Santa Barbara, CA - Starr King Parent-Child Workshop announces its 63rd Annual Starr King Rummage Sale and Silent Auction, held in the lower courtyard of the Unitarian Society, 1525 Santa Barbara St., on Friday and Saturday, October 21 & 22, 2011, 9:30-5pm/9:30-1pm.

Find incredible bargains on unique antiques and treasures, clothing, house wares, books, furniture, sports equipment and much more. The Silent Auction features goods and services from local artists, businesses and entertainment venues. Visitors can also enjoy a delicious bake sale and gourmet lunch.

Starr King Rummage Sale and Silent Auction is a beloved community event that many people wait for all year, and provides much of the operating expenses for the cooperative preschool.

"The Rummage Sale is so much more than a fundraiser," says Yolanda Medina-Garcia, director of Starr King. "We choose to do this sale to give back to the community. It teaches children that what they no longer need is still valuable and useful to others, it avoids adding to the landfill, and helps take care of our community."

Medina-Garcia says that many families come every year and rely on the rummage sale to purchase clothing, furniture and supplies for their families.

Starr King will be accepting donations of quality rummage on Sunday, October 16 from 2-5pm. Just pull up to the curb and there will be plenty of people to unload your car. All donations are tax deductible. For pick-up of large items, call 966-1325.
