be sold by the appraiser, and you can then choose to donate some or all of the sale to the church and you will receive a receipt for the value of your  donation to the church

 Grace United Church will receive the money and your  donation will be reflected on your 2024 tax receipt.

What your items might be worth:

10k 20 gram broken chain 549.00
10 silver dollars 145.00

14k 7 gram wedding band

18 pieces of sterling flatware 410.00
