Looking for a cheap family outing this weekend? On Saturday, July 19, 2008, Kenilworth Union Church, in Chicago's north shore suburb of Kenilworth, will hold its annual rummage sale from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. This is a great rummage sale, so do stop by. Driving directions are here, and you also can take the Union Pacific Metra North Line to Kenilworth and walk 3 blocks east to the church. Another alternative is to take the CTA purple line "el" to the end of the line in Wilmette, which is the Linden stop, where a free shuttle will take buyers to and from the el station during the hours of sale. Further information about the sale is available by phone at (847) 251-4272.

Don't worry about eating, because there will be plenty of tasty treats for an outdoor lunch, all at a very reasonable cost. Since there are plenty of nice things for the whole family at very cheap prices, this could be a fun Saturday outing for the whole family that won't stress a budget that now has to cover the increases in gas prices and food. On the Metra, kids ride free with parents and a ticket for the whole weekend costs $5.00/person.

As usual, there are very strong offering in women's, children's and infant's clothing, treasures (2 rooms), books, linens, decorative accessories, and items for Christmas and Hallowe'en. Other departments include jewelry; toys; sporting goods; housewares (including hardware); electronics; furniture; china and glass; shoes, purses and accessories; menswear; and baskets.

Tip: If you are looking for luxury goods and items that are still in their original packages or with original price tags, do come very early. These items go fast. But if you choose to sleep in, go anyway, as there are usually plenty of very good things to last all day. Around noon or 1:00, many departments will offer an entire bag of items for a dollar or two. This is particularly a deal in the book department and in clothing.

We have seen some items priced as little as 5 cents and quite a selection for a dime. How good is that? Do come and enjoy yourself, take home some new things very cheaply, and enjoy all the benefits of recycling perfectly good items.

Note: Proceeds from Kenilworth Union Church are used for Chicago area charities.
