The Bay View Historical Society will hold a benefit yard sale at 2590 S. Superior Street on Saturday, May 21st.  Located on the lawn and inside the house at the Society’s headquarters, the Beulah Brinton House, the sale will be held from 9 am til 3 pm and is open to the public.

Society members and other generous donors are cleaning out their attics and basements to offer a wide variety of goods for sale, including furniture, antiques and collectibles, books, toys and other household items.  There will be a boutique and book shop as well as refreshments available for purchase.  The Society’s second floor gift shop will be open, featuring Bay View Historical Society logo items, note cards and reproductions of vintage post cards depicting familiar Bay View scenes.

The Society is accepting pre-priced donations of all items except clothing, shoes and holiday  items.  Donations can be dropped off at the garage behind the house between Monday, May 16th and Friday, May 20th or on the morning of the sale.  The Society also offers pick-up service for large or heavy items.  Call 414-324-5690 to make arrangements or for further information.

All proceeds will benefit the Bay View Historical Society, a non-profit, educational community organization and will be used to support the Society’s programs and its ownership of the historic Beulah Brinton House.  Built in 1872, it is among the best remaining Gothic Revival residences in the city.  It was formerly home to Beulah Brinton, a community leader who turned her house into an informal social center and Bay View’s first library.  It was designated as one of the “10 To Save in 2010” by UWM’s Institute for Historic Preservation.  Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law
