Wellesley Village Church rummage sale
November 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Wellesley Village Church at 2 Central Street in Church Square will host its 77th annual Rummage Sale on Saturday, November 3, 9am – 1pm. Each year savvy shoppers flock to this bargain haul to search the “pop-up” shops for women’s clothing and accessories, jewelry, furniture, menswear, kitchenware, antiques and treasures, children’s, toys, and more.
The Chic Boutique is a big favorite, specializing in higher-end women’s designer clothing, purses and shoes. Last year featured Prada, Armani, D & G, Michael Kors, Burberry, Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman, Vera Bradley, Bottega Venita, Tory Burch, Ann Taylor, and many more.
The treasures, furniture and antiques are also popular. “I normally don’t go to rummage sales, but this one is totally worth it. Last year I got a very cool vintage mirror and a gorgeous wooden serving bowl,” said Kathy Hastings of Natick.
More than 100 volunteers work tirelessly to make this sale phenomenal, said Rummage Sale co-chair Cherie Hoffman. “After 77 years, we’ve raised more than $350,000 for charity and have helped a lot of people.” The 2017 proceeds of $22,000 were donated to local charities such as Family Promise MetroWest, Wellesley ABC house, H.O.M.E, The Walker School, Women’s Lunch Place and more.
The entry fee is $2.00. Doors open at 9am on Saturday, but the early-birds get there at 8am to be the first in line.
