Cottonwood AZ (March 15, 2021) – The Verde Historical Society is preparing for a summer of fun activities at the Clemenceau Heritage Museum beginning with the annual two-day garage sale fund-raising event scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 11 and 12. The society will begin accepting sale donations on Tuesday mornings, between 9:00am and 12:00pm, at the museum located at 1 N. Willard Street on the Mingus and Willard roundabout in Cottonwood.
Now is the time to clean out cupboards and drawers, attics and basements, garages and storage sheds and donate unused items to the sale as a philanthropic contribution in support of museum operations. Before unloading a vehicle, please check in at the museum office for directions to the storage location for drop off. Please wear a mask and be conscious of social distancing when doing so. Small loose items or fragile trinkets should be carefully boxed. All items should be washed, cleaned, not chipped or damaged and in good working order. Dishes, glassware, books and toys, lightweight furnishings (chairs or tables), folding yard chairs, birdbaths, bicycles or yard art, antiques and collectibles are all buyers choices. Small appliances, such as toaster ovens, vacuum cleaners or hair dryers that are in good working order are welcome.
Please, NO clothing or personal soft goods. NO large appliances. NO big, bulky items. These will not be accepted.
Loose and boxed items should be manageable. According to sale volunteers, “if you can’t move or lift it, we can’t move or lift it!”. If the museum is closed, nothing should be left at the museum site or the Clemenceau Public School building.
The Antique, Attic, Basement and Garage Sale is one of the biggest fund-raisers for the museum that the society hosts. All donations are gratefully received and appreciated. The Clemenceau Heritage Museum is located at 1 North Willard Street on the Mingus and Willard roundabout, in Cottonwood, AZ. For more information call 928-634-2868.
