Taylor Thomas At White House Spring Liquidation Sale

Everyone certainly is familiar with 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  But have you ever heard of the White House Historical Association?  It’s been around for over 55 years and today the Association held a rare one-day spring liquidation sale.  We had a chance to get an up close and personal look at some of the items.  The sale featured a wide range of White House inspired merchandise, including White House Christmas ornaments, fun children’s toys, classic jewelry and accessories, and captivating books.  Today’s sale ran from 9am to 5pm and was open to the public.

The White House Historical Association was the brainchild of then First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.  She envisioned a restored White House that conveyed a sense of history through its decorative and fine arts. She sought to inspire Americans, especially children, to explore and engage with American history and its presidents. In 1961, the White House Historical Association was established to support her vision to preserve and share the Executive Mansion’s legacy for generations to come.

Supported entirely by private resources, the Association’s mission is to assist in the preservation of the state and public rooms, fund acquisitions for the White House permanent collection, and educate the public on the history of the White House. Since its founding, the Association has given more than $45 million to the White House in fulfillment of its mission.
