Church Rummage Sales
There is an old fashioned elegance to a church rummage sale, quietly occurring decade after decade in churches throughout New England. Yet, they seem surprisingly contemporary with our new focus on re-using and recycling. And one need not even be a church go-er to partake in this tradition.
All parties win with this scenario: People who donate have a nice excuse for a clear out. Young families, or bargain hunters in general, are able to get high quality items. (People can be more willing to donate better items knowing that proceeds benefit the church's programs.) And the church itself benefits year after year with this more predictable stream of income.
