Each year PAMP hosts a Rummage Sale to help buyers and sellers connect and find new homes for gently used clothes, toys and household items. Join us on this fun day to gather with friends, meet other PAMP members, and recycle treasures.


PAMP Members Sign Up to Sell!

Buying a table at the Annual Rummage Sale is $30, but finding a new home for your “previously loved” items is priceless! This is a great opportunity for PAMP members to sell your gently used children’s clothing, toys, equipment and maternity items, and pick up a few “new to you” things as well. Please review the Rummage Sale Guidelines for Sellers. Space is limited! PAMP members reserve your table through BigTent in the coming weeks, stay tuned. We’ll announce when table sales start.

At the end of the day, sellers may donate unsold items to Blossom Birth. Blossom Birth will have a designated area to accept donations and will provide donation receipts for tax purposes. Please note they accept clothes (6T and under), toys, books, and maternity. They are unable to accept larger items like bikes, furniture, etc.


Get First Dibs When You Volunteer!

Get in the door early at 8:10am when you volunteer – we need help to set up, clean up, greet people at the door.  Join the team and be a VOLUNTEER for one of PAMP’s largest events AND fulfill your two-hour volunteer commitment at the same time! We will post volunteer signups shortly, stay tuned.


Thank you to our Generous Sponsors!
