According to organizer Wendy Mesich, the sale will be the most bountiful one to date.

"This year is going to be the best yet, with live music, children's games, a bake sale and food prepared by both the church parishioners and the Coop Café," says Mesich.

The rummage sale runs Friday, July 15 from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hot and cold sandwiches, including Polish sausage and vegan burgers, will enhance the shopping experience.

Proceeds from this year's sale will go towards a new computerized checkout system. Mesich says they will also save a portion of the money to cover winter expenses.

In the past, rummage sale proceeds helped pay for the Coop Café, a cozy eatery connected to the co-op that opened last year inside the building located at 733 E. Clarke St.

"The Riverwest Coop's annual rummage sale has quickly become a neighborhood tradition," says Mesich. "We always get amazing items donated, and we take the time to weed through the less then desirable junk so you don't have to!"
