Kingswood Rummage Kicks Off In SF



Bookmark and Share

The largest rummage sale in the region, attracting thousands of people from South Dakota and nearby states, took place as planned Wednesday, despite recent winter weather.

 

This marks the 35th annual Kingswood Rummage Sale and every year nearly 100,000 people head to Sioux Falls to shop for a good bargain.

 

On Wednesday, the weather went from sunny and warm, to cloudy and chilly, then ending with some rainfall, but that didn't stop people from scoping out the sale for some deals.

 

This is Donna Degeest's , from Dimock, 21st time coming to the Kingswood Rummage Sale.

 

"My oldest daughter has been coming since I was pregnant with her and she's come every year since," said Degeest.

 

This year, she's shopping with her three daughters who all share a common interest.

 

"The kids find clothes, we find household items and it's just fun to eat at the same places, look we're having SDSU ice cream on a 50 degree weather day and it looks like it's going to start raining," said Degeest.

 

From shoppers to garage sale hosts, family time is a big part of the highly anticipated sale.

 

"We have a lot of fun. My son is five, he enjoys helping and my daughter is eight, she loves getting home from school to help," said Robyn Arens.

 

Robyn Arens said people don't like to shop on an empty stomach, so this year, they have a temporary food permit to keep shoppers full with hot dogs, popcorn and cotton candy.

 

"So many people schedule their vacation around it. It just brings so many people to Sioux Falls," said Arens.

 

With the start of the sale a little chilly outside,  some snow STILL on the ground, Arens is looking forward to what Mother Nature has in store soon.

 

"We are hoping the weather man is correct and that we're going to get 70's and 60's for sure by Friday," said Arens.

 

However, despite the weather, the Degeest clan wouldn't miss the sale for anything.

 

"We've been through rain, snow, 100 degree weather, everything so we'd be here no matter what," said Degeest.

 

Last week, the Kingswood Rummage Sale board discussed cancelling the event this year due to damage from the spring storm, but luckily, they decided too many people would be affected and voted to carry on with the sale.

 

There are hundreds and hundreds of garage sales to check out, the event goes through Saturday.
