MIDDLETON, WI – Wisconsin’s largest two-day resale fundraiser features more than 5000 quality items, May 31 and June 1 at Keva Sports Center, Middleton, near Madison.  Previously enjoyed merchandise as well as some new items are displayed in easy-to-navigate themed sections, including dining, kitchen gallery, antiques, fine furniture, artwork, sporting goods, jewelry, toys and more. Credit and debit cards are accepted.

An early-bird entrance fee of $10 gives serious bargain hunters an opportunity to be the first to shop the resale on Friday, May 31, from 8-11 a.m.  Tickets are available at the door, starting at 7 a.m. on May 31 or can be purchased in advance at the Attic Angel Association office, 640 Junction Road.  Entrance to the sale is free from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

On June 1, shoppers find more bargains with price reductions until noon, including many half- price items.  The sale concludes with the popular one hour Bag Bonanza from noon until 1 p.m. Saturday, where shoppers purchase as many grocery-sized bags as they wish for $5 each and pack them full of remaining merchandise.

“The fun and festive all-you-can-fit into a bag sale is one of the highlights of the sale,” said Nancy Callan Latta, Attic Sale volunteer marketing chair.

The sale attracts shoppers from around the Upper Midwest, Latta said, ranging from people intent on furnishing entire homes and apartments to others on a mission to purchase quality antiques, jewelry, kitchenware, sports gear and more. 

“Items for sale must meet high standards,” Latta said. “Much of the merchandise comes from the homes of Attic Angel Association members and area residents. Retail stores donate new items”

The sale includes almost everything except clothing and holiday merchandise, which is sold at the two other Attic Angel Association annual signature events. The Classic Clothing Sale is Sept. 27-28, and Holidays Galore & More is set for Nov. 1-2.  Proceeds from the sales will mostly fund programs that support Dane County families of children from birth to age 13 who are experiencing stress and trauma.  

To reach Keva Sports Center, take Hwy 12 to Middleton and go west on Airport Road about a quarter mile to 8312 Forsythia Street.
