Florida International Museum to hold sale

By Times staff writers

© St. Petersburg Times, published March 7, 2001


Even a big place like the Florida International Museum has to clean out the closets occasionally! To get more room for exhibition space and classrooms, the museum is selling props from the Treasures of the Czars exhibit, office equipment, display units from the store, barely-damaged merchandise, flea market items from the volunteers, lamps, cases, desks, computers and many more items. The sale will be held from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday at 100 Second St. N. The $3 admission to the sale will include entry to the Cuban Missile Crisis and Countdown to Eternity exhibits. Call 822-3693.
