Pre-owned Art Sale
If you are like us, you have pieces of art stashed in closets, attics and other nooks and crannies – items you once loved (and may still) but no longer have a place for in your home. AND, you may also hanker for some “new to you” art to update your décor. Along comes the Friends of The Sisters Library Pre-owned Art Sale to the rescue! As far as we know, this is the first event of this kind in our community.
The Friends of the Sisters Library (FOSL) is seeking donations of pre-owned, quality art to be re-sold to raise funds to support the Deschutes Public Library, to be purchased by you and others. Here’s how it will work. On Saturday, July 29, you can bring your donated pieces to the Sisters Library between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm and then return on Sunday, July 30 between 11:00 and 5:00 pm to purchase “new to you” pieces of art. Donated art can be wall-hung, picture frames, posters, or free-standing/table-top art such as sculpture. Exceptions are unusually large items including quilts. Items should be clean, in good condition, without water marks, insect or other damage. FOSL reserves the right to reject donations that in its judgment cannot be resold, set the sales price (though information from the donator is helpful) and dispose of unsold pieces at the end of the sale. If you wish to have unsold art returned to you, you must come to the Library on Monday, July 31 from 10:30 am -12:30 pm to pick it up. Unfortunately, we do not have storage to keep any art work past July 31.
We hope you have items to donate and can also come to our sale! Attached is PDF of a flyer/poster. Please distribute this flyer via email or other means to get the word out. Please forward any questions to me or members of the committee (in the cc above).
We know you love our library as much as we do and hope you can join us in this fund-raising effort.
