The Anza Valley Artists held a successful rummage sale fundraiser at the Anza Swap Meet held outside of the Community Hall Saturday. April 1.

AVA President Rosie Grindle, members Donna and Carl Gage, Merrie Kraatz and Susan Gonzales doted on shoppers and provided wonderful deals on the donated items. From Christmas decorations, figurines, jewelry, boots and utensils to lamps, collectibles, art paints and so much more, they had something for everyone.

“I found some stuff I didn’t know I needed and am very pleased,” said Cheryl Scheftner, as she toted away her “new” southwestern style lamp and an armful of other decorative things.

Anza resident Johnathan Schmidt found a ceramic cow horn that was just the perfect finishing touch for his office. Treasures were to be had, and at very reasonable prices.

Donna Gage organized and coordinated the event. All the Anza Valley Artists wish to thank all those that bought and donated goods. The money raised will help the AVA present art shows and to promote the arts in the community. Leftover sale items were graciously donated the thrift store.

The next AVA art show is scheduled for June 10, at the Community Hall in Anza. To join the club, contact Rosie Grindle at (951) 928-1248. For more information, please visit www.facebook.com/AnzaValleyArtists/.
