Rumage Sales

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In the category of posts suitable for Friday afternoons, and only Friday afternoons, we come to this bit from Seattle blogger Yard Sale Bloodbath. Her color on this sign, which reads, "Huge All School Rumage Sale!": "It’s one thing if a kid had written up this sign, but the fact that it was actually printed up like this ? for a school fundraiser ? well, that’s pretty bad. Rumage: does that rhyme with plumage?" [Yard Sale Bloodbath]
