La Jolla church promises bargains galore at 53rd annual rummage sale

La Jolla United Methodist Church will hold its 53rd annual rummage sale from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, March 9, throughout the church campus at 6063 La Jolla Blvd. Items will sell for half-price after 1:30 p.m.

The proceeds will benefit several charities supported by the church, including missions for women and children, and the LJUMC Nursery School scholarship fund.

The sale doubles as a community event and includes the chance to find bargains in many different merchandise departments, enjoy hamburgers and homemade cakes on the patio, and chat with neighbors.

Among the items for sale will be furniture, housewares, clothing, Christmas items, books, toys and infant care.

A crew of “sorters” has been working throughout the year sorting and pricing the goods. This year, more than 50 volunteers helped move the rummage from various storage areas to the various selling areas, and more than 100 people will work at the sale.

At the end of the day, members of Scout Troop 506 will arrive to help with cleanup to get the grounds ready for Sunday worship the next day. Questions? Call (858) 454-7108 or visit
