“Proceeds from the sale go to our gardens, and Hurricane Florence gave our house and gardens a beating so we are in the process of replenishing those,” said Bellamy Mansion
Museum Site Manager Bob Lock.

A number of 150-year old magnolia trees were damaged in the storm and Lock says they are in the process of trimming and taking care of those trees on the grounds of the property.

You can rent a table and space to display your items for a small fee by calling 910-251-3700 (Ext. 304). A limited number of spaces are available.

“Folks bring all kinds of things–housewares, jewelry, clothing, furniture–just about anything you can imagine, we close down the parking lot and you can go around and hit all of these different sales,” Lock said.

In addition to the yard sale, the Latimer House will be hosting a book-a-brac sale and the Burgwin-Wright House will have a white elephant sale which includes antiquest.

The museum is located at 503 Market Street in Wilmington. The rain date for the event will be April 27th.
