This Saturday, June 7, will see a lot of visitors to the Art District neighborhoods. The Riverside (formerly Wheeler) Neighborhood Association is sponsoring its Second Annual Renovators Sale from 8 am to 1 pm. Residents will be selling collectible, unusual, and often historic items from their front lawns. This sale is a ‘must do’ for historic home owners. The event is free and you can pick up a map at the No Ruz Grotto, corner of Second and Washington. Although the official end time is 1 pm, last year many sellers stayed open later to accommodate all the shoppers. Billy Hedel’s Studio & Gallery in Blackford’s Grove will be participating and giving away copies of The Washington Avenue Historic District: A Walking Tour and Primer of Fine Architecture in Evansville to every visitor.
BHS&G promises you a Whale of a Sale with a huge selection of mostly vintage and collectible items in several categories. Items included come from our own collections and those of our parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. We’ll be selling Billy’s fine art at Y’art prices (that event was on sabbatical this spring) and works by other artists from our collection.
Categories – Tools, hardware & equipment from Pop’s garage; handmade furniture from the Denim Santa’s workshop; the Vintage Boudoir; collectible glass from several eras; books and music in all price ranges; Lionel trains and Plasticville; Cats, Critters, Fowl, and Fish; Vases; Coffee & Tea Sets; China & porcelain; collectible pottery; Clocks & globes; fine art books – both new and like-new; Evansville/regional memorabilia; Boyd’s Bears & Quarry Critters; the Cocktail Collection; Louisiana literature & fine art books; Religion (Gaither CDs & DVDs) and a whole lot more. We told you – it’s a Whale of a Sale.
Our location is 916 SE Sixth Street, just north of Washington Avenue. No early birds please.
