GREENDALE – The sale that hundreds of rummage sale lovers wait for is about to happen.
It’s the Greendale Entertainment Association fall resale to be held Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 22 and 23, at Greendale High School, 6801 Southway.
Kids from infant through high school are the focus of the sale offering fall and winter clothing, sports equipment, bicycles, children’s furniture such as cribs, strollers and high chairs, and even car seats, Halloween costumes and books. All are gently used.
To better serve shoppers who spend the day at the sale, a cookout with grilled hamburgers and hot dogs will be offered from about 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Tom Neumann, former GEA president, will be the chief chef.
The cookout will be under a tent.
This is the second time the sale will be two days. The first one was in spring and was so successful that organizers will try it again, said village Trustee Donna Ouelette, chairwoman of the sale.
Like this spring, the second day will be half-price, she said.
The sale hours will be 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 22 and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 23.
The sale needs volunteers, Ouelette said. As a perk, they get to shop Friday night before the sale opens to the public. Those interested in volunteering may go to greendaleentertainment.com
The resale event is a fundraiser for the Greendale Entertainment Association that supports the Greendale High School band, cheerleaders, pom pon squad, prom and sports and puts on Saturday night concerts in the gazebo.
Unrelated to the resale at the high school will be the Taste of Greendale event Sunday, Sept. 23, at the Hose Tower being put on by the Greendale Historical Society.
