Rummage sale held at First Parish

Rummage sale logo

The extensive First Parish rummage sale, the second annual May Yard Fest, will be held indoors and out on Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Donations for sale items accepted through May 6.

Like Arlington’s PorchFest, the May Yard Fest features yard sales throughout the Arlington Center Jason Street area.

Like last year, those involved are doing Harvest Moon Fair, yard-sale-style, with locations for books, jewelry, electronics, plants and outdoor equipment and more. Basically, this is "our  church rummage sale in yard-sale form."

Leftovers from a move? Old computer left over from an upgrade? Someone got you jewelry that you have absolutely no intention of ever wearing and want to make sure it gets to a total stranger that you'll never see again?  Bring it on.

Most can be dropped off at First Parish vestry room, but, like last year, many can be left at their destination home. For details, including a map of the locations and drop-off instructions, check out the website >>

Volunteers needed

We have the regular assortment of odds and ends at our Attic Treasures table, but we also have specialized locations that focus on jewelry, games / toys, plants and outdoor equipment, electronics, and books.  We even have Christmas stuff!

In terms of donations there are some no-nos: no clothing, no furniture (or other large items that are difficult to dispose of), no medical devices, no CDs / DVDs/ VHS tapes or organizers.  

 We accept:

jewelry (even costume stuff)

electronics (the newer the better, no monitors 14 inches or below, no cd / dvd / vhs players)

books (sorted into fiction, non-fiction, young adult)

plants, garden tools, outdoor equipment

kitchen items


Baked goods are great. Individually wrapped cake pieces, cookies (tow to four in a set), scones, etc.  We sell everything.
