On the last day of Rummage in the Ramp, Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, take advantage of a “Name your Price” sale, beginning at 7:30 a.m.. Come down, see what’s left, and tell us what you’ll pay for it. 

The sale is happening Friday from noon to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon, at the Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp, 415 E. Washington St. This annual City-sponsored event occurs as leases changeover each year in Iowa City at the end of July. Most items are priced $20 or under. Profits are split between environmental and human services non-profit groups that volunteer to work the sale. 

Over the last decade, this event has helped divert more than 265 tons of furniture, housewares, clothing, books and other items out of the landfill. Dozens of local non-profit groups have shared the $168,300 collected.
