Royal Gazette: National Trust to open pop-up shop at Paget headquarters
Furniture, art and housewares will be on sale at “affordable prices” when a heritage charity reopens its second-hand pop-up shop this week.
The Bermuda National Trust will welcome customers from Thursday, when they are invited to “seek out ‘treasures’ ranging from glassware and china to artwork, antiques and curios”.
Dörte Horsfield, the charity’s head of development, said: “We are excited to reopen the shop again this autumn with a fabulous selection of items for sale, generously donated by members of the public.
“The shop fits perfectly into our natural and cultural heritage mission.
“It helps the environment by finding new owners for items that certainly shouldn’t be thrown out, and we have a specific focus on Bermuda-related items such as cedar furniture and old Bermuda books.
“Everyone in the community benefits from the opportunity to buy beautiful housewares, furniture, artwork and other decorative items at very affordable prices.”
Items on sale will include crystal, porcelain and ceramics, silver, jewellery, rugs, ornaments, antique chairs and tables, Bermuda books and bound sets of classics.
Donations can be dropped off at Waterville, 2 Pomander Road, Paget, on weekdays from 9am to 5pm, or on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.
Trust Treasures will be open for sales at Waterville every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm until the end of November.
Funds raised will go towards the care of historic buildings and nature reserves that BNT holds in trust for the community, as well as its education and advocacy programmes
