Those crazy St. Michael’s ladies are at it again! Every year at this time the Episcopal Church Women organization of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church challenges the membership of the church to clean out their kitchens and garages, their attics and storerooms to produce a treasure trove of household items and collectibles for St. Michael’s Annual Rummage Sale. This year’s sale profits are designated for the organ fund.
St. Michael’s is a small church with a big heart. The ECW has focused its outreach attention this year on some of the soldiers serving in Afghanistan. The group will assemble Christmas boxes for the troops to be shipped at the end of this month. In addition to magazines, silly toys, and heat-stable candies, the ECW ladies are including jerky from a local producer that will certainly be received with joy by the soldiers. The ongoing outreach led by the ECW is to serve Meals on Wheels during the month of December each year and adopting a needy family at Christmas.
This year the sale will be held in the Little White House adjacent to the church property. The sale inventory includes small furniture pieces, artwork, picture frames, Christmas tins and decorations, stemware, small kitchen appliances, baskets, vases, glassware, collectibles, children’s equipment and toys. There are sheets, pillows, comforters, books, magazines and more. There are also tools, camp stools, and outdoor items. Although clothing is not sold at the sale, accessories are. There are men’s belt buckles, women’s purses, silk scarves, and some ‘like new’ shoes.
The sale date is Saturday, October 16, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. St. Michael’s is located at 218 Pittsburg Street. To get there, go east at the light, cross over the bridge and take the first left on Singleton. The church is at the end of that street.
