Sale On The Grounds

Is it an antiques and collectibles shop? A vintage clothing and jewelry store? An estate sale? An art gallery? A garage sale? Lakewood Historical Society’s 28th annual Sale on the Grounds is all of the above!

You will not want to miss this event held the first Saturday & Sunday in May. The Nicholson House is filled with antiques, collectibles, decorative and personal items; tents throughout the yard offer a huge selection of kitchen and craft items, toys, games & sporting goods, tools & electronics, and lawn, garden & picnic items.

Friday May 1st is dedicated to the Preview Party, a ticketed event from 7-9 p.m. For $20 you have the opportunity to beat the crowds and shop early with a limited number of people while enjoying beer & wine poured by Rozi’s and appetizers. Reservations are required for the Preview Party; you may make them online at, or by mailing a check to The Lakewood Historical Society, 14710 Lake Avenue, Lakewood 44107. For questions or more information, call 216-221-7343.

Saturday May 2nd at 9 a.m. the public sale opens and runs through 3 p.m. Sunday hours are noon to 3 p.m., when everything except the Antiques Room is half-price. Even gamblers don’t wait till Sunday, though—they won’t risk it. Set aside plenty of time to shop as not only is the Nicholson House filled, so is a 20’ x 70’ tent and several smaller tents covering the grounds. This is the perfect place to outfit a new house or apartment or find a special vintage piece to add to your collection.

If you’ve shopped this sale before, no doubt it’s already on your calendar. If you’ve never been to this sale, make it a point to come. This is one event you don’t want to miss!
