Huge rummage sale turns 50 years old this weekend

April 17th, 2012 · No Comments

Anyone would be hard-pressed to think of a neighborhood tradition that’s half a century old (outside the UW campus, of course). But this week, the members of the University Congregational UCC are putting the finishing touches on the 50th annual Superfluity Sale. Budget conscious shoppers will find kitchen items, decorations, bedding, small furniture, lamps, plants and much more.

The sale started as a white elephant gift exchange back in March 1962. It has since raised more than $450,000 dollars for charities that support vulnerable children, youth and women.

You can check it out at 4515 16th Ave. N.E. Here’s the schedule:
