What can YOU do for the Rummage Sale? — SAVE, DONATE, VOLUNTEER!!

It takes a village, sometimes, doesn’t it? Your donations and time make the rummage sale work. The proceeds from this event benefit St. Hugo School and 21 other charities within Southeast Michigan!

We have listed below some guidelines which may help you determine how you can help make this year’s Rummage Sale the best ever:

  • Donate Priority Items
    If you are donating really nice clothing or other items, please mark it “PRIORITY.” This notation will indicate that we should take extra care of it. Perhaps it could end up in one of our special areas where it will raise even more money, such as:
  • Boutique — A sizeable room with a combination of everything, but filled with more delicate, designer, and finer items.  
  • Silent Auction — This room takes Boutique one step further and provides a private space for buyers to look at and bid on the most expensive donation pieces. Previous auctions have included priceless antiques, vintage dolls, fine china, fur coats, painted and sculpted artwork, custom furniture, estate jewelry, and more. For these donations, please call Norma Keller at (248) 935-1281 ASAP!
  • Better Clothing — Let’s give those designer jeans and other items the visibility they deserve!

Items we are looking for that you may not have considered:

  • Lawn & Garden equipment
  • Live, potted plants & flowers
  • Small appliances that work
  • Toys
  • Linens
  • Holiday items
  • Sporting goods of all kinds
  • Plus, items for over 20 departments

If you don’t want to donate “rummage,” you could also donate:
