BRATTLEBORO — Between the furniture, getaways, jewelry, art, china and the many other “treasured goods” that the greater Brattleboro community donated, Brattleboro Area Hospice raised approximately $25,000 at the Treasured Goods Auction. With the help of a great committee of volunteers, over 150 items were gathered. While not all were selected for the auction, many of those that were donated garnered great interest and brought in bids in the range of $1,200 to $4,500.

The BAH Treasured Goods Auction was included in the Iris Love estate auction and therefore drew interest nationally with a number of the bidders from outside the Brattleboro area. Thank you to so many in the community who donated items, worked as volunteers on the auction committee and bid on items that day.

Keep BAH in mind as you continue to clean your basements, attics, garages and sheds because we’re planning on doing this again.
