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. Here are some photos from last year’s event:



PAMP Members Sign Up to Sell – reserve your table through BigTent NOW!

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. This year we will be increasing our advertising prior to the event, so we expect more buyers to attend!

Click here to sign up for a table. Sign up today, as space is limited!

Please review the Rummage Sale Guidelines for Sellers to be sure you know what is expected of you.

At the end of the day, sellers may donate unsold items. We will have a designated area to accept donations (we are working with local nonprofits on this now) and will provide donation receipts for tax purposes. There may be limitations on what can be donated, once we have the program finalized we’ll share with all sellers.


Get First Dibs When You Volunteer!

PAMP is led by volunteers; we rely on volunteers to make our events work and build our community. 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!  We will post volunteer signups shortly, stay tuned. In the meantime, if you wish to volunteer, please email


Thank you to our Sponsors

Location: The Pavilion in Cubberley Community Center in Palo Alto is a 10,000 sq ft gym and is located at 4000 Middlefield Road.  The cross streets are San Antonio Road and Charleston.

Parking: Click on the Cubberley map – the dark gray areas show parking spaces.  But just so you know here are best parking spots:

  • Main lot in front of the building, that is between the Middlefield Road and the Pavilion.
  • Main lot can be accessed by turning off of Middlefield at Montrose into the lot
  • A large lot behind the Pavilion – once you pass the Pavilion and make a right turn you will see it.

It is ok to bring an extra signage to place around your table. Please note that there is an area where there is no ramp, you will have to carry your items up 3 stairs to get them inside from the loading area.

Check Out Procedures: We ask that you stay until the end of the sale. The sale ends at 12pm. Tear-down after the sale ends is 1 hour. Please make sure your area is completely vacant by 1pm. Before you leave, you need to clean up your table and surrounding area, and pack up all marketing materials.

Checklist of Items to Bring

  • Promotional materials (banner or sign to hang on your table, name cards, fliers, etc.), pens, a sign up sheet, tape and whatever needed to hang up your stuff.
  • Hand truck to carry any heavy items
  • Bottled water (don’t forget to hydrate!)
  • Extra hands if you can get them!
