The Last Catlin Gabel Rummage Sale

Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I had been talking about the annual Catlin Gabel Rummage Sale, often billed as the World's Largest Rummage Sale. (smile) All proceeds from the sale go to benefit the Catlin Gabel School. We both knew it falls this first week of November, so I decided to look it up.

I was shocked to discover that this will be the last year of the event. You can read about it here: The Last, Best Rummage Sale. Unfortunately, that's NOT a permalink, so it may disappear later on... But OregonLive.Com has a story here: Catlin Gabel School to end popular rummage sale, and that IS a permalink.

I'd love to go, but can't see how. Marilyn isn't really a fan even when she's feeling well, and sister Sue suzy_qp has another cribbage tournament this weekend (as I mentioned before), her fourth weekend in a row.

We got some nice things there over the years, I have to say. I can't recall the last year I actually attended, but I'm still sorry to see it end. Well, times change, that's for sure.
