The Bellevue Botanical Garden Society is looking for quality collector, antique and home décor donations for its Vintage Sale to be held April 4-7. All proceeds will benefit the “Growing a Living Legacy” campaign to fund an education center, visitor services building, more parking and a new garden area for the Bellevue Botanical Garden.

And, as the garden is a non-profit, all items donated are tax-deductible.

Early donations will help the small staff maximize their time more efficiently due to the time required to identify and price art and unusual items. Items will be priced with the goal of selling within the sale dates so the sticker prices will be somewhat lower than market value.

Items donated and accepted become the property of the garden and won’t be returned. Any items remaining after the sale will be sold on a secondary market to benefit the garden or donated to a local charity.

The sale will be held in the house located by the entrance to the Gardens and five rooms have been set aside for the sale items. Items sought include footstools, garden art, steins, china, silver, accent furniture and old and new costume jewelry.

More information, or to arrange for pick up or drop off items, is available at bellevuebotanical.org.
