Historical Society of Quaker Hill and Pawling
The Historical Society of Quaker Hill and Pawling is pleased to announce our 33rd annual fundraising “Trinkets to Treasures” Tag Sale on the great lawn of the historic John Kane House, located at 126 East Main Street, across the street from the Dutcher Golf Course.
This traditional Tag Sale has become a primary source of income for the Historical Society to cover expenses of its educational school programs, special historic events, new themed displays at the Kane House, as well as for expenses of necessary improvements, repairs, and other maintenance of our three local museums.
The dates and times for the Trinkets to Treasures Tag Sale this year will be July 27 – 29. The hours will be from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; and from 12:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Sunday. We will be renting a much larger tent (30’ x 60’) this year, so everything will be safe from inclement weather, as the Tag Sale will be held “Rain or Shine.”
We are very fortunate to live in and serve a community that strongly supports our outreach and mission through generous donations of items throughout the preparation time for our Tag Sale, which has spanned the past two months of this late spring and early summer. Some very interesting antiques and a great abundance of very gently used fine furniture pieces, some by Broyhill, Hitchcock, and Hunt Country Furniture top the list. Many other items will be available for purchase, including fine china, yard furniture, clocks, jewelry items, electronics, framed art, kitchen utensils, fine rugs/carpets, gift items, workshop tools, beds, lighting fixtures, and garden tools.
The Historical Society Tag Sale Team will continue to gratefully accept donated items at the John Kane House prior to the sale, each Tuesday and Thursday, from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., for sorting, preparing, pricing, repacking and moving into storage. Readers who have questions, or wish to join our team of Tag Sale Volunteers to help before, during, or after the Tag Sale, please call Jill at (845) 337-7194, or John at (845) 447-4169.
