Mobberly Baptist Church's Rummage Sale Mobberly Baptist Church's Rummage Sale

On Wednesday, we were invited for a sneak peek into a Longview rummage sale that will open its doors on Friday.

Greg Scobee, the coordinator of this event, said all of the proceeds will benefit residents in Gregg County.

This is Mobberly Baptist Church's fourth annual rummage sale, an event they said brings in more than $20,000 annually that the church then divides up and gives to people in need.

"The reason we have this rummage sale is to help people in the community that are in need and there's a lot of people in need, people without work," Scobee said.

The event is at the Longview Exhibit Center, located across from Maude Cobb Convention Center and Activity Complex.

On Friday, the doors will open at 8 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. They are also asking for attendees to donate $1 upon entering the sale.

On Saturday, no entry fee will be required and all items will be half off.

Doors open on Saturday at 8 a.m. and close at 2 p.m.

The items Mobberly Baptist Church volunteers are not able to sell will be donated to local charitable organizations.
