On the last day of Rummage in the Ramp, starting at 7 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019, take advantage of a “Name Your Price." Come down, see what’s left, and tell us what you’ll pay for it. 

The sale is happening Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon, on the second floor of the Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp, 415 E. Washington St. Visitors can use the College Street entrance of the ramp to access the sale. 

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. 

Since Rummage started nearly 13 years ago, this event has helped divert nearly 300 tons of furniture, housewares, clothing, books and other items out of the landfill. Dozens of local non-profit groups have shared the collected $189,123.
