Rummage Thru Mount Carroll


Come to historic Mount Carroll! Experience our brick streets and country charm. Check out trash to treasures and everything in between at our annual Rummage Through Mount Carroll city-wide garage sale event.

The Mount Carroll Chamber of Commerce will hold Rummage Thru Mount Carroll on Friday and Saturday, April 25-26. The Chamber is compiling a list of those that will hold garage sales, with a goal of hosting 100 sales on this weekend.

The cost to be included on the garage sale list is $6. This fee will ensure inclusion on a paper list that will be distributed at various locations throughout town. Participants will also be posted on the city’s website at and also on the Rummage Thru Mount Carroll Facebook page. Money raised will also be used to place advertisements for the event.

To be included on the list, participants can pay their $6 fee Thursday-Sunday at Dabluz Boutique, 116 East Market Street, Mount Carroll.

Participants are also encouraged to place their own advertisements in a special grouping that is included in the classified section of the Mount Carroll Mirror-Democrat, the Savanna Times-Journal, the Northwestern Illinois Dispatch and the Galena Gazette. The cost is $10 for up to 20 words, and 20 cents a word after that.

The Chamber of Commerce will also hold a garage sale during Rummage Thru Mount Carroll. Anyone wishing to donate items can drop them off on Wednesday, April 23 at the Land of Oz, 855 South Mill Street, Mount Carroll. Those needing assistance in getting donated items to the Land of Oz can call Larry at 815-244-1630.
