Call it a yard sale, a rummage sale or even a “rubbage” sale (as you might have seen us announce through social media). Either way, our rummage sale—held on Sunday, Aug. 25 from 10 am to 2 pm at Kedzie and Palmer—was a success. We pocketed a little money for our organization (now an LLC!), parted with a few personal treasures and enjoyed watching the buzz of the neighborhood on a shady spot on near Palmer Square.
It was a sweltering day, with temperatures reaching more than 90 degrees, but that didn’t seem to keep too many people indoors. We were visited by curious cyclists passing through, strolling couples with an eye for unique home goods, families whose kids spotted our meager toy and game selection, and the occasional bleary-eyed bargain hunter who couldn’t resist our ridiculously low prices. (No haggling required!)
Our sale included everything from women’s and men’s clothes and shoes to funky, one-of-a-kind decorative pieces worthy of either a squeal or a shudder, depending on your tastes. We even parted with a cardboard deer head—who knew there was a market for that?!
Many thanks to all the neighbors who came out and supported us. We had a great time interacting with the people of Logan Square and were reminded that the neighborhood is quite alive with activity even early on a Sunday morning, when many of us are usually still sleeping off the fun from the night before.
