Bernews: BNT To Re-Open ‘Trust Treasures Shop
The Bermuda National Trust is reopening its second-hand pop-up shop on Thursday [Sept 29] and invites the public to come and seek out ‘treasures’ ranging from glassware and china to artwork, antiques and curios.
A spokesperson said, “Trust Treasures” at Waterville, 2 Pomander Road will be open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm until the end of November. All funds raised by the shop go towards caring for the historic buildings and nature reserves that BNT holds in trust for the community, as well as its education and advocacy programmes.”
“Items on sale include crystal and glassware, porcelain and ceramics, silver, jewellery, rugs, ornaments, artwork, antique chairs and tables, Bermuda books and bound sets of classics, and much more.
“BNT is still accepting donations for the shop. If you are moving house, redecorating or just looking for new homes for quality items you don’t know what to do with, you can drop them off at Waterville on Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, or Saturdays from 10am to 4pm. For more information visit bnt.bm.”
“We are excited to reopen the shop again this autumn with a fabulous selection of items for sale, generously donated by members of the public,” said Dr. Dörte Horsfield, Head of Development.
“The shop fits perfectly into our natural and cultural heritage mission. It helps the environment by finding new owners for items that certainly shouldn’t be thrown out, and we have a specific focus on Bermuda-related items such as cedar furniture and old Bermuda books. Everyone in the community benefits from the opportunity to buy beautiful housewares, furniture, artwork and other decorative items at very affordable prices.”
