Palos Verdes Center Holds ‘Collected Treasures’ Benefit Sale

The Circle, a Palos Verdes Art Center support group, presents “Collected Treasures” this weekend.

Admission is free and the collection of curated estate items on sale includes antique Chinese slippers, a grandfather clock, linens, a Lalique bowl, china, silver and jewelry. The event takes place at the arts center on 5504 Crestridge Road during the following days and times:

Fri., June 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sat., June 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,

Sun., June 6, from 1 to 3 p.m.

In past years, Collected Treasures has been part of The Circle’s annual Palos Verdes Homes Tour.

The most special items will be in a  Silent Auction.

Funds raised from the sale will go to the Palos Verdes Art Center/Beverly G. Alpay Center for Arts Education which is celebrating 90 years of educating, enriching and building community through equal and inclusive access to the visual arts.
