NNFAPP Rummage Sale Saturday, September 28, 2013

The Fine Arts Parents and Patrons are hosting a rummage sale to benefit the Niles North Fine Arts departments and student grant program. It will be held in the Niles North parking lot along Old Orchard Road on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Donations will be accepted the day before on Friday, 9/27 and the Saturday morning of the rummage sale. The drop off will be in a truck parked in the lot during the day and early evening hours. If anyone has items to donate, we would gladly accept them.  We’re asking for gently used items and no electronics or computers or any items that require plugging in to an electrical outlet. It would help us greatly if items can be appropriately priced before drop off. Clothing will not need to be priced because they will be sold by the bagful.

Contact Gail Y. Paskind, President of Niles North Fine Arts Parents & Patrons for any questions. Email us at or call (847) 676-1235.

Would you like to volunteer to work the rummage sale? Go to this sign-up link and thank you!

Come and pick up a bargain and help support our fine programming at Niles North High School!
