Historical Society Rummage Sale Saturday May 13

BeFunky Collage9

Looking for a cannonball? If so, we have one for you.

The Altadena Historical Society will sell a wide variety of de-accessioned items from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 13, in the courtyard outside the Full Circle Thrift Store.

The thrift store is in the historic red brick Pacific Electric Co. powerhouse at 2245 N. Lake Ave., Altadena. Occupied by private businesses and not open to the public for several decades, the building with its soaring interior will be open for viewing and shopping.

Included in the sale will be many books, pictures, pamphlets and picture frames–even a cannonball of unknown date and origin.

Historical Society members will receive a 20 percent discount off their purchases.

“Every item in the sale has been scrupulously examined to determine whether it meets our mission, which is to preserve and promote the history of Altadena,” said Jane Brackman, Ph.D., society president.

The society’s archives and museum are located in the Altadena Community Center, 730 E. Altadena Drive, and are open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, and by appointment.

The AHS website is at Altadena; its blog is at; and the society has a regularly updated Facebook page.
