Wilmette Rummage, Hinsdale Antiques

The ladies of the Wilmette Woman's Club have been hoarding cast-off treasures in their century-old clubhouse all summer in preparation for their annual one-day rummage sale. "I'm always surprised at the people who want to give away perfectly good dining room sets," says sale chairwoman Jean Serris of Evanston: "We've got some gorgeous furniture this year." Part of the proceeds help support the club, but the bulk goes to a variety of charities (like Y-Me and Helping Hands). The sale is Saturday from 7 AM to 4 PM at the clubhouse, 930 Greenleaf Avenue (at the corner of Tenth Street) in Wilmette. Admission is free, and so is a shuttle bus from the Linden el stop. Call 847-251-0527.

Also taking place this weekend is the 42nd annual Hinsdale Antiques Show and Sale, a benefit for the Community House, a nonprofit social service agency serving eight western suburbs. Twenty-four dealers will travel from as far as Scotland to participate; they'll offer authenticated antique jewelry, art, and furniture from 10 to 9 today, and 11 to 5 Saturday and Sunday at the Community House, 415 W. Eighth Street in Hinsdale. Admission is $10. Don't plan to stroll through with the baby, though: no strollers, infant carriers, or backpacks permitted. Bryant Jones & Chosen will sing at a gospel brunch from 12:30 to 2:30 on Sunday. Brunch tickets are $30 for adults, $20 for kids and include entrance to the show that day. Call 630-323-7500 for information on other show-related events.
