Rummage has not reopened to receive donations.
Next sale will be Saturday, October 16, 8am-2pm.

Giving what we have, to do what we can, for people who need it most.

First held in 1902, this year marks the 88th consecutive year for Winnetka Congregational Church Rummage. Initiated by a group of determined and inspired women who felt called to give what they had to help care for people outside the walls of the church building, the sale welcomes volunteers and shoppers from both the congregation and the surrounding community.

Through the years,  the Rummage Sale has become a Winnetka tradition, raising millions of dollars to benefit 45 social service agencies in the Chicago area, providing prevention, crisis and recovery services to underserved people.

Want to get involved?


One of the largest rummages sales in the area, with over 25 departments, we’re always looking for donations of new or gently used kids, teen, and adult clothing, contemporary & designer wear, outerwear, shoes, fashion accessories, housewares, furniture, rugs, lamps, sporting goods, toys, books and music, electronics, pictures, linens, dishes, china and crystal, vintage items, jewelry and more.

Please note that due to the ongoing pandemic, Rummage drop-off remains closed.


As you can imagine, we also need lots of volunteers to help us manage and run our Spring and Fall rummage sales. For those who’ve volunteered in the past it’s often been one of the most fulfilling… and fun… things they do all year. We would love to have you join the team. Just email us and someone will be in touch.


And if you just want to shop the sale, that’s a great thing too. There are two sales annually: the second Thursday in May and the third Saturday in October. Not only will you discover some amazing finds here, the net proceeds will benefit so many people who need it most throughout Chicagoland. So everything you buy will be a part of making life a little better for someone else.
