“We see it as a sentimental way for us to share Barbara’s collection with the Community she loved while raising money for the organization she founded and poured her heart and soul into for over 50 years,'' said Tom Reed, Unity’s Executive Director. “Among her last requests was for Unity Shoppe to be as free and clear of debt as possible, and this is one way we are able to honor that wish."

The estate sale will be on September 25 and 26 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The sale will be at 679 Mission Canyon Road in Santa Barbara.
