Hundreds of Humboldt residents attend Rummage Sale

Eureka, Ca., (KIEM) One of Humboldt County’s biggest fundraisers of the year had over 1000 Humboldt residents show up.

Its this year’s Rummage Sale hosted at the Redwood Acres.

The foot-traffic was plentiful as locals showed up as early as 9 Saturday morning creating a line out of the door.

There were three buildings full of furniture, houseware, jewelry and much more.

The organizers of the rummage sale use this sale as a fundraising initiative to benefit the youth of Humboldt County. Participants said this is not only a fundraiser for the kids but also a benefit to the community.

“A lot of people depend on it,” said Redwood Service Unit Director Cheryl Kingham of Girl Scouts of Northern California. “There are a lot of low-income people who can get some great deals, in fact, I just checked out a man who got $90 worth of clothes and it was a pretty big pile. He’s probably buying clothes for three or four kids and that’s a way to help the community make ends meet as well as raise money for a good cause. It does both.”
