Market for Missions

Market for Missions

2020 Market for Missions has been cancelled.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and our concern for the safety of our volunteers and community, the Market for Missions Planning Team has decided to cancel this year’s Market for Missions.

We hope you will join us next year for the 2021 Market Missions!  You will find bargains galore as you shop over 9,000 sq. ft. of merchandise! You not only get great deals, but you get the good feeling knowing that all your purchases will make a difference in someone’s life. All proceeds benefit missions.

The Market for Missions garage sale has new and used items in the following departments: Antiques & Collectibles, Baby Equipment, Books & Media, Children’s Clothing, Crafts, Electronics, Furniture, Holiday Decorations, Housewares, Jewelry, Linens, Men’s Clothing, Pictures and Wall Décor, Sporting Goods, Tableware, Tools, Toys, Women’s Clothing & Accessories

Save these 2021 dates!

Set up dates:  Sunday, June 6 to Thursday,  June 10
Donation dates:  Sunday, June 6 to Wednesday, June 9
Sale dates:  Friday, June 11 and Saturday, June 12
Clean up date:  Saturday, June 12 at noon

Many volunteers are needed and check back on this website in the near future for signing up to volunteer.

What should I do with the donations I’ve been saving for the market?

Currently, all thrift stores and agencies are unable to accept donations. We ask that you please do not throw donations into the trash, and do not place them into unattended donation bins (no one is able to collect them at this time). If possible, store items until facilities reopen, then donate freely to local agencies, such as Home Sweet Home, ReStore, St. Vincent DePaul, Salvation Army, Goodwill, etc.

What about items that aren’t nice enough for resale/reuse purposes?

Help us to be good stewards of our planet by recycling! For a list of local resources to recycle or re-purpose your items, please click here
