The giving season brings joy aplenty but can also come with a couple of problems. Some people don’t get exactly what they wanted, while others find themselves swamped by a tsunami of stuff.

The Lincoln City Cultural Center’s Winter Rummage Sale can help on both counts, offering everything from books and clothing to small appliances and light furniture when it returns for its ninth year this weekend.

And people looking to offload any unwanted items can drop them off at the center’s east entrance from noon to 4 pm each day through Thursday, Jan. 17.

Proceeds from the sale will fund the operations of the center, which hosted more than 400 events in 2018 — its busiest year on record.

“We’ll take your used items — clean and in good repair — and turn them into concerts, art shows, workshops and children’s programs,” said executive director Niki Price.

The effort is led by volunteer Clarissa Gillis, aka “The Queen of the Masking Tape and Markers.”

“I’m so excited to see what treasures await my magic marker,” Gillis said. “You know I love to do this. I believe so much in the cultural center and what it represents in our community.”

Limited pickups may be available in the North Lincoln County area. To schedule, call the center at 541-994-9994 or Gillis at 541-764-2260.

The sale will be open from 9 am to 3 pm on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 18 and 19. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted. Lunch will be served both days.

For more information, call 541-994-9994.
