ArtSpring Treasure Fair

What is Treasure Fair?

ArtSpring could not be in operation without the support of our community and Treasure Fair is no exception. Ticket sales and theatre rentals amount to only 42% of ArtSpring’s operating budget. Treasure Fair is the major annual fundraiser that contributes to half of our fundraising efforts.

Treasure Fair is a phenomenal event that is organized almost exclusively by volunteers. We have great fun meeting donors and talking to business owners who donate items, skills, and experiences that we then auction off at our gala auction weekend.

Fabulous restaurants, scooter rentals, vintage jewelry, furniture, wine, coffee, yoga, original art work, and a spa day are among the treasures and experiences that have been donated in support of this year’s Treasure Fair.

  1. To reconfirm we have the following which we would like to donate to the ArtSpring Treasure Fair
    A large framed Stephen Lowe watercolour
    A small Duncan Phyfe drop-leaf dining table with brass feet(NB heavy)
    A ‘bronze’ 5 or 6 light chandelier( I cannot check numbers of lights as stored in garage)
    I think we were confused about when these pieces would be picked up. Please could you notify us about timing for pick up?
