Treasure Hunting

SSA Upscale Sale “Early Bird” admission tonight

 Don't forget, a $5 donation lets you get in the Spokane Symphony Associate's annual "Upscale Sale" tonight at 5:30. You can see photos of some of the items on sale here.

This weekend is your chance to find a treasure at the Third Annual  Spokane Symphony Associates “Upscale Sale.”

I’m a big fan of the sale and try to never miss it. (I wrote about last year’s favorite finds here.) 

This year’s sale is bigger and better than ever thanks to Carol Worthington-Borodin’s donation of more than 10,000 pieces of fine china and 1,000 pieces of fine crystal. Worthington, a noted appraiser and antiques dealer, donated pieces from her former pattern-matching business. If you've ever wanted to add to your china collection, or you're looking for pieces to complete a set, this is a perfect opportunity.

Other always-wonderful-to-find items include furs, silver, musical instruments, books, linens and holiday decorations.

The Upscale Sale has become the place for scoring great deals on antiques, designer clothing, brand-name furniture as well as vintage rugs, costume jewelry and household items. More than 150 individuals have contributed to the sale.

For a $5 admission, early Birds can take advantage of the 5:30 - 7pm Thursday evening preview sale and shop before the sale opens to the public Friday morning at 8am.

All proceeds benefit the Spokane Symphony.

See you there?
