St. Bede’s semi-annual rummage sale offers clothes, shoes, books, CDs, household items, toys, knickknacks, craft items and more — you never know what treasures you’ll find — plus free refreshments. The church promises prices that are famously low and friendly volunteers to help you find what you are looking for.
The sale takes place in Lehman Hall, the first building on right as you enter the church parking lot off Monte Rosa Dr., on the south side of Sand Hill Road, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
No early birds please: There is a 12-step meeting in the Hall until about 10:30am, but you are welcome to sit in the courtyard and enjoy lemonade or coffee until the sale opens.
All sales will help fund an annual Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance nursing scholarship in Malawi, which provides tuition, books, supplies and a stipend to a young woman. She commits to serving an equal number of years in the country — thousands may be helped by her care.
Any funds above $1,300 ($600 has already been raised) will benefit local nonprofits, including Ecumenical Hunger Project.
