Last Day for Intake for (Christ The) King’s Rummage Sale is Today; Sale Takes Place Sept. 17, 18

Furniture donations are welcome for the King’s Rummage Sale.

OLD LYME — The end of summer is fast approaching. Are you cleaning closets, organizing cupboards, or clearing out clutter?  Are you moving or downsizing and don’t know what to do with all the stuff you’ve accumulated? 

Christ the King Church in Old Lyme does not want you to send your gently-used household items to the dump. They suggest you upcycle your goods by donating them to the King’s Rummage Sale at Christ the King Church’s Harvest Festival. 

Donations are being accepted through Saturday, Sept. 10, from 9 a.m. to noon (except Labor Day Weekend), at Christ the King Church, 1 McCurdy Rd., Old Lyme (Parish Hall entrance).

All donated items should be in good condition: working, clean, and saleable. No clothes, shoes, or textbooks can be accepted. (Visit for a complete list of items that cannot be accepted.

Email or call the parish office (860-434-1669) if you have large or upholstered items to donate.

Book donations will be gratefully received.

The annual Harvest Festival takes place at Christ the King Church (1 McCurdy Rd., Old Lyme) on Saturday, Sept. 17,  from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and features the rummage sale, a silent auction, a bake sale, kids’ games and crafts, great food, live music, and an autumn plant sale.

The rummage sale, bake sale, and plant sale will continue Sunday morning, Sept.18, from 9 a.m. to noon (with rummage sale items half price, while supplies last.)

Ceramics are a popular donation item for the Rummage Sale.
