The third annual Vintage Sale will held on Sunday, April 26, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. during the Nikkei Matsuri Festival. The sale will be held in the agricultural exhibit area of the Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj).

This unique sale features gently-used items of Japanese or Asian influence. Last year, Machiko Shiozaki from the Kimura Gallery in Palo Alto, California, helped us appraise the donated items. We hope to be able to take advantage of her expertise again this year.

On sale last year were books from the museum library, obis, kimonos, fabric, dishes, dolls, swords, paintings, and hangings. The samurai swords were the most sought-after items. We expect similar items this year. So come one, come all, to check out the goods!

You can help us raise money for the museum by either:

  • Donating--Donations of lightly-used items with a Japanese influence will be accepted from April 2 through April 23, Thursday through Sunday, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Did you know that donations are tax-deductible? We will give you a tax-deductible donation form for your items.
  • Buying--Come to the sale and buy whatever strikes your fancy, either for yourself or for a thoughtful gift.

So in either case you can help yourself as well as support the museum.

If you wish more information, please email or call (408) 294-3138.
