St. Francis is looking forward to seeing you at the 2023 Rummage Sale and Craft Fair on Saturday, October 14th. The address is St. Francis Church, 9220 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls. If you are on Georgetown Pike heading east from the Village, St. Francis is on the left less than 2 miles from the Village center. If heading west on Georgetown Pike from I-495 or Old Dominion Rd, the church is half a mile on the right after passing the entrance to Great Falls Park.
Set up time is from 8:00am to 9:00am on Saturday morning. For those selling inside the church (in Millen Hall), there are two entrances. The front entrance from the parking lot is accessed via a set of outside stairs. We plan to have scouts help take your crates or boxes up the stairs to your designated area in Millen Hall marked with your name. If you want to take in your goods, there is a also driveway on the right side of Millen Hall with a sidewalk leading directly to the back entrance of the hall. Volunteers will be on hand to show outdoor vendors where to set up.
Once your car is unloaded, park on the grass area to the left of the church to leave parking spots open for shoppers.
Indoor vendors: if you have already rented a table from St. Francis, it will be set up in your selling space before you arrive. If you are signing up for the first time, you will need to bring your own table as all our tables have now been rented.
Outdoor vendors: must provide their own tables. Tents are allowed.
If you are donating an item to our raffle, our raffle coordinator (Wendy) will collect them once everyone is set up.
Shoppers will not be permitted to enter the church early. For those working the event alone, let Carmela or Annette know if you need a volunteer to man your table while you take a restroom break or would like to shop. Hot dog bag lunches (consisting of a hot dog, bag of chips, and bottled water) will be sold for $5.00, and homemade baked goods will be for sale.
Clean up is at 1pm. Scouts will be available to assist you.
Newly added to the event – a truck collecting electronics to recycle from non-business entities between 9:00am and Noon. There is no charge to recycle. For information, see the rummage sale webpage.
Additional attractions include the sale of Christmas decorations, used tools, novels and children’s books, fall flowers and pumpkins, collectibles, and a photo boutique. There will also be a silent auction of gift baskets and a raffle of vendor donations. Participation is open to everyone. Raffle and silent auction winners will be announced at 12:30.
Finally, thank you for participating. Outdoor selling spaces and a limited number of indoor spaces are available. Please let others know that we are still accepting vendors!
