Get out. enjoy the autumn season and shop for unique treasures at the Frontier Times Museum.

On Thursday, November 17, and Friday, November 18, the museum will be hosting their annual fall yard sale. The sale will take place on the museum grounds on both days from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Get an early start on your Christmas shopping when the museum cleans out its storage room to sell a unique blend of artwork, household items, vintage kitchenware, decorative items and Christmas decorations. Historical books and reproduction maps will also be among the unique finds.

“The museum has an off-site storage area that over the years has become overflowing,” explained museum director Rebecca Norton, “We have original artwork left over from our Jailhouse Art Shows, vintage treasures, folk art, and anything else you can find in a museum’s attic. We also have very generous donors in Bandera who donate to the sale throughout the year to help raise funds for the museum.”

Unique to this year sale will be two pop-up stores, Sewing Notions by Margaret and Beckie’s Basement. Sewing Notions by Margaret offers a unique selection of fabrics, including vintage fabrics, sewing and quilting notions and books, vintage sewing patterns, a vintage sewing machine and cabinet, and decorative items and tchotchkes for the quilters on your Christmas list. Beckie’s Basement features mid-twentieth century collectibles, artwork, and other vintage treasures.

All items being sold are donated to the museum just for this sale to help support the museum’s operations and educational programs.

The Frontier Times Museum is located at 510 13th Street, Bandera, Texas.
