Mini flea market at the Sutton Museum of Communications and History

Published on November 7, 2019

Have you ever wanted to handle an object in a museum? What if you actually owned one?

Well, now’s your chance! The Museum of Communications and History is doing a big clear-out of its basement! This very unique “garage sale” will be held on Saturday, November 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

This is the perfect opportunity to get your hands on a special antique: General store boxes, bottles, old records, sewing machines, 1930s The Saturday Evening Post collection, snowshoes and other small wonders will all be available at low prices.

Sutton’s Culture Department is currently working on a plan to infuse new energy into the amazing collection of 1,500 artifacts at the Museum, which belongs to the Town. This will involve deciding what to keep to ensure a record of local history, and making arrangements for proper storage.

As part of this process, the Museum will be returning some everyday items from the past to the community, to be loved and cared for once again. Which is where you come in.

Don’t miss this very special sale!
