The Sierra College Patrons, a support group of the Sierra College Foundation, invite the public and those interested in becoming members of the organization to attend their April 3 meeting which will feature an exploration of antiques and vintage goods. Two local experts will present information, answer questions and offer opinions on a variety of items including porcelain, glass, jewelry, photographs, and all things vintage.

Betty Gadberry, a long-time antique dealer in the Auburn area and Sandy Bryan, owner of Tumbleweeds Vintage Shop in Roseville and proprietor of The Olive and the Rose, a presenter of Vintage shows throughout the area, will give a presentation to members and guests helping to clarify what makes something an antique and what delineates Vintage. Meeting attendees are invited to bring favorite items from their collections for evaluation by our two guest "experts". Evaluations are not intended to be formal appraisals and no value will be attached or implied to any item. This is intended to be a fun exchange of information.

Sierra College Patrons Spring Fundraiser, The Vintage Marketplace will feature more than 30 vendors of antique, vintage, and vintage inspired items. The Marketplace will be held on Saturday, June 10 on the campus of Sierra College. Furniture, jewelry, garden accents, glassware and ephemera will be on sale. Hours are 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Admission is $5.00. In addition to the goods on sale, Cousins Lobster Rolls, Chandos Tacos, Cowtown Creamery and An Honest Pie will park their catering trucks on campus offering delicious food when you need a break from shopping!

The Patrons meeting will be held on Monday, April 3 from 12:30–2:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room at the student center. Lunch, which is optional, will be served at 12:30 p.m. The cost of the lunch is $11 and requires an RSVP. Please call Joan Edwards at 916-663-3408 by March 29th.
