NSUC Rummage

North Shore Unitarian Church Rummage Sale
Note:  There is no Rummages Sale in Summer of 2014
(312) 857-3555
Each year, members of the NSUC community come together to stage one of the largest rummage sales on the North Shore. New and gently used items donated by congregation members and others are sold  at a large sale on one Saturday each summer. Our goal is to provide useful items at reasonable prices for people who can use them and to keep functional items out of our landfills. The Rummage Sale is a function of the Social Action Committee and eighty percent of the net proceeds of this sale go to agencies that target homelessness and poverty in Lake and Cook Counties. The remaining 20% is allocated to other nominated social and environmental agencies. 



  • No Rummage Sale in Summer of 2014 We are sorry but due to lack of volunteers to plan and stage the Rummage Sale, there will be no sale this summer.  We hope this is just a temporary situation and that we will be able to have another sale in the future.Please check back for updates.
