It may not be "official" garage sale season in the Rockford area, but Midway Village Museum doesn't care, they're holding a rummage sale this weekend, and they have got some awesome stuff to sell you!

If "rummage sale" and "Midway Village Museum" aren't two things that usually go together in your mind, please know you are not alone. I'm not sure exactly how Midway Village got ahold of all these cool pieces, but it sounds like their storage space is bursting and they need to let some things go, which is really good news for you and me.


Just think about this for a minute, you probably have a list of people you need to buy gifts for this holiday season, and I'm assuming a lot of those people on that list aren't the easiest to buy for. If finding unique gifts is your goal, you can't ask for a better opportunity than this Minks to Sinks Rummage Sale where you can walk out with bags full of awesome gift options.

If older treasures aren't your thing, but shopping locally is, you totally have to check out the Holiday Clearance Sale at  Midway Village's gift shop. The clearance event is running at the same time as the rummage sale, but will actually continue through December 31, 2021.

Can I give you one last Midway Village shopping tip? I just discovered that Midway Village Museum's website has an online shopping catalog FILLED with great, local gift ideas like sock monkeys, books on Rockford history, and Rockford Peaches stuff, and much more. You should totally that out too if you need some gift-giving inspiration.
