Collectors, mark your calendars.
The Delta Hospice Society is hosting its highly coveted annual sale of antique, unique, vintage and collectibles on March 2 and 3.
Hospice Cottage Charity Shoppe volunteers are collecting all the donated vintage instruments, records and record players, old cameras, sports memorabilia, stamps, books, buttons and sewing notions, as well as Asian-influenced and First Nations-influenced art, for this one time of year.
Oddities and curios of days gone past like rocking horses, wooden toys, and collectible dolls, plus unique furniture and home décor to accent your vintage or country style home are all available for those two days in March, as are crystal and silver sets, linens, pieces of china and one-of-a-kind handcrafts.
“This event is fun for us and for the community of shoppers who delight in this specialty shopping experience,” said Nancy Macey, executive director of the Delta Hospice Society. “Our donors give such beautiful things, and our shoppers love to find them while supporting a great cause.”
Funds raised through the Hospice Cottage Charity Shoppe support the care for — and needs of — people living with serious illness, end-of-life, grief and loss in our community at the Harold & Veronica Savage Centre for Supportive Care and the Irene Thomas Hospice.
The shop will operate with extended hours (9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on March 2, and 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 3) so that everyone gets a chance to stop in and search for those special treasures. Come as early as 7:30 a.m. on Friday March 2 for a numbered ticket to guarantee your spot in line.
The Hospice Cottage Charity Shoppe is located at 1521 56th St., Tsawwassen.
