Kingswood Rummage Sale

April 28, 2005, 4:49 PM by Whitney Beem

It's one of the busiest days of the year on the westside of Sioux Falls. The Kingswood Rummage Sale is underway.

If you head west of Interstate 29 and north or south of 41st Street you can find thousands of sales. For the next three days in Sioux Falls, it's the place where you'll find bargain hunters in paradise.

Greenwood Avenue is blooming with bargains. For the last 27 years, the neighborhood has lined its streets with rummage sale signs, inviting anxious buyers like Teresa Sternhagen and her friends to visit.

Teresa Sternhagen said, "We're coming from Tabor South Dakota. We've heard all the good bargains in Sioux Falls and we enjoy the trip to the city."

Taking part in what's called the "garage sales of all garage sales" is just as fun for the sellers.

Mark Trevett said, "It's the Kingswood , its known, people come from a five state area, they plan their vacation around it. I take a week off every year during the Kingswood."

Mark Trevett has opened his garage for the event for 12 years. He loves how the rummage sale keeps growing, and understands why people keep coming back for more.

Trevett said, "We have something for everybody, trinkets, cooking things hot dogs, even polish sausage."

With happy shoppers like Sternhagen, it looks like the Kingswood success will continue to unfold, in heaps.

Trevett says your best bet is to drive around until a spot opens up. But don't park illegally because you will get a ticket.
