For more than 22 years, the Clifton Center has brought art, music and much more to the Louisville community, as well as given homes to a handful of nonprofits throughout the years.

As Insider first reported in April, the center will close at the end of the year as the Archdiocese of Louisville, which owns the building at 2117 Payne St., will re-purpose it into a school for children with learning differences.

While members of the board are still optimistic about the organization’s future — whether it be in a new space, at various venues or even utilizing the Eifler Theatre inside the building, which will still be available for community use — they recognize a need to downsize.

On Saturday, Nov. 11, the center will host an estate sale from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Clifton Center Community Room. The event is free, and all items sold must be taken that day.

So what’s included in the sale? Interim Executive Director Cynthia Adelberg tells Insider there are more than 1,500 items that’ll be for sale on Saturday, and that includes everything from comfy chairs from the green room and office furnishings to concert posters, a printer that prints those oversized posters, tables, a bar, kitchenware and lots more.

If you’ve patronized the Clifton Center over the years and would like to have a keepsake, Saturday is your chance take home the memories.

One of the last concerts to be held at the venue will be the Jim James solo show on Friday, Nov. 17, which is, unfortunately (or fortunately for those who bought tickets early), sold out.
