If you’re anything like us, when you’re planning your Adirondack wedding, you probably want to find at least a few special items to add to your decor. Things that are unique, unlike anything your guests have seen at a wedding before. Perhaps an antique typewriter, or a stack of old books, or an apple crate filled with flowers. Here at Adirondack Weddings, we adore antique stores and sales, and we especially love when the money we spend goes to a good cause. Enter this sale that we just had to share with you!
Proceeds from this second-annual sale will go toward funding the NCSPCA’s new shelter, located on a wooded 18-acre property on Route 9 east of Elizabethtown. The facility, which just broke ground on August 15 after two years of fundraising, will replace the organization’s overcrowded shelter in Westport. It will feature modern amenities such as walking trails, a large fenced-in play yard, “get acquainted” rooms, space for obedience training, and more. The Frances Miller Shelter, as it will be known, is expected to open its doors in February 2013.
The shelter still needs to fund final construction costs, so checking out the sale is a great way to help. We attended last year and found several lovely pieces that we plan to use in our photo shoots. Feel free to spread the word, and if you attend, let us know what you found!
