‘Classy Castoffs’ will benefit WCHS

On Saturday, April 26, garage sale enthusiasts, antiques collectors, and the just-plain-curious will want to be sure to get to Classy Castoffs, a much-better-than-your-average garage sale. Classy Castoffs from Cluttered Closets, Intriguing Items of Indeterminate Origin, No-Longer-Needed Knickknacks and more will be up for sale at the carriage house at the end of the driveway at the Williams Carriage House, 308 Poplar Street in Warren. The sale will begin promptly at 8 a.m.

This year, the donated items, all being sold to benefit the Warren County Historical Society, range from lovely floral wingback chairs to a foosball table, from outdoor and garden accessories to antique double bed head and footboards, a Singer cabinet sewing machine, pottery and ceramics, antique electric insulators, and much, much more.

The sale is organized into “departments” in three garages, a covered patio, and weather permitting, in the parking area at the carriage house. Departments include garden tools and decor, furniture, linens, kitchen items, luggage and handbags, jewelry, lamps, artwork, antique and modern picture frames, hardcover and paperback books, children’s toys and bikes and books, Christmas decor, craft items, an especially-for-men department, office furniture, glassware and barware, authentic Starbrick bricks, and of course, even more. Like any great sale, there is too much to list.

The sale will be held rain, snow or shine. Coffee and brownies will be available by donation. All proceeds will benefit the operations of the Warren County Historical Society. The society operates a headquarters and museum on Fourth Avenue in Warren and also manages the Wilder Museum in Irvine. Both sites offer free admission.
