Old Whalers’ Church Yard Sale Benefit this Weekend


On Saturday, September 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Old Whalers’ Church will host its second annual yard sale to benefit church programming and the historic building’s upkeep.

The Old Whalers’ Church, on Union Street in Sag Harbor, is accepting items for donation including hardcover books, new clothing and shoes, electronics purchases in the last three years, DVDs, jewelry, purses, linens, pots, pans, glassware, dishes, antiques, frames, small kitchen appliances, artwork, prints, collectibles, new children’s toys, gardening items, gift items and holiday decorations.

The church will not be able to accept televisions or computer equipment over three years old, VHS tapes, paperback books, children’s used toys, baby furniture, mattresses, venetian blinds or large upholstered furniture such as couches, chairs and recliners.

Those wishing to drop off donations, should bring them to the church basement on Thursday, September 20 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Friday, September 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The church is also looking for volunteers to help run the event as well as bakers interested in donating to the church’s bake sale, which will run simultaneously with the yard sale.

For those interested in lending their support through purchasing items, the church has also announced it has added a “Chinese Auction” to the yard sale this year. Local vendors, crafters and community members have donated items like a $200 gift certificate for a pet visit to Dr. Barry Browning, a $75 gift certificate for a wash, cut and blow dry at Elizabeth’s Place and a gift certificate for a one-hour body massage plus a month of wellness classes at Southampton Hospital, to name a few.
