Rummage Room has earned its place in the history of Greenwich when, on Oct. 1, 1964 the thrift shop opened at 191 Sound Beach Ave, originally the site of the local post office, and later served as hardware store. The thrift shop derives its name from the “rummage sales” that the Women’s Guild of the First Congregational Church of Greenwich organized. The sales were so popular that customers lined up before the sales started and left with armloads of merchandise. When the Rummage Room opened on Sound Beach Ave, the rent was $250 a month. Even the cash register was donated. For more than 50 years the Rummage Room has donated over 4 million dollars to local, national and world wide benevolent organizations.
