The Beaufort Historical Association is hosting a pair of events on the weekend of Nov. 21-22, sure to set the holiday tone. On Saturday, Nov. 21, the BHA hosts its annual Jumble Sale. The sale, which is sure to have something for everyone, will run from 9am-3pm at the Beaufort Historic Site. Event-goers can expect to find antiques and collectibles, fine art, pottery, vintage treasures, handmade jewelry, craft, holiday items, candles, books, homemade food and more. Held rain or shine, it’s a great opportunity for holiday shoppers to find that one-of-a-kind gift and special bargains all in one location.
“The Jumble Sale is a lot of fun for both vendors and shoppers,” said BHA Executive Director Patricia Suggs. “It’s a great place to shop for handmade items and unique gifts. Paired with the BHA’s Community Thanksgiving Feast, it makes for a great autumn weekend in historic Beaufort.”
The Community Thanksgiving Feast runs from 11:30am-1pm on Sunday, Nov. 22 at the site. This promises to be a unique, old-fashioned gathering of friends, neighbors and visitors which promotes a sense of community while dining on an amazing meal. Prepared and donated by Beaufort restaurants, the feast is a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
The meal will be served from the Josiah Bell House and can either be eaten on site or packed to take home. The event will be held rain or shine. Tickets for the event are $22 and tend to sell out quickly.
