BERLIN — The annual Book Sale Part II will be held Saturday, Aug. 10, at the historic Brown Company barns on the East Milan Road in Berlin. The barns are located about one mile north of the hospital and across from the state prison entrance. The sale will take place 8 a.m.-3 p.m., rain or shine.
Authors for men, women and children of all ages are again being offered for sale on the specialty tables and in the regular book department as more books have come in since the previous sale. Everything from coffee table size to small paperbacks.
The Berlin & Coos County Historical Society asks the public NOT to bring items for donation to be sold at the barn sales on this day.
The volunteers are too busy on the days of the sale to accommodate you properly. Instead, call Ray at (603) 915-1454 to find out when someone will be at the barns to receive your donations.
Electronics are also being showcased. There are turntables, TVs, VHS players and many speakers. VHS tapes are now being offered by the boxful. These specialty items are in addition to the usual departments: baskets, sports, toys, kitchenware, records and CDs. The furniture department can be found on the lower level of the larger barn. Picture frames are located in both barns.
Proceeds from these yard sales go toward expenses to keep open the Moffett House Museum & Genealogy Center and to preserve the barns. The museum, located at 119 High St. in Berlin, is open year-round, Tuesday-Saturday, noon-4 p.m. or by appointment. Call (603) 752-4590 to make an appointment or to arrange for a group tour. Admission is free; donations are graciously accepted.
