Are you experiencing “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” in the style of Mari Kondo and the KoMari Method? Or perhaps you’ve decided to try “The Gentle Swedish Art of Death Cleaning,” by Margareta Magnusson? Whatever your method, the Lincoln City Cultural Center can help. This week, the nonprofit center’s volunteers are accepting good, clean, pre-loved items for the LCCC’s ninth annual Winter Rummage Sale.
Donations will be accepted from noon to 4 p.m. today (Wednesday), Jan. 16, and Thursday, Jan. 17, at the east entrance of the LCCC, located at 540 NE Highway 101 in Lincoln City. The sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18, and Saturday, Jan. 19, at the same location. Lunch will be served both days.
“We’ll take your used items – clean and in good repair – and turn them into concerts, art shows, workshops and children’s programs,” said LCCC executive director Niki Price. “Some of us may be using the KoMari method, but there are others who are looking for a jacket, a good book or a lovely piece of art, or a basket to hold your shoes at the door. And our Winter Rummage Sale can help all those folks. Got a box full of books about household organization, and a whole bunch of plastic bins you thought might help but never did? Bring them over. We need donations of great stuff, and a lot of shoppers, too.”
All proceeds from this annual event will fund the operations of the cultural center, funding concerts, exhibits, classes, children’s programs and much more. The LCCC was the venue for nearly 400 programs in 2018, its busiest year on record, and the arts and culture will keep on coming through 2019. Bringing in an annual windfall of around $5,000, the Winter Rummage Sale is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year.
