POTSDAM - Thanks to the generous donations of many friends of the Orchestra of Northern New York, a garage sale too large to fit in a garage will be held at the Pine Street Arena during the Potsdam Summer Festival, 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., Saturday, July 15.
The biggest fundraiser for the orchestra each year, the junque sale this year includes gently-used items such as jewelry, candles, books, toys, small household appliances, dishes, glassware, mugs, cooking utensils, a teapot collection, and lots of knick-knacks. Also for sale are gardening supplies and lawn chairs, fans, office supplies, and Christmas items.
There are several antiques, too, such as steamer trunks, tools, baskets, and a cow horn cutter. No kitchen sink, but windows will be for sale.
Other items include sporting equipment such as tennis rackets, golf clubs, a bicycle, baseball bats, and camping gear. Among the furniture items are tables, chairs, a high chair and a bed frame.
To donate items for the sale, call 315-265-6384 to arrange for drop-off before July 12.
The Orchestra of Northern New York is the only professional, year-round symphony orchestra in the North Country, celebrating its 30th season beginning this October.
