Summer Rummage Readiness

Get ready!

Whether you call it a rummage sale, garage sale, yard sale or flea market, Thirty-One has a tote for you this summer.

For those holding yard sales, use the Mini Organizer as your portable cash register & yard sale management base! Keep some extra labels and pens handy in case you need to reprice some items.  Use the exterior pockets like a change drawer – keeping your quarters, nickels, and dimes separated and easily accessible for quick transactions! Your phone can also fit comfortably in one of the 8 pockets! A small notebook will fit easily in the tote itself if you’re tracking your sales.

If you’re participating a large yard sale or need to carry your items a long way from where you store them to were you’ll sell them, use the Large Utility Tote to make your set up and clean up times a breeze.

You can pack your items in the tote, and unload them at the display tables without making so many trips back and forth. This also saves you from lugging cumbersome boxes everywhere.  If you have items left at the end of the day, just line your Large Utility Tote with a trash bag and fill it up!  You can take the trash bag out and drop it off at a local donation center!

For shoppers, the exterior pockets of the Organizing Utility Tote help you organize the necessities while keeping them in easy reach: water bottles (more than one if you’re taking your kids), hand sanitizer, and even one of those tiny battery-powered fans. There’s still room for your keys, phone, and wallet in the large exterior pocket or mesh side pockets!

At the same time, the interior of the bag makes a great shopping tote! You can put your finds in it without having to worry about a plastic sack ripping, and the straps let you carry it comfortably and keep your hands free!


Don’t Forget to Take Your Lunch!


Dedicated shoppers often picnic at their cars.  Consider building a picnic kit with the Mini Organizer: small paper plates, napkins, cutlery, and cups can all fit in that handy tote!  Don’t forget the food!  For one or two, the Lunch-To-Go Thermal is a great solution! You can easily fit an ice pack, a simple lunch, and drinks in this zipping tote.


Families of 3 or 4 should move up to the Picnic Thermal Tote.  This tall tote can fit a small tower of sandwiches and even a 2 liter bottle!



If your group is larger or if you want to include extra snacks for the car ride, get the Market Thermal Tote! This large tote is great for keeping a large picnic lunch ready and cool without taking up as much space as a cooler. Plus, if you find great produce buys at the flea market, you’ve got a cool place to keep your veggies for the ride home!
If someone in your family has food allergies or a restrictive diet, consider taking individual lunches in the Thermal Tote or Cinch-It-Up Thermal Tote.  These totes can fit each person’s individual lunch and snacks, and if you’re pressed for space, they easily fold up and out of the way!

Get ready for your summer rummage sales in style with Thirty-One!
