Community tidies up to aid Allied Arts

MILLEDGEVILLE — After more than a decade, the Friends of Allied Arts is once again providing the community a chance to purchase unique, donated items during the upcoming Great American Yard Sale to benefit improvement projects at the Marlor House.

“We encourage people to de-clutter their spaces and get rid of some good, reusable, sellable items to help the arts and get a benefit on their tax return at the end of the year,” said Randy Cannon, executive director of Allied Arts. “We did this about 12 years ago, but try to do it every 10 years. The Friends of Allied Arts is a volunteer support group who help Allied Arts do things in the community.”

The yard sale is slated from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 18 at the Allen’s Market Building located at 101 W. McIntosh St. next to the Milledgeville Police Department.

Hundreds of various new and used items will be for sale, including handmade quilts, fine silver, manual typewriters, books, small furniture pieces, artwork, vinyl record albums and clocks. The Friends are currently accepting donated items until the week of the sale.

“If someone has difficulty getting items to us, we will make arrangements to come wherever they are for pickup. We’re not really accepting computer equipment, bedding, or clothing, unless it’s vintage, and no pets,” Cannon said. “We also see this as a really good time to clean out the Marlor House and the market. We will sell some really nice artwork that we don’t have room to keep. We have some historic photographs of Milledgeville and of those we didn’t use or have extra copies of, we want to let somebody else enjoy them.”

A silent auction will feature 15 unique items such as a sterling silver sugar and creamer set, vintage Stanley and Millers Falls tool collections and a mahogany teacart.
