Antique & Collectibles Sale

Silver Cross Hospital’s resale shop—the Encore Shop, will hold its annual Antique and Collectibles Sale Friday, Feb. 7 and Saturday, Feb. 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Some of the items available to purchase include vintage teddy bears and dolls, a rare 1949 Falstaff pirate picture, cane-back chair, tea pots, china, crystal, silver pieces, books, retro clothing, quilts, linens, and jewelry.  All proceeds from the Antique Sale benefit Silver Cross Hospital, a not-for-profit health care provider.

The Encore Shop is located in the Hershman Building, 1301 Copperfield Ave., Joliet—on the former Silver Cross Hospital campus.  The store is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and the first Saturday of the month from at 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Donations can be dropped off at the new Encore Shop in Joliet or in the collection bin outside Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox.  For more information, call either the Encore Shop at (815) 300-7642 or Volunteers Services at Silver Cross Hospital at (815) 300-7117. 


For over 50 years the Encore Shop has been operated by a volunteer group of women called the Silver Cross Advisory Board.  In the past 12 years, the Advisory Board has donated more than $950,000 to Silver Cross for the purchase of a variety of medical equipment.  Their most recent donations include the water feature in the Dralle Serenity Garden outside the new Silver Cross Hospital at I-355 and Route 6 in New Lenox and also a Courtesy Shuttle Van to transport patients on the hospital’s campus.  This past October, the group gave $25,000 toward a $125,000 pledge to purchase a Cardiac Echo Machine w/TEE Probe.
