Wilmette French Market and St. John's Rummage Sale 5/1/2010
A number of visitors have ended up at this blog looking for info on a "Wilmette Rummage Sale." I imagine what they are looking for is the one that will be held this weekend, May 1, 2010, at St. John's Lutheran Church. The hours are 7 am to 2 pm. (click here for a review from an earlier sale) Since it is located about a block away from the Wilmette Metra Train Station (which can also be reached by taking a bus from the Linden stop on the CTA Purple Line--just ask the driver), it is well located for shoppers who arrive via public transportation. St. John's Lutheran Church is just a few steps away from Greenbay Road, which also has a bus. (Click here to go to the church's website). There is a big sign advertising the sale in front of the church, which is on Wilmette Avenue, one block west of Greenbay. If you arrive by Metra, cross Greenbay Road and head south (toward the skyscrapers you can see in the distance) until you reach Wilmette Avenue, one block away. You will see the sign for Millen's Hardware, and the church is next to that. If you are driving, you can park in the train parking lot, which is free on Saturdays.
