RUMC’s upscale garage sale July 25-26



ROSWELL, Ga. ⎯ The Roswell United Methodist Church (RUMC) will hold its sixth annual upscale garage sale.

The sale will include items such as furniture, sporting goods and clothing. Upscale means that the items will be in good condition, said Ann Gordon of RUMC.

“We are trying to be more conscious of having nice things,” Gordon said.

The sale will be held on Friday, July 25 and Saturday, July 26 in the RUMC fellowship hall.

An early bird sale will be held from 4 to 7 p.m., Thursday, July 24 for a $10 donation.

The proceeds will benefit RUMC’s missions and job networking program. The church has received national attention for their job networking program, including the Wall Street Journal, ABC News with Diane Sawyer and Clark Howard’s “Primetime Show.”

The program includes workshops, mini job fairs and guest speakers.

“It is huge and it’s just a big ministry,” said Gordon.

Volunteers are needed to work Monday, July 21 through Saturday, July 26 at various times.

Volunteers are eligible to shop during the early bird sale, too.

Donations can be made 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 20 or 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, July 21 through Wednesday, July 23 at the church, 814 Mimosa Boulevard in Roswell.

Cash is accepted. New this year, credit cards will be accepted with a $2 fee.

Delivery is also available.

Gordon said the sale helps the community by offering items at a low price. She recalls being told that it is “the mother of all garage sales” and families will plan their vacations around the sale.
