Fifty years ago, in October 1964, a new shop opened its doors in Old Greenwich and in October that anniversary was celebrated as The Rummage Room marked the milestone.

The Rummage Room, is celebrating 50 years in the same location by providing funds that support many worthy missions and charities. Located at 191 Sound Beach Avenue, this little shop is now well-known and loved in the community.

The idea of this little shop started well before 1964 when a large rummage sale was held twice yearly at The First Congregational Church of Greenwich. It became so popular that it eventually needed a permanent space. That’s when The Rummage Room moved to its location on Sound Beach Avenue and became “the best little shop in town” according to the church.

Today, still operated by the Women’s Fellowship of the church, The Rummage Room is a great place to find a bargain, donate your new or gently used items and/or make a tax deductible donation. Over the past 50 years, The Rummage Room has been responsible for contributing over 4 million dollars to local, national and international benevolent organizations focused on helping women, children and families.

Come by all this month and help us celebrate The Rummage Room turning 50 years old. Donations of gently used items are also always appreciated. The shop hours are Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The donation hours are Monday to Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Friday to Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
