Our Yard Sale Needs Your Stuff


Saturday October 13 and Sunday October 14

We’re hosting a Yard Sale on Saturday October 13 and Sunday October 14 from 9 am to 6 pm at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center!

Last year, with the help of members and volunteers we raised $3,000 from the sale that helped support programs for people of all ages.  We need your help to make it a success again this year and remember all of the items you donate to our sale are tax deductible.

We’re looking for good stuff – nothing broken or in poor condition.  Here is a list of potential items we are looking for:
  • Antiques – Furniture, mechanical devices in working condition – no piles of rust
  • Books – Old and rare only. No modern hardbacks or paperbacks
  • China/ceramics/porcelain - Higher-end sets preferred

  • Lamps – Tiffany-style, banquet lamps, floor lamps, desk lamps
  • Militaria – Civil War stuff is very hot
