Moore-Lindsay House seeks donations for garage sale

NORMAN — The Moore-Lindsay Historical House wants your old sofa, those crystal goblets that have been packed away in boxes and haven’t seen the light of day in years and that defunked movie collection that is just collecting dust.

Erin Smith, Moore-Lindsay Historical House curator, has been busily organizing a garage sale set for 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 13 at the museum, 508 N. Peters Ave.

Smith has started collecting donations and will accept furniture, electronics, books, clothing, shoes, kitchen supplies, dishes, glassware, movies, CDs, DVDs, tapes, records, children’s items such as clothing, toys, etc., gardening and home repair supplies, holiday decorations, craft supplies and miscellaneous home items such as wall hangings, picture frames and lamps.

“We will be taking donations until April 6. We will have to get everything priced and organized,” Smith said.

All proceeds from the garage sale go to the Cleveland County Historical Society, which is the organization that runs the museum. All donations are tax deductible, Smith said.

“Furniture usually is the really big selling items, so if we could get a lot of furniture, that would make me really happy. I’ve also noticed that books tend to sell really well, so if we could get a lot of books that would be awesome. Craft supplies tend to sell really well,” Smith said. “We’re trying to make as much as we can now because we are going to have to start paying all of our utilities within the next couple of years.

“The city of Norman is being effected by budget cuts, so these are just changes that need to be made. That is affecting all properties owned by the city. So this money would help us tremendously going toward our utility costs.”

Those interested can drop off donations at the museum during regular business hours, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Smith said she would make special arrangements for items to be dropped off, if necessary.
