Mid Coast Hospital Auxiliary’s Grand and Glorious Yard Sale returns to Merrymeeting Plaza in Brunswick May 18-20.

There will be a special preview party from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on May 18 when members of the community can attend and purchase tickets in advance of the public sale.

Tickets to the preview party are $20 and can be purchased at the Mid Coast Hospital gift shop, Gulf of Maine Books in Brunswick and Now You’re Cooking in Bath. Tickets will be sold at the door on Friday for $25.

The sale will be presented as a suite of boutiques with three stores filled with new and gently used, donated merchandise including furniture, toys, linens, jewelry and housewares.

“Each year we are overwhelmed by the community’s support of this popular event,” said Joyce Morgan, president of the Mid Coast Hospital Auxiliary. “From the generous donations to the dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to set-up the merchandise for display. This year we received donations from entire estates, all of which has been assembled for premier viewing.”

The yard sale will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 19, and from 9 a.m. to noon on Sunday, May 20. Admission is free.

All proceeds from the sale benefit Mid Coast Hospital projects and health career scholarships for local students graduating in a health-related field.

“The event is entirely run by hardworking volunteers and dedicated Auxilians who whole-heartedly support the mission of Mid Coast Hospital to care for the health of this community,” Morgan said. “We look forward to seeing the hundreds of attendees who travel far and wide for this popular event, and this year, we anticipate our biggest turnout yet!”
