Auction For Old Whalers

More than 300 lots will be available for bidding

    Antiques, collectibles, and estate pieces will go on the block in a benefit auction for the Old Whalers Church Community House Fund on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the church on Union Street.
    More than 300 lots will be available for bidding and put up by Paul Bailey, a certified auctioneer. A preview of the items will begin at 8 a.m. the day of the sale. The lots will include furniture, lighting, rugs, glassware, vintage toys, and other unique items. Objects offered will date from the late 19th century through the 1960s.
    No buyer’s premium will be charged, and, because the Community House Fund is a nonprofit entity, there is no sales tax. Checks, MasterCard, and Visa will be accepted.
    The auction will be held under a tent on the front lawn, weather permitting, or in the main sanctuary of the church. The preview will be on the lower level of the church. A café on the premises will open at 10:30 a.m., for cash sales of coffee, soft drinks, baked goods, and hot dogs throughout the day.
