Twice a year in the spring and fall, Thrift & Gift Shop Board oversees a parish-wide Rummage Sale. Items not sold through the Thrift & Gift Shop as well as countless items donated by parishioners and the larger community fill the Parish Hall. Our very reasonable prices mean great bargains! Besides delighting eager shoppers, rummage sales are a gift to the environment. Re-purpose, re-use, recycle!
Whatever we don’t sell, we donate to charitable organizations. All profits from the Rummage Sale are held by the Thrift Shop until the shop profits are distributed. The shop profits are distributed in June and January.
During rummage sale week, volunteers sort and arrange the items and then staff the sale, which takes place on the Friday evening and Saturday of rummage week. Saturday is always an all-day Bag Sale. We welcome volunteers with varieties of skills: pleasant manner, calculator skills, sorting skills, ability to direct parking, security, clean-up, and general crowd control.
