Friday last day to register for Town-Wide Rummage Sale

ISHPEMING — Friday is the deadline to register for the Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Area Chamber of Commerce’s Town-Wide Rummage Sale, set to take place June 7-9.

The GINCC began this event in 2013 to unite communities and neighbors throughout western Marquette County, all while helping people purge their closets, garages and storage units. The event has become a hit in the last few years with chamber members and community members alike, according to a GINCC press release.

How does it work? Residents of Ishpeming, Negaunee, Champion, Republic, Michigamme and the surrounding townships are all welcome to participate. For a $10 registration fee, residents can sign up to be put on a location list, which gets sectioned off into categories like “Downtown Ishpeming,” “Negaunee Township,” “West Ishpeming” or “Champion” to make sales easier to find.

In each section, the list will contain the location where each sale will take place, each sale’s top three items and the days/hours each sale will run. Participants are free to set their own hours for their sales. Names, phone numbers and email addresses will not be published.

The deadline to register for the Town-Wide Rummage Sale is Friday. The list of registered rummage sale locations will be made available at the chamber office and on the chamber website, once addresses are finalized.

The chamber office will not be open during the Saturday and Sunday of the sale, and each participant is responsible for their own sale.

To sign up, go to gincc.org and fill in the form, stop in the chamber, email ginccmarketing@gmail.com, call GINCC at 906-486-1111 or check out the Facebook page, www.facebook.com/GINCCTownwideRummageSale.

The $10 fee must be paid no later than Friday in order to be included on the list.
