Watauga Arts Council to hold 'Yart Sale'
by Staff Reports
The Watauga County Arts Council will hold a "Yart Sale" June 1 to cover costs associated with its move to a new headquarters.
Staff is now seeking donations of items such as clothing and shoes, linens, towels, sheets, housewares, dishes, small furniture, chairs, tables, holiday decorations, small appliances, toys, and, of course, art, to sell.
Anyone interested in donating large appliances or furniture is invited to take a photo and write a short description to email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be posted on a board during the sale. Interested buyers will arrange pickup of the larger items.
The "Yart Sale" will be held from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. June 1. All proceeds will go toward WCAC moving and renovation expenses.
Donation items may be dropped off at the new location, 377 Shadowline Drive in Boone, between noon and 7 p.m. weekdays, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday, or by appointment. Pickups are also available.
Volunteers are working hard to renovate the Blue Ridge ArtSpace before its grand opening June 8.
