Keep CALM and Find a Rummage Sale
Some of my kids’ most-played-with toys are items I have picked up at garage sales! To me, finding a good deal is like winning the mommy jackpot. I thrive on a good morning of rummage shopping and coffee. Plus, most rummage sale finds are new or gently used items.
Spring is upon us, which means it is Rummage time. Whether you are planning to participate in one or if you are making your “rummage wish list” like me, it’s sometimes hard to know when and where to go. That’s why Lake Country Family Fun has created a Rummage Sale Guide. We wanted a central, non-cluttered location for local Rummage Sales especially the bigger church and/or neighborhood rummages.
How to list your Rummage Sale in this Guide
We welcome rummage sale additions to this guide, in fact, we encourage it! Please fill out the form at the bottom of this guide with your rummage information. Our focus will be larger rummage sales, not one-house ones. Rummage sale details in italics below mean we are awaiting further information on specifics.
As you read this guide, please be aware that Rummage Sales may change. Please verify sale before attending.
