Trash and Treasure Sale to be biggest one yet

CROSSVILLE — With more than 5,000 items for sale, this year’s annual Wharton Association Trash and Treasure Sale promises to have great bargains for everyone. Sale hours are Saturday, April 28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sunday, April 29, from 2 to 4 p.m.

The Trash and Treasure Sale is being held in the newly-expanded Blue Barn in Pleasant Hill. The Blue Barn is at 55 W. Lake Rd., just behind the new Wharton Homes on the corner of E. Main St. and W. Lake Rd. in Pleasant Hill. Plenty of parking is available. For further information or directions, call 277-5877.

This year’s sale boasts a large assortment of furniture, kitchenware, linens, pre-tested small working appliances, lamps, stereos, TVs and other electronics, home and garden tools, office supplies, CDs and DVDs, paintings, prints, wall hangings and frames, curios and collectibles, craft and hobby items, baskets, luggage, toys and holiday decorations. There are even some free items available.

According to volunteer sale worker Pat Cavanaugh, “Someone just starting out could set up housekeeping for less than $50.” One repeat bargain shopper says she returns every year because “you folks always have the best stuff and the prices are so reasonable!”

The annual Perennial Plant Sale also takes place April 28 and 29, under the canopy across from the Blue Barn. Coneflowers, lilacs, day lilies, flowering quince, irises and lily of the valley are always some of the most popular plants, and most plants sell for $1-3. Hundreds of healthy, homegrown house plants, ground covers, flowers and shrubs will go fast, so plan to come early. Hours are the same as those for the Trash and Treasure sale: Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sunday, April 29 from 2 to 4 p.m.

All proceeds from the Trash and Treasure sale benefit the expanded mission of the Wharton Association, which strives to uphold the legacy of doctor and founder, May Cravath Wharton. Through the association’s five sales every year, they are able to grant scholarships to area residents, address community needs for such things as food, home heating and electricity, and plan special events at both the assisted living and long-term care centers in Uplands Village, a not-for-profit retirement community in Pleasant Hill. Sale co-chairs this year are Uplands Village residents Sid Nichols and Don Nelson.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
