The Annual MCH Auxiliary Rummage Sale has been held at a variety of locations over it’s 65+ year history including store fronts, a bus barn, the American Legion, and most notably at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Arlington, NE. Over the years, thousands of shoppers have attended the sale. Donated items are split into various departments, including clothing, books, dishes, furniture, linens, notions, shoes, toys, cards, and jewelry. The MCH Auxiliary works hard to ensure all leftover items are recycled or repurposed so that very little from the sale gets thrown away. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed! Please contact Kim Dutton at 402-426-2030 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering.
Rummage Sale 2022 : Covid-19 and the economy changed many events including the annual Rummage Sale. The Auxiliary Board of Directors decided the 2022 Rummage Sale will change course from prior years due to lower donations in the warehouse and fewer volunteers. This year the Rummage Sale will be held at the City of Blair Public Works Building at 341 Grant Street in Blair, Nebraska. The sale will be September 15-17th, Thursday 9am-7pm, Friday 9am-7pm, and Saturday (Bag Sale Only) from 9am-1pm. All departments will be combined into one building.
The Auxiliary may continue to hold a smaller sale(s) through the year at a different location. Please follow the MCH Auxiliary Closet Facebook page for up to date information or call the Thrift Store at 402-426-2030 and ask for Kim if you have further questions.
