North Shore Rummage Sales

Written by: Julia Smolucha

If you love shopping at Kenilworth Union Church’s Rummage sale, you might be interested in knowing more about other Rummage Sales on the North Shore.

Rummage sales have been treasured rituals in Chicago’s North Shore suburbs and surrounding communities for almost 100 years. In addition to Kenilworth Union Church, several dozen other churches, synagogues, and nonprofit groups host sales that raise significant sums to distribute to diverse, deserving outreach agencies and programs. Unsold sale items are donated to select groups to help less-advantaged community members.

North Shore Chicago Rummage, an informal consortium of these sales, provides a list and calendar of many of the oldest, largest high-quality sales. Kenilworth Union Church is a member of North Shore Chicago Rummage.
