HINSDALE — Hinsdale Center for the Arts will hold a liquidation sale Saturday morning to sell all the furniture, equipment and supplies that remained when the center stopped operating in July.
Two pianos are for sale, a Yamaha baby grand piano and an upright Yamaha U1. The Yamaha U1 is one of the most popular pianos available, said Cynthia Scholl, a member of the center’s board of directors.
“I think because it is an upright and it has great sound,” she said.
The pianos are in good condition “because they were played all the time and tuned all the time,” Scholl said.
Board members were arranging the center’s contents for the sale and pricing items on Wednesday.
The items include a kiln, air conditioners, a microwave oven, desks, file cabinets, folding chairs, a refrigerator, clocks, stools, easels, display pedestals, artwork, fax machines, a phone system and assorted office supplies and art materials.
Only cash will be accepted and all sales will be final.
The center in Katherine Legge Memorial Park, at 5903 S. County Line Road in Hinsdale, will be open from 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Oct. 20.
If all the contents are not sold, the sale will resume the following Saturday, Oct. 27, Scholl said.
