Drewhaven antique sale raises money for Charlotte County charities


ST. STEPHEN – Located in the historic Masonic Hall in Saint Andrews, Drewhaven Town and Country will be providing the Charlotte County communities with a multitude of products and services including weddings and catering starting in the autumn of 2022.

“It’s a spectacular building,” said Drewhaven owner and international designer Lee Wells.

Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on both Aug. 27 and 28, Drewhaven will host a sale of various items that include antiques.

Over the years, Wells has had many homes, which have caused him to accumulate more possessions than necessary.

“I don’t want to hold onto these items anymore,” he said. “I thought it would be nice if I gave the money to the three charities.”

Proceeds from the antique sale will be split equally between Women in Transition Charlotte County, Charlotte County Food Bank and Dog Rescue Charlotte County.

“I think they need the help,” he said. “All charities need help, but I can’t help everyone. At least I can make a dent in these.”

Some items available at the sale include china, 18th century furniture, artwork, armoires, porcelain and silver.

“Many, many things,” said Wells.

Volunteers from each organization will be present at the two-day event in addition to volunteers from both Saint Andrew and St. Stephen.

Though Drewhaven is not set to officially open until the autumn, they’ve hosted a few functions already as they warm up to host their first wedding on Sept. 3.

“This is an opportunity to buy something nice and do something good,” said Wells.

To support the chosen Charlotte County charities, visit 146 NB- 170 Valley Rd., St. Stephen.
