Classical Tents & Party Goods Hosts A Warehouse Sale

If you’ve been to a tented event in the Rural Intelligence region, you’ve probably been to one set up by Classical Tents and Party Goods. And if you’ve oohed and aahed over the table settings, the chairs, the dance floor or the lighting, you now have a chance to purchase some of that room-transforming magic for yourself. On Wednesday, April 13, Classical Tents is having its every-other-year warehouse sale at its 20,000-square-foot Pittsfield, Mass. facility.

Items for sale include chairs, linens, about 250 place settings (many mismatched, for those who like that look), glassware, 66-inch wooden spools that make great tables, a nearly-new generator, and even a stunning black-and-white dance floor.

“We have a lot of linens that are in great condition but may be out of style or we’re out of room,” says Katherine Lockridge, Classical Tents’ owner. Same for the china and flatware. And even though there’s no retail price to discount, Lockridge can assure customers that everything is priced very affordably. “We want it to go!” she says. In fact, some of the larger items will be priced at “make an offer.”

Generally, the sale brings in a mix of caterers and the rest of us who’d like to refresh our own cache of place settings and entertaining accoutrements. Lockridge mentions that some people rely on the sale to make curtains out of the linens. Clever — and cost saving.

“We’ll also be giving tours of our showroom,” Lockridge says. “It’s a chance to show people what we do.”

But the best things, like chairs and linens, go early in the day, so it’d be prudent to get there early. Cash sales only.
