For 30 years customers have shopped The Huntington Collection end-of-month sales, seeking bargains on the resale shop’s treasures. The month-end sale features half price on all regular clothing, plus featured sales on boutique clothing, linens, artwork and books. In the Annex section of The Huntington Collection, end-of-month shoppers traditionally save 50 percent on all donated items including furniture, sofas, dining sets, armoires and rugs.
On Thursday, August 28, from noon to 6 p.m., the August end-of-month sale will feature, for the first time ever, a 75 percent discount on specially tagged items in The Huntington Collection’s Annex.
“Since we opened our doors 30 years ago, end-of-month sales have been a great attraction,” says Betty MacInnes, founder of The Huntington Collection who now serves as assistant manager. “Customers arrive a day early to preview merchandise and they know we do not change the location of merchandise so they can line up an hour or two outside the doors of the Shop and Annex on Sale Day and be the first to rush for the item they picked out the day before.”
The Huntington Collection receives an extensive array of donated merchandise including china, crystal, jewelry, kitchenware, toys, collectibles and decorative pieces. All are accepted and inspected under the trained eyes of volunteers and staff and then put out for sale if their condition is acceptable. In addition, The Huntington Collection accepts consignment items worth $250 or more after they have been appraised by qualified Huntington Collection appraisers.New merchandise is received every day.
