DEAR SUN SPOTS: I wonder if your readers remember old-fashioned rummage sales (prior to garage sales)?

For years the YWCA would hold a spring rummage sale to raise money for repairs and needed equipment. Donations of clothing, toys, books, furniture and housewares were brought in and sold on a Saturday by YWCA volunteers.

On June 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. old-fashioned rummage sale will be held at the YWCA at 130 East Ave., Lewiston.

Sun Spots’ readers can drop off items at the YWCA or call me at 783-6651 for pickup. Thanks so much for being a voice for area events! — Mary Ann, [email protected]
