NEW BERN — The New Bern Historical Society will hold its next ABC (Attic, Basement, Closet) Yard sale on Saturday, Oct. 2 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A curated array of carefully selected antiques, furniture, collectibles and art will be for sale.  These special pieces will be displayed at the New Bern Battlefield Park Pavilion, an open-air facility, at 300 Battlefield Trail at the entrance to the Taberna subdivision. There will be six departments of items: antiques, art, collectibles, furniture, jewelry and tools/outdoors.

This is the 31st year for this well-known fundraiser for the society. All items purchased must be picked up by 2 p.m. on sale day. Payment will be taken by cash or checks only.

“We have been very pleased with the results of our reimagined ABC Sale and expect to continue to have two each year, one in the spring and one in the fall,” said NBHS Executive Director Mickey Miller. “Again, we have collected some very special items. People will find this curated selection contains some wonderful bargains.  We encourage people to come and take advantage of the values that will be found.  And in the process, you’ll be helping our nonprofit organization.”

The mission of the New Bern Historical Society is to celebrate and promote New Bern and its heritage through events and education.  Offices are located in the historic Attmore-Oliver House at 511 Broad Street in New Bern.
