A spokesperson said, “After a two-year hiatus, the Bermuda National Trust [BNT] is delighted to host its annual Auction & Jumble Sale at the Jack King Building and Commercial Slat House in the Botanical Gardens again.
“Bermuda’s largest recycling event, the Auction & Jumble sale has long been a popular part of the community calendar, attracting a large and diverse group of customers, from bargain hunters to antique collectors.
“All items are donated and the money raised helps the Bermuda National Trust to fulfill its mission to protect and promote Bermuda’s unique natural and cultural heritage for everyone, forever.
“The BNT Auction & Jumble sale is the perfect reason to start your spring clean-out early and pass on items you no longer need. Donations can be dropped off at the Jack King Building in the Botanical Gardens from Sunday to Tuesday,” said Dr. Dörte Horsfield, Head of Development. “The Trust will recycle it all into funding for its natural and cultural heritage programmes. We invite everyone to come out to the Botanical Gardens next Thursday and Friday to pick up amazing bargains and treasures, and to join us on Saturday 25 February for the auction, which will feature high quality antiques and Bermudiana.”
“BNT is looking for donations of everything but clothing. Good housewares, porcelain, decorative items, ceramics, Bermuda boxes and trays, antique silver items, hurricane shades, maritime items, fine linens, good small furniture and upholstered pieces, oriental rugs and are particularly sought after.
