‘Quarter of a million items’ expected at The Center’s annual Rummage Sale – Chicago Tribune

The Center’s annual Rummage Sale 2017 will be Aug. 25 and 26, one week earlier than usual this year, but the event’s timing won’t change the number of selections for bargain hunters.

Event coordinator Mark Walker said shoppers can expect about 250,000 items to choose from, most of them displayed in the large indoor riding arena at The Center’s Children’s Farm, 12700 Southwest Highway, Palos Park.

“My estimate is about a quarter of a million items,” Walker said. “Kind of what I liken it to is an old-fashioned department store that we built from the ground up for the event. I think it works pretty well.”

Walker said it’s a “you’ve got to see it to believe it” event where “anything and everything” is on sale. In past years, the list has included everything from antique wedding dresses to Zena the Warrior collectible cards.

“You never know what’s coming in,” he said.

Forty to 50 volunteers take days to showcase items on hundreds of tables and mount pictures and decorations on the walls.

All of the items are new inventory from year-to-year, and all of the items are checked out by the volunteers ahead of time so you won’t have to do it. Items unfit to sell are recycled or discarded.

Unique and unusual items that can’t be readily identified go on a “What is it?” table, Walker said. After some research to identify the item, anything that’s not trash could quickly become someone’s treasure.

Buyers won’t find things such as car tires, mattresses, tube television sets or sleeper sofas, but a large furniture tent will be open outside the main building, filled with all kinds of gently-used furniture at bargain prices.

Kids are welcome at this family-friendly event which will feature books and toys, as well as kids and baby clothing.

Hot dogs, water and soft drinks will be available for purchase.

It’s a good idea to get there early, Walker said.

“We’ve had people lining up before7 a.m.,” he said, describing the atmosphere as “frenetic.”

“I think that there is a buzz about people searching out their treasures,” he said. “I think that’s what keeps people coming.”

If you can’t get there early, get there Saturday when prices get reduced as the sale progresses. Walker said he’s been known to “slash prices with my Sharpie” because everything must go.
