PAMP members and non-members spent this past Sunday (Mar. 19) finding deals at the 2017 PAMP Rummage Sale.
Held at Cubberley Community Center in Palo Alto, at least 200 people came out to shop for previously loved children’s toys and games, maternity and kid’s clothes, household items and baby gear.
PAMP-member volunteer Ashwini Parsana has volunteered at the Rummage Sale for the past three years, taking advantage of the incentive to get in early.
“I’ve been part of PAMP for three years and I volunteer for every Rummage Sale,” she said. “It’s a great incentive that we get to shope early if we volunteer and it’s a great way to meet new parents. When you’re volunteering you get to socialize a little, you get to shop a little. I just enjoy it every year.”
Volunteers got access 15 minutes prior to the doors opening at 8:30 a.m. and some, like Ashwini, knew exactly what they were looking for.
“I found lots of books and toys and clothes,” she said, noting that in addition to shopping for her daughter, she was searching for things for her sister, who recently had a baby.
There was “tons of stuff and tons of age groups and varieties,” she said, adding that there was “something for everyone.”
PAMP’s next event is Spring Fun Day at the Farm on Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Click here for more information or to register.
