The Bargain Barn is open each Thursday through October 11.
Donations are accepted at the Senior Center through September 27.
The Barn, located at 136 Elm St., is open for shopping each Thursday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Shop for great bargains on glassware, dishes, vintage jewelry, small furniture, lamps, books, puzzles, movies, music, board games, mirrors, artwork, frames and other collectibles. You never know when you will come across that rare item.
“Community support is critical to the success of the Barn Sale,” said Stoneham Senior Center Director Maureen Canova. “From our donors who give us their very nice items to sell (no ‘junque’ here) to our shoppers who return week after week to our wonderful volunteers who spend countless hours cataloging items, pricing things and organizing the sale, our community members ensure a successful Sale.”
The Barn Sale is run entirely by volunteers, so 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the programs and services of the Senior Center, according to Canova.
“Enrichment programs and activities for our seniors are an important part of what we do, and revenue from the Barn Sale funds performances by local musicians, pays for presentations by artists and craft experts, and supplements field trips and outings,” she said.
The Stoneham Senior Center is the Town’s second Almshouse built in 1852, in the Greek Revival style. The building was renovated in 1998 and has been proudly listed on the National Register of Historical Places since 1984. The Council On Aging provides services of nutrition, health, recreation, transportation, information and referral programs for Stoneham seniors at the senior center.
