Rice-Tremonti Garage Sale, June 6-8; Will be Held at REAP Building

The bi-annual Rice-Tremonti Home Garage Sale will be conducted June 6-8, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day. The big twist this year, however, is that the sale won’t be held in the house or on the grounds. The Raytown Emergency Assistance Program (REAP) management has graciously allowed Rice-Tremonti to utilize their great facilities to hold the sale at the REAP building, which is located at 9300 E. 75th St. in Raytown.

Because REAP is the primary food bank for residents of the Raytown area, we encourage all contributors and attendees to bring canned goods with them to the sale to help restock the food bank shelves.

Rice-Tremonti is looking for donations of your “good junk” including furniture, knick-knacks, decorative items, children’s clothing, toys, usable tools, books and functional household items. Please, no tires or obsolete computer equipment.

So it is important to remember then not to drop off your donations for the sale at the house. Drop off your items at the REAP building beginning on Monday, June 3. Rice-Tremonti will have volunteers working at the REAP building in the week before the sale to accept your contributions and to store them safely out of the weather.

Because of the wear and tear that the garage sale puts on the historic home, the Rice-Tremonti board decided that the sale could no longer be held inside the house. And we can’t hold it outside because it might rain.  So REAP has come to the rescue with the use of their large facility.


If you are unable to drop off your donations at REAP, please call Leigh Elmore, 816-333-3586 or Phyllis Miller, 816-353-2338 and they will make arrangements to acquire your donations.


Proceeds of the sale will go toward necessary repairs to the Rice-Tremonti Home, which dates from 1844 and was a staging area for travelers heading west on the Santa Fe, Oregon and California Trails in the mid-1800s.  The Friends of the Rice-Tremonti Home is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization dedicated to the preservation of the historic home. The Rice-Tremonti Home is located at 8801 E. 66th St. in Raytown.
