We’re getting ready to rummage!

Welcome to the official Grand Forks Herald Rummaging with Ryan Contest blog!  Enter for a chance to win a morning of rummaging on Friday, June 1st with Ryan Bakken of the Grand Forks Herald!

4 lucky winners and their guests, along with Ryan, will be chauffered in a limo to rummage sales in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks.  We will only stop at rummage sales listed in the Friday, June 1 Herald classified section. Ryan’s road crew will follow behind in a truck to transport the bargains. Each winner will receive $25.00 in cash to spend at the rummage sales!

Look for entry blanks in the Grand Forks Herald periodically beginning on Wednesday, May 2 through Sunday, May 20!  Enter as many times as you wish, but only one entry per envelope. Also on the entry blank tell us what the best deal is or the most unique thing you have ever found at a rummage sale. Entries must be received by Wednesday, May 23. Winners will be notified by phone or email.  You may also download an entry form by clicking here or enter by sending an email with all of your information to gfherald-contests@gfherald.com    GOOD LUCK!

NOTE FROM RYAN:   Greetings, potential rummagers. I’d like to encourage men to sign up for the drawing. In the 4 years I’ve been involved in this promotion, we haven’t had a male winner yet. It’s time to break that streak. The limo could use some more testosterone!

  1. This would be wonderully enjoyable. It is special to happen upon treasures to add to the countless things we can’t resist. One of my treasures was a set of dishes–eight 6-piece place settings—lovely grape pattern, no chips, etc., for 10 dollars. Sometime years later, after giving it to someone, they learned it was valued at over $400.00! Lucky them!

  2. My wife won this contest the first year Ryan had to fill in for Rona. She had a blast and since we both love to Rummage and hunt for treasures I was encouraged to enter when my wife said Ryan was calling on Men to enter. If I win I will bring some testosterone and maybe my wife if shes nice to me.

  3. I am a mom of 4 and a home daycare provider. I would love the chance to go for the day and rummage sale to look for items for my own children and my daycare kids.

  4. Well, i hit maybe 5-10 rummages a year..trying to scope out that unusual piece that I have been missing all my life! I love taking old furniture and redoing them or finding old clocks and watches to make Steampunk Jewelry out of! At times its really hard to pass up a Snowman, I just dont know why but Im totaly in love with those cold hearted guys!!
