Help the Lenawee Historical Museum with one of its New Year Resolutions! The Museum frequently receives donations of items to sell to raise operating funds. Currently, these items are set out for sale at the museum where they can be seen and purchased by museum visitors.
We are hoping to reach a wider audience by placing some of the items online for auction. These are often items of clothing, books, household items, pictures, posters, comic books, artwork, or other collectibles of one type or another. Specific examples include old family Bibles, old textbooks, political campaign buttons, commemorative calendars, militaria, tableware, jewelry, chachkies, and tools.
The Lenawee Historical Museum is seeking a volunteer to create and help manage an account on one or more internet auction sites.
If you have expertise, and are able to help us create or manage online accounts to sell some of these items, you can drop by on any Friday or Saturday between 10 and 2, or you can call the museum at 517-265-6071. If you don’t have the time to do it for us, maybe you could teach us how to do it and get us started. Your efforts will be appreciated either way.
