ORUUC Rummage "Early Bird" Sale

It's time for the ORUUC Rummage Sale!  The Preview Sale on Friday provides our "early bird" buyers to get first crack at the many wonderful items on sale.  The Preview Sale starts at 6 pm on Friday, September 16.  All prices are doubled during the preview sale.

There wouldn’t be a Rummage Sale without your generous donations! But you can help us greatly reduce work for our volunteers by allowing us to decline some items that we cannot sell in our sale. Your help is needed to dispose of severely damaged items or anything that is wet from rain or floods, etc. with your trash, recycling or hazardous waste service...

  • Anything that is wet from rain or floods, etc. or otherwise damaged.
