Treasure Hunt at Triangle Park
By Vicki Jackson
Neighbors and friends of North Clearwater Beach have been busy searching for buried treasures in their homes and garages. The booty will be on display and offered for sale this Saturday, March 27th.
Two local non-profits will co-sponsor the rummage sale. Clearwater Beach Association (CBA) will use proceeds of the fundraiser for their ongoing programs of community service, such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Friends of Clearwater Beach Library and Recreation Center hope to use a portion of their share to keep the beach swimming pool open, at least on weekends, through mid-October. Both organizations support the Beach Library through donations of computers and funding.
Event Co-chair, Pat Power, shared a photo of a few of the bargains to be found. A collection of sailboat sculptures mounted on marble bases, by DeMott, is pictured. She said they have a treasure trove of fascinating books, some really neat mirrors, and lots of "beach" décor too. Larger items include a beautiful white leather sofa, chair and ottoman set, as well as tables and more. While all items have been affordably priced, others may be ransomed for as little as a quarter.
CBA President, Sue Johnson, said, "Our association and the beach community are to be commended for their outstanding support of our first ever Buried Treasure Sale at Triangle Park."
On North Clearwater Beach, bounded by Bay Esplanade and Narcissus, the location affords free parking, away from the main drag. The sale will run 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and there won't be any early-bird sales. For the best selection, and to avoid beach traffic, shoppers will want to be there when it opens.
