Okay. This one really is almost too good to share. But since we’ll be camped out the night before, we figure there’s no danger of missing out on any of the choicest items at what we’re guessing will be the rummage sale of the century. Pretty much everything in, on, and around the American Visionary Art Museum is a thing of odd and curious beauty, so we imagine that whatever they’re hauling up out of the basement is probably pretty good, too. So mark your calendars for this Saturday, when from 9am until 1pm AVAM gives you the opportunity to dig through all of its hidden (until now) treasures.
Whether you’re on the hunt for button eyes for your sock monkey, or a computer so old that it would probably do best as a planter, you’ll probably find just what you’re looking for (and more) at this “once in a blue moon” sale. The museum promises bargains of all types: “artwork, books, cards & publications, electronics, office supplies & furniture, vintage Macs, retro AVAM & Kinetic memorabilia, plenty of art fixins, and loads more.” They’ll take your cash or your credit card as you fill your bags (bring your own, by the way) with what will surely be a combination of the super useful , and the how-would-one-possibly-use-this.
AVAM’s Big Ol’ Barn Sale takes place this Saturday, March 15, 2014 from 9am – 1pm in the AVAM Tall Sculpture Barn. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.avam.org.
