CLARKS SUMMIT — The Twice Admired Emporium, an upscale tag sale benefiting The Gathering Place, will take place from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25 at the Bedford Street Fire Station.
The Gathering Place is a community arts and education center soon to be created by re-purposing the old Clarks Summit Firehouse. Featured at the Emporium will be a home accessories tag sale offering items donated by community members, a silent auction highlighting several one-of-a-kind items, a “Bits and Bobs” area for small collectibles and Emily’s Attic where a collection of objects may be purchased for one’s own re-purposing projects.
The entry fee is $15.
Several vendors and presenters will also participate, giving all attendees a chance to learn innovative decorating techniques, find ways to re-invent household items and purchase whimsical creations. Woods and Company will offer tips on custom finishing and decorative painting plus window treatments, home accents and design services. Another presenter, a re-purposing boutique called From Drab to Fab, will suggest ways of turning old, drab items into something fabulous.
Vendors offering unique items for sale include Fly Me Home, a shop in Pittston, featuring fanciful, handmade and up-cycled creations; local artist Leslee Clapp, offering her distinctive re-purposed accessories; and Verve Vertu Art Studio from Dallas, displaying the re-purposed works created by artists with special needs.
The event will also include refreshments and the music of Jazz Pianist Bill Carter.
