Historical society seeks donated items for sale

UNION – Cleaning out that garage, shed or spare bedroom this spring? The McHenry County Historical Society is seeking donations for its popular “white elephant” sale during this year’s Heritage Fair.

The sale has become a much-anticipated and pivotal part of the McHenry County Historical Society’s fundraising effort. Items range from vintage clothing to a combination microfiche/microfilm reader for budding genealogists.

There also are garden tools, furniture, new and vintage books, glassware, seasonal merchandise, games, sporting equipment and tables of odds and ends you’ll not find anywhere else.

This year’s sale hours have changed. It will be from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. July 13 in the Schuette Building, next door to the museum. No early birds. Checks and cash only.

Donations may be dropped off from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the historical society museum, 6422 Main St. No broken or soiled items, or items that have been recalled or contain hazardous materials will be accepted.

Large appliance, antiquated computers and electronic items, VHS tapes, medical supplies and such child items as cribs, car seats and used stuffed animals will not be accepted.

The society also reserves the right to reject items because of duplication, condition or disposal costs.

Donations are tax deductible and will contribute to funding MCHS programs and operations. For information, call 815-923-2267.
