June 17, 18, 19, 20 (Thursday-Sunday)

8:00 am to 2:00 pm every day

Last year we held our huge Yard Sale, and it was a tremendous success. We don’t know what health recommendations will be required to enter this June, but we believe the ones we followed last year, which we will repeat if necessary, should continue to keep everyone safe.

It is not too early to start cleaning out your closets, cupboards, attics, and garages to select treasures you no longer use or need and set aside for donating to this big 4-day sale.  This frees up room for you and allows continue support for the historical museum.

We truly appreciate what ever you decide to share. Thank you.


We request usable items in good condition, nothing broken or with missing pieces, and clean clothing. Items you might find to donate include kitchen & tableware; bed, bath & table linens & towels; furniture; wearable clothing & shoes; small appliances; books, DVDs, CDs, vinyl records; artwork & frames; décor items; crafts & holiday decorations; children’s toys & games; bicycles & scooters; patio furniture; yard & garden equipment. 

Items we cannot accept include TV’s, computers, monitors, printers, stereo’s, mattresses, bed pillows, baby car seats or strollers, couches, overstuffed chairs, or particle board furniture such as IKEA furniture. We cannot vouch for the condition of some items and some we are not allowed to sell.

We will be open to accept donations at the museum only on the weekends (Saturday-Sunday) on….

May 15-16, 22-23, 29-30, and June 5-6

8:00 am to noon each day.

You will receive an in-kind donation receipt you may use for tax purposes. Arrangements can be made for the week of May 24th to May 28 to have large items like pieces of furniture picked up at your location by calling Dennis Buscher at (916) 479-2158.
