Take Home a Piece of History at the Syracuse Stage Yard Sale
You saw it on stage—now have it for yourself at Syracuse Stage’s 2015 Yard Sale on Saturday, Aug. 22. It will take place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. (sorry, no early birds) at the blue warehouse located at 1330 Jamesville Ave., Syracuse.
Parking is free and available on site. Purchases can be made with cash or credit card, no checks. Proceeds go toward the purchase of equipment and tools for Syracuse Stage’s production shops, which include props, sets and costumes.
After sorting through costumes, props, furniture and carpentry materials, Syracuse Stage’s shop supervisors have selected several hundred items from past productions to sell. Grab a new winter coat, Halloween costume, antique table, chairs, upholstery fabric or choose from an array of kitchen utensils, decorative vases, artificial plans, board games and bar supplies. Items available for purchase have appeared in shows such as “Hairspray,” “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,” “A Christmas Carol,” “The Miracle Worker,” “Caroline, or Change” and many more.
