Last Catlin Gabel Sale Ever This Weekend

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Thu, Nov 5, 2009 at 1:44 PM

The annual Catlin Gabel school's giant rummage sale has long been circled on the calendar of every avid thrifter in town—65 years, in fact. It's had the reputation of being a repository for castoffs from some of Portland's richest families, where one could therefore plunder for fancy labels and good quality in clothing, housewares, and more at thrift prices. The thing is huge, taking up 88,000 square feet of real estate at the Expo Center. But this year's sale (which starts at 5 pm this evening) will be the last. As reported in the O in September, the increasing use of Ebay to sell valuables rather than donate them has taken its toll on the sale's inventory and so after this weekend the rummage retires. Get it on for the last time. Same place, same rules:

Thursday, November 5 5 p.m. — 9 p.m. (35 percent markup on all items)
Friday, November 6 10 a.m. — 8 p.m.
Saturday, November 7 10 a.m. — 8 p.m. (25 percent discount all day)
Sunday, November 8 10 a.m. — 2 p.m. (50 percent discount and bag sales all day)
