Our Next Rummage Sale

Saturday, April 28, 2018

Celebrating Our 75th!

First Parish’s annual Rummage Sale has been a Wayland institution since 1944 when it was introduced by our Women’s Alliance. Here you’ll find top-quality toys, books and clothing for all ages, antiques, furniture, jewelry, linens, kitchenware and housewares, lawn and garden, small appliances and sporting goods. In The Dollar Shop, nothing costs more than a dollar! The Bake Shop will offer coffee and baked goods to enjoy while you shop, plus homemade treats to take home.

The gates open at 9:00 a.m. — at the stroke of our Paul Revere bell — and the Sale closes at 1:00 p.m. Admission from 9-9:30 a.m. is $6 and then it’s reduced to $3. Children are free with an adult. Except for several handicap parking spots, parking is NOT available in the church parking lot. Please park in the public parking lot behind the Wayland Town Building. A police officer will help visitors cross the street to the Sale. Our buildings are fully accessible, with ramps to our side entrance and an elevator that provides access to both buildings.

Sign up

If you’d like to donate goods…..

Simplify your life! Donate your gently used items and get a tax write off. Proceeds from the sale help support First Parish and deserving charities. Please sort your donations by department and edit them to help us avoid expensive dumpster fees. You can drop off items beginning the Sunday before the Sale, through Wednesday. We take items that are clean and in working order, including antiques, furniture, jewelry, linens, kitchenware and housewares, lawn and garden items, small appliances, sporting goods, clothing for all ages and fun accessories.

Please note that we take antiques and collectibles on consignment. Contact John Thompson with inquiries.

We can’t take the following because we can’t sell them: computers and printers, toys with missing parts, dirty or broken items, textbooks, upholstered couches, mattresses, office furniture, refrigerators, exercise machines, straight skis, used shoes and TVs.

We also need paper and plastic bags of all sizes, card tables and heavy dry-cleaning hangers.

Questions? Contact Kathie Cromwell.
