Grannie’s Attic and Closet at the senior center

Submitted by Lena Kassa, OSC.

Orcas Senior Center is pleased to announce Grannie’s Attic 2.0 to be held on Saturday, April 29. You may be wondering, “Why 2.0?” Because, unlike the previous Grannie’s Attic, we will not be accepting donations of items for sale. Instead, we will be renting tables for anyone to sell their household or vintage items, tools, clothing, collectibles or anything else. Table rentals are first come first serve, and will rent for $20 in most locations, or $30 per table each for the nine tables in the prime locations near the entrance. Each seller may rent up to two six-foot tables. To help cover the costs of hosting the event, shoppers will be invited to donate $5 at the door. We also need volunteers to help set up the day before, tasks on the day of, and clean up afterward. Is this you? To rent a table or volunteer to help, please contact Programs and Activities Manager, Steven Ziegler, at 206-413-6156 or

Grannie’s Closet offers household décor, kitchen and vintage items, crafting supplies and much, much more. Located in the front lobby of the Orcas Senior Center, Grannie’s Closet occupies only a few shelves. But with a constantly changing array of items, it’s worth checking what’s new on a regular basis. Grannie’s Closet is self-service, and each item is labeled with a suggested donation. All the profit goes directly to support the Orcas Senior Center, and all the items are donated to the Orcas Senior Center. Please come in and have a look! If you have items you wish to donate, OSC super volunteer, John Ehrmantraut, will gladly accept these on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. or Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Check us out!
