Rummage Sale

What is a Rummage Sale?

A Rummage Sale is like an indoor garage sale. 

Our Parish Hall will look very different on Friday, Sept. 21 and Saturday, Sept. 22! These tables and many more will be holding all kinds of items for sale, from housewares to tools and toys to electronics. We'll have clothing hung on racks. We'll also have items displayed in other areas of the church.


Do you enjoy shopping and finding a great deal? 

You may want to bring a large tote bag to hold your items while you shop.


Some tables will hold items that are the same price. 

We'll have a $1 table, a $2 table, a Make Me An Offer table and so on. 


Checking out...

After you've gathered the things you'd like to take home with you, come to our checkout area. No haggling at the checkout. This is a fundraiser! When you bring an item to the checkout that was on our Make Me An Offer table, please be generous. 


Your payment -- by cash, check, debit or credit card -- will be your donation to Men of Valor, our men's ministry.

 
You can buy items in our Rummage Sale and bid for items in our Silent Auction (info below). 

Silent Auction

What is a Silent Auction?

Every item/collection offered in the Silent Auction will have a bidding sheet with a description of the item(s) at the top. If you'd like to bid for the item(s), you'll write your name, phone number and your bid on the sheet. The highest bidder wins! You don't have to be present to win.

Silent Auction bidding ends at 1:00 on Saturday, Sept. 22

Silent Auction bidding sheets will be picked up at 1:00 on Saturday.

If you're the winner...

You'll be called to let you know that you won the Silent Auction for that item/collection. You must return to St. Anne's and pay for your item by 2:30 P.M. on Saturday or it will be offered to the next-highest bidder. If you bid on Silent Auction items, make sure you're available to pay and pick up your winnings on Saturday afternoon (pay by 2:30; take your items by 3).

What will be in the Silent Auction?

Come to our Silent Auction and bid on a beautiful dining room set (table and six upholstered chairs), custom flower arranging for your wedding/special event, oil paintings, a collection of Creative Memories scrapbook covers and supplies (pictured here) and more....
