“Folks bring all kinds of things–housewares, jewelry, clothing, furniture–just about anything you can imagine, we close down the parking lot and you can go around and hit all of these different sales,” Bellamy Mansion Museum Site Manager Bob Lock said.

You can rent a table and space to display your items for a small fee by calling 910-251-3700 (Ext. 304). A limited number of spaces are available.

“Proceeds from the yard sale will go to our gardens, and Hurricane Florence gave our house and gardens a beating so we are in the process of replenishing those,” Lock said.

A number of 150-year old magnolia trees were damaged during the September 2018 hurricane. Lock says gardeners and volunteers are in the process of trimming and taking care of damaged trees on the historic site’s grounds.

In addition to the neighborhood yard sale, the Latimer House will be hosting a book-a-brac sale and the Burgwin-Wright House will have a white elephant sale which includes antiques.

The museum is located at 503 Market Street in Wilmington. The rain date for the event will be April 27.
