Barns Hosts County-wide Estate Sale

The Barns of Rose Hill Estate Sale offers a great twist on a classic idea with their sale in their Lower Gallery March 21–22. It’s an estate sale involving the entire county. Clarke County households are purging items like Bavarian Crystal and a pair of Chinese Chippendale end tables—even an original Czech nude oil painting. You can purge, come in and buy, or both.

This special fundraising event will help keep programming prices reasonable and accessible to the community. The operating costs of the Barns exceeds the income from the programming every year. Fundraisers are a big part of how the Barns continue to thrive. This estate and “attic art and fine furnishings” sale is a great way to help.

Want to make a little extra cash for the up coming summer months? This sale is a way sell your unique treasures. If you have a piece that you know is great, but just don’t have the space to keep it, now is the time to sell it. A staff of volunteers will help you price your item—they will even carry large ones for you. Forty percent of the sales proceeds goes to the Barns, and 60 percent to the consignee. If you want to donate something and be done, the staff will happily write you a receipt for tax purposes.

For all you pickers and savvy shoppers here is an exciting way to kick off the spring season. There will be items here that cannot be found just anywhere. The staff has reached deep and wide into the community for donations and consignments. The Barns will accept items March 17–20 from 12pm–3pm; all you need to do is show up and bring your goods in. If you need help moving a large piece or are not sure if your item is suitable for the sale call Lyndee Nelms at 540-955-3378.

The doors to the sale will be open from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and 1pm to 5pm on Sunday. All of the ins and outs of the sale can be found at
