For the 76th year in a row, the ladies of St. Patrick Catholic Church in Placerville will be holding their annual rummage sale.

‘I’his sale features quality items and merchandise, much of it in like-new condition. It is also a great opportunity to do some back-to-school shopping.

The parish ladies have been sorting, cleaning, polishing and pricing all manner of items donated by the community.

Children’s clothes and backpacks are in good supply and ready for the first day of school. All clothing is clean and in good condition.

Kitchen items and small appliances are ready for any college bound student to set up housekeeping.

There is also the antique and collectible table. Organizers point out that this sale always has something for the collector.
For those into crafts and sewing, the choices are almost unlimited.
Every household can always use another crescent wrench or socket set and there are plenty of tools to browse through.
For the younger set there are plenty of toys for fun and recreation.
There is something for everyone at the 76th annual St. Patrick Ladies’ Society rummage sale set for  Thursday, Aug. 1 from 9 a.m to 6 p.m.; Friday, Aug. 2 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, Aug.3 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Saturday, Aug.3, is also Bag Day where shoppers pay a $1 for everything that can be placed in a grocery bag. Come early for the best stuff — it’s worth it.
The sale will be held at the St. Patrick Parish Hall, 3109 Sacramento St. in Placerville.
