The Red Truck Estate Sale, founded on the principles of renew, reuse, rRecycle, will offer an exclusive selection of pre-owned fine art and antiques, and will help benefit our local land and water. The event is a great opportunity for donors to de-clutter and give their items a new home, and for buyers to find rare treasures to adorn their houses and gardens.  It’s a win-win for everyone, as proceeds from the event will go towards the North Shore Land Alliance, an organization working to protect and preserve, in perpetuity, the green spaces, farmlands, wetlands, groundwater and historical sites of Long Island’s North Shore.

Furniture and antiques from some of the Long Island's most prominent homes will be available for purchase at the Red Truck Estate Sale.
