April: Wesley Rummage Sale 2022

50 Year Rummage Sale Anniversary Coming in April!!


Dear Members of Wesley,


What started in 1972 as a “white elephant sale” in the parking lot at Wesley United Methodist Church has blossomed into a major community outreach and fundraising event now held at the Interstate Center. Thousands of dollars are raised each year to help support Youth Mission Trips, Youth Choir Tours and funding for United Methodist Women’s mission giving. But there are so many more and just as important benefits from this rummage sale: fellowship and service opportunities for the entire church and providing much needed items to the underserved in our community.


Your closets and garages might be overflowing because our last rummage sale at the Interstate Center was in 2019!! We are expecting and hopeful for an abundance of items to be dropped off this year. So start cleaning out your closets, garages, and basements and bring everything, once again, to the West Expo Building at The Bloomington Interstate Center, located at 2301 West Market Street. The dates for drop off are Monday, April 18 to Thursday, April 21. Drop off hours are as follows:


Monday, April 18 Noon until 9PM we unload your vehicle for you!

Tuesday, April 19 9AM until 9PM “ “

Wednesday, April 20 9AM until 9PM “ “

Thursday, April 21 9AM until 9PM “ “


Other ways to help include:

1) You can join us at the Interstate Center and we’ll find a place for you to work. There are over 30 different departments ranging from Accessories to Toys. Come any day, any time, from 9AM to 9PM. We will have delicious low cost lunches and dinners available each day.

2) You can bake something for our bake sale to be held on sale day. Most popular items are cookies, brownies, breads, party mix, “puppy chow”, etc. Please bring these items in disposable containers to the Interstate Center on Friday, April 22, from 9AM to 6PM. Please . . . no cupcakes, cakes, or items with cream fillings.

3) You can make a donation. If you are unable to be a worker or donate items, we would gratefully appreciate your monetary donation.


Please join us in this wonderful week of fellowship and service at this year’s sale. It is a remarkable experience that we feel you will truly enjoy being a part of, as we share God’s love with so many in our community.


Your 2022 Rummage Sale Chairpersons,
