ABC (Art, Books, Cookies) Sale, June 11 at the Kirk

May 2022

This spring the Kirk is trying out a new fundraising idea – an ABC (Art, Books & Cookies) Sale. The event will take place in-person in the Kirk Hall at 35 Fitzroy Street on June 11, 2022 from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm.

Last autumn, we held an on-line Kirk Ceilidh sale instead of our usual in-person fall sale, and as a result were not able to include one of our most popular items – the book tables. They will be back for this new venture, and filled to brimming with value-priced options for your summer beach and cottage reading pleasure!

After last fall’s sale was done, we still had a number of lovely pieces of art available as well. We have added many other pieces of art to that treasure trove for this new sale. We have everything from original oil paintings to limited edition signed prints of wildfowl, pictures of Flower Fairies just perfect for decorating a nursery, African animal art, framed porcelain vignettes of 18th century figures, and pastoral landscapes perfect to brighten any wall in your home.

Of course, we have a table set aside for our famous Kirk bakers as well. They will be whipping up dozens of delicious cookies to tempt your taste buds. There may even be a cake or two thrown in for good measure. If you have a sweet tooth, this sale is for you!

Finally, we will be holding a raffle for $300 worth of expertly cooked lobster. The tickets are $10 each, or three for $25, and there is a limit of 300 tickets to be sold. The draw will be held at the end of the sale on June 11, and the lobster will be available for pick up or delivery on Saturday, June 18, just in time for Father’s Day feasting. Given the expected elevated price of Island lobster this year, this may be the best and most cost-effective way to enjoy this summer time treat.
