Kingswood Rummage Fights To Hold Sale



Bookmark and Share

An event that has been around in Sioux Falls for decades faced cancellation due to the damage the spring storm unleashed on Sioux Falls.

 

This year marks the 35th annual Kingswood Rummage Sale, one that attracts thousands of people each year.

 

After a heavy debate, the Rummage Board made their decision on whether to cancel the anticipated sale.

 

The Kingswood Rummage Sale will go on as planned this year with the help of the city, working to clear neighborhoods before shoppers start piling in.

 

This time last year, people at the sale could see green for days and plenty of sunshine.

 

However, Mother Nature has something different in store this spring, weather Freda Nordstrom and her husband Greg are still feeling the effects from.

 

"We had a lot of little branches that fell," said Freda Nordstrom.

 

Freda and Greg Nordstrom have lived in their home since 1979 and have watched the Kingswood Rummage Sale evolve.

 

"This year my daughter's going to have one at our place so we're hoping for good weather but I don't know," said Nordstrom.

 

Nordstrom recalled the warm weather last spring, remembering the layers of clothes disappearing as she shopped.

 

"We we're peeling them off by the time afternoon rolled around," said Nordstrom.

 

The Kingswood Rummage Sale is checking into purchasing something a little different this year to protect themselves from the spring storm damage.

 

"Event insurance policy to protect our citizens and protect the people who are hosting a rummage," said Nordstrom.

 

Bridget Myers, a member on the Kingswood Rummage board said the sale draws in 80 to 100,000 people and has a major economic impact on hotels, gas stations and surrounding businesses, along with people hosting sales for income, including one of Myers neighbors.

 

"By holding this, he raises enough money to fly his college student home, so it's just all the people it impacted, it was really important we hold this rummage this year," said Myers.

 

For the Nordstroms, they're anticipating what the future holds next week.

 

"Hoping for nice weather and hoping to find some great deals," said Nordstrom.

The sale starts next week and runs April 24th through the 27th.

 

The city and rummage board have asked people to not set up their sales on Monday and Tuesday, to let city crews finish clearing out branches and debris for opening day of the sale on April 24th.
