Glacier Grannies host sale

The Glacier Grannies are hosting for the third year the popular Kazuri Jewelry and Craft Sale this Sunday at d'Esterre House in Comox.

The Glacier Grannies are hosting for the third year the popular Kazuri Jewelry and Craft Sale this Sunday at d’Esterre House in  Comox between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.

This wonderful jewelry is made in Kenya on part of the Karen Blixen estate of Out of Africa fame. There are necklaces long and short, bracelets and earrings. The price range of this jewelry is $15 to $48.

These handmaid double-glazed ceramic beads are made in an array of colours and shapes with artistic flair. The women making this jewelry are paid a fair wage and by buying it we support them and the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

The Stephen Lewis Foundation works with grassroots organizations turning the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa. Since 2003 we have funded over 700 initiatives, partnering with over 300 community-based organizations in 15 countries.

Forty-one per cent of every dollar spent buying Kazuri jewelry goes to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

Crafts made by the Glacier Grannies including AIDS Angels will also be sold on Sunday. After making your purchases stay for refreshments including tea, coffee and a choice of homemade pies.
