Trends come and go but the quest for high quality fashions, antiques, and one-of-a-kind finds never goes out of style.
Next Saturday, October 5, North Shore United Methodist Church will host its annual rummage sale with the theme of “Go Green in Glencoe.” It’s said to be one of the largest yet with upscale merchandise donated from throughout the local community.
“This is a wonderful way to gather our congregation to implement our mission of ‘love, serve, and renew!’” says Reverend Scott S. Himel. “The camaraderie of our members to ‘Go Green in Glencoe’ with their recycling, as they gather, sort, and sell for this fund-raiser truly embodies the values of our church.”
Organizers invite the public to “find their light” by selecting at least one new or gently used item from a vast selection of luxury merchandise. The sale goes from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. but get there early for the best deals.
Items will be organized by category with such rooms as: Men’s Clothing; Women’s Clothing; Children’s Department; Furniture; Housewares; Art, Books & Holiday Department; Shoes; and Linens. There will also be coffee, donuts, and hot dog plates available for sale, as well as a bake sale featuring cookies, cakes, pies, and brownies.
Think designer gowns and shoes, antique furniture, and other high-end items you can snag for a fraction of the original price. And, it’s all for a good cause. Not only are you recycling and repurposing, you’re supporting a local ministry.
“All our items are priced to sell!” explains Reverend Dr. Barbara Javore. “Funds raised from the rummage sale make it possible to enrich the ministry of North Shore United Methodist Church through outreach efforts in our community and the world,”
